This book and CD combination are about the styles and grooves that make up the full array of today's Rock scene. If you want to be a well-rounded, well-trained musician, this has all the material you need to know! You will also get insight into the constant cross-fertilization of sub-styles that make Rock a rich and exciting musical genre.
This book breaks down Rock into fifteen of the most important sub-styles. For each sub-style, you get a comprehensive lesson centring on a fully notated 'chart' of the music on the CD. The CD contains a performance demo and then a version without the drums so you can play along. With the sound of the music in your ears, you can study and practice the technical aspects performing the rhythms and lines of each style.
Each style section contains historical references and background, useful information and explanations about the styles, notated musical examples of each approach, technical exercises to help with particular passages, important performance tips and demonstration performances and play-along tracks on accompaniment CDs.
