Much of the language of rock guitar is in riffs and this collection will serve as a great introduction to killer riffs from the 60s and 70s. A riff is a short musical passage that is repeated enough to serve as a 'signature' inside a song, so a guitarist of average ability who learns how to riff can sound good and be playing in a band within a year.
In the book you will find tips on tone and technique and the music is presented in standard notation with fret-hand fingerings, picking and strum marking, articulation markings, tablature and chord boxes.
The two accompanying CDs present each riff played with the backing tracks in its entirety. Then the guitar part only, so you can hear what you're supposed to play by itself. Finally, you will hear only the backing tracks and this is your opportunity to step into the spotlight and ROCK!
