Jimmy Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Kurt Cobain - all pioneers in the world of rock guitar, creating individual yet highly influential styles seemingly effortlessly and crafting some of the best rock music ever written. But how did they get their sounds, and what can you do to recreate them?
Giants Of Rock gives the lowdown on 20 of the world's biggest rock acts, from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to U2, breaking down their technique, equipment and playing style so that the budding guitarist can sound like their axe-wielding hero. Complete with two CDs containing 22 backing tracks and 20 lead tracks in the styles of the artists featured inside, as well as full tab and notation for each song, Giants Of Rock is all you need to become a Strat-wielding, distortion-soaked, windmilling maniac!

          Musicroom Reviews

          This book does not include any tracks actually written by the artists in question, but the tracks in their "style" do not sound a thing like the artists they are supposed to! Do not buy!
