An instructional book that helps rock guitarists of all levels hone their chops and learn from the masters. Offering lessons, licks, and tips drawn from rock guitar masters, this how-to guide boosts players' soloing techniques, rhythm playing, and understanding of rock theory. Fully updated and expanded, it reveals secrets of nu-metal stars such as Rage Against the Machine, provides lessons on roots-rock legends including Carl Perkins, teaches riffs from rock gods such as Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen, and spotlights the latest on gear and recording. This book is like taking a private lesson with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, or Keith Richards. Beginners get how-to guidance plus notational symbols for building a solid rock 'n' roll fretboard foundation. Experienced players will find insights from guitar greats to use at the next gig. Outlining the basics as well as some of the masters' techniques, the easy-to-use book covers pentatonic scales, double- and triple-stop approaches to chords and solos, open tuning, wah-wah, the Hendrix rhythm style, and more. With the online recordings bringing these lessons to life, players can pick apart the music by string, fret, and finger while hearing exactly how it should sound.Biografía del autor:
