by Chad Johnson
sku: 49-695930
Book with online audio. This incredibly in-depth book takes you from the very beginning to playing gigs. With a wry sense of humor the author covers everything you need to know: tuning, stretching, music notation, rhythm notation, scales, chords, arpeggios, getting a feel for the groove, modes, fills and solos, gear, rock, blues, country and jazz styles, care and maintenance, and much more. Uses examples from over 40 popular songs, with five full-transcriptions of "Sweet Emotion," "All I Wanna Do," "Message in a Bottle," "I Want You Back" and "Cissy Strut." Audio includes over 90 tracks of demos and play-alongs, and Playback+, an audio player that lets you slow down without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right. Note/tab. 195 pp.   More Details...
