LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922, is proud to partner with the National Guitar Workshop to release a brand-new guitar method, Beginner’s Guide to Electric Guitar, by Burgess Speed.

Beginner's Guide to Electric Guitar provides everything needed to start playing electric guitar. With an easy-to-understand and down-to-earth tone, this book gets to the important stuff first and doesn't bog you down with all the details. Learn all about the different types of electric guitars, amplifiers, and effects, all while learning how to play like your favorite bands such as Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Green Day, Metallica, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, Alice in Chains, and more.

To keep things simple, the music examples are written in TAB only and are designed to get you playing quickly—from riffs on a single string to power chords, pentatonic scales, and tunes in drop-D tuning. The accompanying CD features full band play-along tracks, allowing you to jam to your favorite hits instantly.

Beginner’s Guide to Electric Guitar is now available as a book and CD set for $14.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today at
