LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, January 13, 2011

Alfred Music Publishing proudly presents to Journey fans the very first set of play-along songbooks for guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums, featuring authentic sheet music to the legendary rock band’s greatest hits.

Ultimate Play-Along: Journey songbooks are designed to allow musicians to play along to their favorite Journey classics in the comfort of their home, featuring sound-alike tracks produced by a five-time, Grammy© award-winning production team. Fans will enjoy incredible Journey hits including “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Faithfully,” “Open Arms,” “Separate Ways,” and more. Featuring completely authentic transcriptions to each of the songs, each of these classic songsare written in full TAB (for guitar and bass) and music notation.

Included with each book are CDs that contain two versions of every song: an instrumental sound-alike recording, and an instrumental accompaniment track (minus the featured instrument) so you can play along to these legendary songs.

In addition, when you use the CDs in your computer, the included TNT (Tone ’N’ Tempo) Changer, exclusively from Alfred, lets players easily loop sections for practice, slow tracks down or speed them up without changing the pitch, switch back and forth between full instrumental and accompaniment tracks, and even change the key!

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving our environment, this book is printed on 100% recycled paper stock.

Ultimate Play-Along: Journey songbooks are now available for guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums in book & 2 CD format for $19.99 each. Pick up your copies at a local music retail store, or buy them today at
