Cake: Guitar TAB Anthology Released by Alfred Music Publishing

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, March 24, 2011

Alfred Music Publishing, the exclusive print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, releases Cake: Guitar TAB Anthology, a 21-song guitar sheet music collection of the band’s most popular songs.

Cake: Guitar TAB Anthology is an assortment of Cake’s most popular songs, all carefully transcribed in full TAB and notation, including chord symbols and lyrics. Fans of the alternative rock group will enjoy playing and singing favorite hits from seven of their albums, including such songs as “No Phone,” “Short Skirt/Long Jacket,” and “The Distance.”

Often classified as indie or alt rock, Cake is known for their unique sound that combines various musical genres such as funk, ska, rockabilly, rap, country, and even jazz. The recognizable song styling of lead singer John McCrea is distinguished by half-sung, half-spoken vocals and lyrical wordplay, producing catchy singles that are both witty and satirical.

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

Cake: Guitar TAB Anthology (00-37310) is now available for $21.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com/guitar.
