LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, in conjunction with Guitar World Magazine, expands the new Guitar World instructional songbooks with the release of Expressway to Classic Rock, featuring 25 of the most important and signature guitar-driven rock songs matched with step-by-step lessons.

Guitar World: Expressway to Classic Rock features easy-to-use TAB arrangements and is designed to place intermediate and novice players on the fast track to mastering many of the greatest guitar songs of all time. Twenty-five arrangements of the most important classic rock guitar songs of all time are included, such as “Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2),” “Brown Sugar,” “Don't Stop Believin',” “Hotel California,” “Layla,” “Life in the Fast Lane,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “Sunshine of Your Love,” and many more.

Each song is accompanied by a detailed lesson focused on critical guitar parts, by Guitar World editor Jimmy Brown. The two included CDs contain full-length sound-alike demonstration and play-along recordings. Additionally, the included TNT (Tone 'N' Tempo) Changer software on the discs allows users to slow the tracks down, loop sections, change keys, mute the guitar, or even mute the vocals for singing practice. More than just lessons, the method also contains various sections of additional information such as tips on gear and effects settings, artist biographies, including interesting anecdotes about the artist, band, and songs.

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

Guitar World: Expressway to Classic Rock (00-37258) is now available for $24.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com/guitar.
