LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Monday, April 23, 2012

Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, releases The Led Zeppelin Guitar Method Book & Enhanced CD set, the first ever guitar method to feature songs from the legendary band, with instructional material by award-winning authors Ron Manus and L. C. Harnsberger.

The highly anticipated Led Zeppelin Guitar Method teaches the essentials required to play guitar right away, applied to 26 time-honored songs from the iconic band, written in standard notation and TAB. Beginning with the vocal melodies, the method book quickly moves on to teach authentic-sounding guitar parts of such classics as “Stairway to Heaven,” ”Immigrant Song,” “Whole Lotta Love,” “Misty Mountain Hop,” “Over the Hills and Far Away,” “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” and many more. Zeppelin songs are used to illustrate and teach concepts such as popular chord forms, major and minor scales, power chords, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and much more. Carefully arranged to capture the essence of their original recordings, some song arrangements have been simplified to facilitate a faster, more enjoyable learning process.
