LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Tuesday, April 24, 2012
Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases Ultimate Play Along: Foo Fighters, a Book & 2 Enhanced CD set for Bass, Drum, and Guitar, featuring authentic transcriptions to eight Foo Fighters rock anthems.

Ultimate Play Along: Foo Fighters series features everything needed to jam with some of the greatest hit songs by the Grammy®-winning rock band. From hobbyists who want to learn how to play top Foo Fighter songs to the serious rock players, premium recordings and note-for-note transcriptions position musicians to sound just like the chart-topping group. Songs include the Grammy-winning singles “All My Life” and “The Pretender,” along with the band's most successful and recognized cut, “Everlong,” among other hits singles.

Two audio versions of every song are included in the CDs: An instrumental sound-alike recording and a version without the main instrument (bass, drum, or guitar) so users can play along. In the Drum edition, three audio versions are provided on the included CDs: An instrumental sound-alike recording, a version without drums but with a constant click track, and a version without drums and without a click track.

In addition, the Tone ‘N’ Tempo (TNT) Changer included on the CDs give users a customized learning experience, allowing users to easily loop sections for practice, slow tracks down or speed them up without changing the pitch, change the key. The CDs can also be played in a conventional CD player.

In addition to the complete song charts, drum-only charts are provided in the Drum book for convenience, along with a helpful drum notation key for reference. Both the Bass and Guitar books are written in standard notation and TAB. The Guitar book includes a helpful Guitar TAB Glossary that includes guidance and explanation on bending notes, articulations, pick direction, and more. A similar glossary is included in the Bass edition.

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

Ultimate Play Along: Foo Fighters for guitar, bass, and drums are now available for $19.99 each, and can be found at music retail stores and at alfred.com.
