Alfred Music Publishing Expands Its Ultimate Easy Play Along Series with New Classic Rock Guitar Editions

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Tuesday, January 15, 2013
As the official music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, Alfred is proud to announce our brand new Ultimate Easy Play-Along series featuring guitar TAB, sound-alike tracks, free video lessons, and specialized music software. The first three releases are The British Invasion: 1964, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones. Perfect for novice and pros alike, each book includes easy-to-play TAB arrangements of all the great guitar parts to these classic guitar songs. Guitarists will learn these classics by listening to, watching and emulating our included videos and play-along tracks.

Each book provides free YouTube-style demonstration videos that teach and demonstrate all the critical guitar parts – up close and slowed down. Also included is Alfred’s exclusive TNT2 Custom Mix software, which provides a professional 6-channel mixer interface to create a play-along mix, loop sections, and even slow down or change keys. The British Invasion edition contains arrangements of the 1964 “British Invasion” music revolution, led by way of the Beatles. Seven pivotal early Beatles songs are included, such as “Do You Want to Know a Secret,” “From Me to You,” “I Saw Her Standing There,” and more. The Led Zeppelin edition includes eight arrangements from the band that forever changed rock and roll. Formed with the goal of fusing very heavy rock and British folk music, the book includes some of the songs the band was best known for, such as “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” “Black Dog,” “Bron-Yr-Aur,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “Immigrant Song,” and more. The Rolling Stones edition provides eight arrangements showcasing Keith Richards’ gut-punching guitar riffs, such as “Honky Tonk Women, “ “The Last Time,” “Jumpin' Jack Flash,” “Paint It, Black,” “(I Can't Get No) Satisaction,” and more.

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

The new Ultimate Easy Play-Along Book & CD sets are now available for $16.99 each at music retail stores and at alfred.com/guitar.
