Alfred Music Publishing Celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Legendary Music Festival, Woodstock

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Alfred Music Publishing, a leading provider of high-quality music products since 1922, is thrilled to release Woodstock: The Guitar TAB Songbook, a collection of hit songs performed at the legendary music festival to commemorate the 40th anniversary of this historic event.

For much of the world, the summer of ’69 is marked by the milestone of mankind’s first steps on the moon. But, for the baby boomer generation and free spirits everywhere, the summer of ’69 is defined by a mid-August music festival, where a half-million young people wallow in the mud of Max Yasgur’s 600-acre dairy farm. Now music makers and music enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy 23 classic songs performed at the original event, including "Woodstock" as performed by CSN&Y as a special bonus, with the release of Woodstock: The Guitar TAB Songbook. Along with these classic hits, this collection provides a unique perspective into the social climate during the event as well as a chronological overview of all the songs contained in the book.

Woodstock: The Guitar TAB Songbook  is now available for $19.95. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today at alfred.com/guitar.
