You then move right along to playing licks and melodies in the style of some of rock's greatest songs. You will learn notes, chords, power chords, scales, and songs, lesson by lesson, all while increasing your knowledge of reading and understanding standard musical notation and TAB. When you finish, you will be playing an authentic arrangement of the main riffs from Led Zeppelin's "Good Times Bad Times."
