Product Details


You've started learning the guitar---what's the first thing you want to play? A monster riff, of course! Greatest Rock Guitar Riffs provides a solid repertoire of the most recognizable riffs in the pantheon of rock, pop, and acoustic music. The riffs throughout also come with performance tips, settings for your amp and pedals so you can nail the tone, and juicy tidbits on the origins of the music. And the included DVD-ROM contains MP3s that demonstrate what each part should sound like, plus Alfred's TNT 2 software so you can slow down the audio and loop sections for more focused practice. From the twangy swagger of "James Bond Theme" and the rockabilly groove of "Shakin' All Over," to the driving chug of Sabbath's "Paranoid," the thunder of Motorhead's "Ace of Spades," and the pentatonic strut of "Play That Funky Music," this book will get you playing recognizable music instantly.
