The aim of this book and CD is to document the development of rock guitar playing by thoroughly investigating the styles of twenty distinctive and influential guitar greats, including Chuck Berry, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler, Gary Moore, Eddie van Halen, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and others. The more than 250 licks selected for inclusion here serve as a reference for anyone in search of authentic sounding material. This book is more than a mere compilation of licks. By presenting detailed information about personal influences, identifiable elements, harmonic material, sound (preferred instruments, amps, effects, etc.) and discographies, the book provides the reader with a well-rounded picture of each individual guitarist. In addition, the level of technical difficulty increases parallel to the chronological sequence, so the book can also be used as a methodically constructed learning aid for beginning to advanced players. The accompanying CD is over 70 minutes in length. It will not only help readers play the licks, but gives them the ability to select each profiled guitarist's music individually. In notation and tablature.
