This hardcover book with internal wire-o binding is 6.5in x 8in, a perfect size for readers to keep handy. The binding allows it to lie open flat for easy reference during practice. The stylish design of the book, along with the interior photographs, illustrations and diagrams, make the learning process simple and fun for beginners and enthusiasts alike.
Chapters describe riffs from Chuck Berry, the Beatles, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Dave Gilmour, Eddie Van Halen, Keith Richards, and Nirvana. From blues to progressive rock to heavy metal and alternative rock, all music lovers will find music that inspires them.
You don't need to be a guitar whiz to use this book, but a functional level of ability is assumed. Players of all levels should find it a useful and informative resource. Because this is not a traditional "teach yourself" book, it is not progressive; it can be dipped into at any point—whenever inspiration or just some fresh ideas are needed.
