Learn to play rhythm and lead rock guitar with the step-by-step lessons and 70 great rock songs in this book/CD pack! The Hal Leonard Rock Guitar Method is your complete guide to learning rock guitar. This book uses real rock songs - no corny rock arrangements of nursery rhymes here! - to teach you the basics of rhythm and lead rock guitar in the style of Eric Clapton, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and many others. Lessons include power chords, riffs, scales, licks, string bending, vibrato, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and slides, to name a few. Each chapter concludes with a jam session, which enables you to jam along to such rock classics as "Wild Thing," "Crossroads," and "Takin' Care of Business."
