Every developing guitarist wants to know how to produce those amazing sounds familiar to us all - the awesome solos and guitar virtuosity, the signature riffs of the most memorable songs. This is the ideal book for anyone who can't get enough of those classic styles. Split into genres - blues, heavy metal, punk and indie, and even country and jazz - each section has an introduction which captures the main artists and their styles. Then try your hand at any of the notation or TAB examples of riffs in the style of everyone from Ritchie Blackmore and Jimmy Page to Slash and Kurt Cobain. Classic Riffs is part of our highly successful series of practical ring-bound guides to playing music.
Supported online by the Flame Tree Music website. Now you can see the chord, then reach for your phone and hear the chord or scale. Using any free QR code reader app (Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows) a web site opens automatically and you can listen to the chord as a strum, an arpeggio (each note played separately) and hear it as a piano chord.
