(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-07-04)
Alfred Music Publishing has partnered with the National Guitar Workshop to
release a brand-new guitar method, Beginner’s Guide to Electric
Guitar, by Burgess Speed.
Beginner's Guide to Electric Guitar provides everything needed to
start playing electric guitar. With an easy-to-understand and
down-to-earth tone, this book gets to the important stuff first and
doesn't bog you down with all the details. Learn all about the
different types of electric guitars, amplifiers, and effects, all
while learning how to play like your favorite bands such as Led
Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Green Day,
Metallica, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC,
Alice in Chains, and more.
To keep things simple, the music examples are written in TAB only and
are designed to get you playing quickly—from riffs on a single string
to power chords, pentatonic scales, and tunes in drop-D tuning. The
accompanying CD features full band play-along tracks, allowing you to
jam to your favorite hits instantly.
Beginner’s Guide to Electric Guitar is now available as a book and CD
set for $14.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or
buy it today at www.alfred.com.
