Learn to play rock guitar and open up a brand new world of musical knowledge with this exciting method from Alfred Music. Beginners of all ages can start their journey to a lifetime of playing electric guitar. Beginning with the fundamentals, you will learn about various guitar types and the sounds they create, how to care for your own guitar, and standard musical notation and TAB. You then move right along to playing licks and melodies in the style of some of rock's greatest songs. You will learn notes, chords, power chords, scales, and songs, lesson by lesson, all while increasing your knowledge of reading and understanding standard musical notation and TAB. When you finish, you will be playing an authentic arrangement of the main riffs from Led Zeppelin's "Good Times Bad Times."

The accompanying DVD provides over 2 hours of video instruction and over 160 performance and play-along MP3 tracks, to help you understand the concepts with more ease and efficiency. Be your own teacher, and let Alfred Music be your resource every step of the way.
