Hundreds of Reviews for each Book include:
  • There are a lot of guitar books that seem to teach the same things, not this one. Rock Rhythm really focuses on getting you to 'rock out' and learn something along the way. It's really taught me about rhythm and timing and inspired me to create new sounding riffs. Then it moves onto common chords used in rock and how to use them. The book is written in 'plain English' and simple way, it's like having a teacher with you. Highly recommended.
  • I've been working through this for about two weeks and I can already tell I'm improving! I've been playing electric for about 1 year, so I have basic knowledge of chords. However, my timing and rhythm are not the greatest, but I feel like I'm improving... quickly! I highly recommend and can't wait to get further into the book!
  • While you can immediately tell the teaching experience that went into writing this book, it stays engaging throughout. The examples are very relevant and fun to play and progressing through music history is probably the only way to go. If you stick with it I am sure you will be rewarded with great musical progress.
