At Music Gadgets we’ve featured Alfred Music Publishing a few times in the last month, and probably for good reason considering they are the No. 1 educational music publisher for the last 80-plus years. Now, they are on the music news radar again with the release of their educational book and CD series, The Guitar Experience.
A “practical guide to the landmark styles of guitar”, The Guitar Experience is a set of three guides that take the hand of intermediate and advanced guitarists and lead them down a path that reveals the styles and techniques behind some of the foremost contributors to each respective genre. The three genres covered by The Guitar Experience are jazz, blues, and rock guitar.
The Jazz Guitar Experience covers bebop, fusion, gypsy, modern jazz, and more, and provides a historical backdrop for understanding the blues, bossa nova, and other jazz influences. The Blues Guitar Experience lends intermediate and advanced guitarists some aid in mastering authentic blues performances, while also offering up education concerning electric blues, modern-day blues, and British blues rock. Finally, The Rock Guitar Experience provides instruction in the style of such epic rock artists as Cream, the Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and many more.
Each in The Guitar Experience line is available as a book and CD set for $16.95. Check your local music retailer or click here.
