Editors Note Face it, being a rock guitarist is just about the coolest thing you can be ? next to a secret agent with a black belt in karate. But even if you were a butt-kicking international person of mystery, playing rock guitar would still be cooler because it involves art, passion, power, poetry, and the ability to move an audience of listeners. Whether "moving your listeners" means mowing down crowd surfers with your power chords or making the audience cry with your sensitive melodies, no other musical instrument allows you so much versatility. ||Whatever rocks your world, Rock Guitar For Dummies can help you bring that message out through your fingers and onto that electric guitar that's slung over your shoulder. If you're a beginner, you'll discover what you need to know to start playing immediately, without drowning in complicated music theory. If you've been playing for a while, you can pick up some tips to help improve your playing and move to the next level.||Here's a sampling of the topics covered in Rock Guitar For Dummies:||||How electric guitars and amplifiers work||||Choosing the right guitar and amp for you, and how to care for them||||Left-hand and right-hand guitar techniques||The different styles of rock guitar playing||Creating great riffs||The history of rock guitar||Buying accessories for your new toy||Top Ten lists of the guitarists you should listen to, the rock albums you must have, and the classic guitars you should know about||||Rock Guitar For Dummies also comes with a CD that includes audio of every example shown in the book, plus play-along tracks with a band.||So, if you consider yourself an air guitar virtuoso and would like to try the real thing, Rock Guitar For Dummies can help you on your way to becoming an accomplished guitarist.
