Getting Into Guitar Styles is the guitarist's guide to playing different musical styles. The styles that are covered include Blues, Rock, Country, Funk, R & B, Latin, Reggae, Fingerstyle, and Classical as well as different styles of Jazz such as Traditional Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, and Fusion. The musical elements and techniques that are used in different styles of music are looked at. The book not only looks at and demonstrates different musical styles, but in the process it shows the practical application of scales and other musical elements. Many of the examples on the companion CD are played with the written guitar part and also without the written part so you can play the written part with the rhythm tracks or improvise your own part. The book has standard notation and tablature as well as fingerboard diagrams. The companion audio CD is included.
