There is no doubt that rock music's biggest influence is the blues. Most of rock music's most famous chord progressions are almost identical to famous blues progressions. The bass and drum parts may be a bit different in rock, but the progressions are almost identical. Almost every chord progression in this book can be found in any era of rock and blues. Under the chords sample bass lines are included. This book covers almost every style of rock and blues. The accompanying CD contains recordings of all the examples, first with bass and drums, then without bass.

    I love how you can play it over and over until you finally get it down. Great teaching method. Plus, the actual book is also helpful in recognizing the length of each note as you go along. Example 1/8, quarter and full.
