The more than 250 licks selected for inclusion here serve as a reference for anyone in search of authentic sounding material. This book is more than a mere compilation of licks. By presenting detailed information about personal influences, identifiable elements, harmonic material, sound (preferred instruments, amps, effects, etc.) and discographies, the book provides the reader with a well-rounded picture of each individual guitarist. In addition, the level of technical difficulty increases parallel to the chronological sequence, so the book can also be used as a methodically constructed learning aid for beginning to advanced players. The accompanying CD is over 70 minutes in length. It will not only help readers play the licks, but gives them the ability to select each profiled guitarist's music individually.
