The Hold Steady: Guitar TAB Anthology

Los Angeles, CA—November 2010 - Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, is excited to release the very first Guitar TAB Anthology to Brooklyn-based rock band, The Hold Steady. The songbook is authentically transcribed for guitar in both TAB and music notation, including vocal parts and lyrics.

The Hold Steady: Guitar TAB Anthology contains 17 of their greatest songs from all five of their studio albums, including Almost Killed Me, Separation Sunday, Boys and Girls in America, Stay Positive, and Heaven Is Whenever. Fans and guitarists can play and sing to their favorite songs from The Hold Steady, including “Sequestered in Memphis,” “Stay Positive,” “Hurricane J,” and more. Also included is the song “Girls Like Status” from the soundtrack to Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie for Theaters.

Dubbed “America's greatest bar band” by Rolling Stone magazine, The Hold Steady has forged its place in rock music with its musical styles of “Seventies hard-rock guitar grind” and “Eighties college-rock romanticism,” often compared to Bruce Springsteen for their raw sound and lyricism. To date, the band has produced five studio albums, one live album, and four EPs.

The Hold Steady: Guitar TAB Anthology is now available for $21.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today at
