Ultimate Guitar Play-Along: Rock Guitar Classics Released by Alfred Music Publishing

Los Angeles, CA — September 2011 - Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, is proud to announce the release of Ultimate Guitar Play-Along: Rock Guitar Classics, featuring eight rock song classics as the first mixed folio edition in the Ultimate Play-Along series.

Ultimate Guitar Play-Along: Rock Guitar Classics contains high-quality, professional recordings, authentic TAB transcriptions, music notation, lyrics, and chords, to songs such as “Another Brick in the Wall” (Part 2) (Pink Floyd), “Don't Stop Believin'” (Journey), “Rock and Roll” (Led Zeppelin), “Tom Sawyer” (Rush), and more. Great as a supplement to lessons or just for fun, the included CD has two versions of every song: an instrumental sound-alike recording and an instrumental accompaniment track without guitar to play along with. The built-in TNT (Tone 'N' Tempo) Changer software allows for sections to be looped for practice, tempo and key changes, and the ability to switch back and forth between the full-instrumental and play-along tracks.

Providing everything needed to jam to rock favorites, the Ultimate Guitar Play-Along series transcriptions and play-along tracks make it feel as if you are playing with the actual band. Other books in the series include play-along collections of most-revered songs from some of rock music’s greatest bands, including Rush, Journey, Green Day, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, R.E.M., and many more.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, this songbook is printed on 100% recycled paper.
