This book breaks down the elements that go into playing rock piano – the melodic riffs, chords, rhythms and bass lines – and explores styles and techniques all over the map: from hard-driving rock to sweet ballads, funky blues riffs to jazz-inflected polychords. Section I takes examples from dozens of famous songs and shows you exactly what goes on in the piano parts. Section II has seven note-for-note transcriptionsof piano solos by classic rock pianists. These are written out in metic ulous detail and analyzed for study and inspiration. Proceed and learn the way of the masters!
