How to play rockabilly guitar and get good, fast! The cover of “How To Play Rockabilly Guitar and get guitar chords pdf ebook, fast!
What it is: It’s got the subtitle “The beginner’s guide to the rockabilly style” and it covers the very basics of guitar playing incl. It’s far from just a beginner’s guide to guitar playing though, it’s mainly an introduction to the rockabilly guitar style and the art of improvising within that genre. If you haven’t learned how to improvise, playing rockabilly lead guitar will never feel natural or easy. That’s why the teaching is centred on improvisation.
It also shows you how to play many classic rockabilly riffs, chords and some guitar boogie bass lines besides two scales, so you have something to build on. It has tabs, chord diagrams, pictures and the text doesn’t require any previous technical musical knowledge to understand. It’s written in everyday language, but don’t let that fool you. It IS based on music theory. The method of learning is just far less complicated and gets to the point. What it’s not: It doesn’t cover finger picking and it doesn’t deal with the advanced music theory of rockabilly.
However, you would have to have a pretty big knowledge about rockabilly music theory not to be able to pick up something new. If you’re an intermediate or advanced player, this book is probably not for you. I thought it was a great idea and recorded them right away in the same studio where I record my albums. I converted the session into a 4 minute 43 seconds mp3 file. Got the a-form moving around nicely and it’s really given me a great starting point into a Rockin style. Great that it gives you all the tools to improvise within the genre without just recanting ‘rock this town'”. I just wanted to take the opportunity to let you know that this is the best and most useful guitar instruction book I have ever bought.
Thanks a million for such a great resource. I am starting to play like I have always wanted to. WOW I just wanted to say thanks for such a great e-book, Vince! When it comes to rockabilly there isn’t much in the way of learning materials and your e-book fills the bill nicely, I would love to see a more advanced part 2 someday!
