Rock and Roll

Everybody dreams of playing rock guitarthe screaming fans! The flashing lights! The Spandex pants!

Todays rock is the mainstream American music, embracing so many genres that its impossible to speak of a single guitar style. If rock means anything at all, it means a guitar-driven music as opposed to the piano- and wind-instrument-based pop of an earlier generation. Mention a rock guitarist and youll probably visualize a heavy-metal maniac, full of screaming guitar licks and extravagant stage moves. But rock also produces anti-virtuosos who react against the musical show-offs by using deliberately simple guitar styles.

In view of the many ways rock guitar has branched out, its fascinating to go back to its roots in fifties rock and rockabilly. Lets make rockabilly our introduction to rock guitarwith the extra advantage that it will sound good on acoustic as well as electric guitar. In this chapter, well learn a basic rockabilly/boogie accompaniment pattern, how to craft a rock-style solo, and then put it all together for a blazing rock workout!
