This book identifies 30 distinct guitar riff types, and goes on to illustrate them with 150 inspired examples, examining how they have been developed and used by great rock musicians from Cream and The Beatles, through Nirvana and Soundgarden, to Metallica, Limp Bizkit, The Strokes and The White Stripes. The first half of the book analyzes classic rock riffs and reveals the stories behind their creation, supported by illustrations and a 30-track CD of audio examples. The second section shows how to construct great riffs. Readers learn how to shape a melody, integrate a guitar riff with the rest of a song, enhance it with effects, and work with intervals and scales. Includes an exclusive interview with Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones.
