The Guitar and Rock Equipment is a lively, comprehensive introduction to the instrument, its development, and its greatest exponents in rock and pop. It offers a wide range of basic information and practical guidance aimed at budding guitarists, but will also appeal to more knowledgeable music fans, who will value it as an authoritative, concise reference book. The book is divided into four sections. The first section provides descriptions and photographs of the most popular and influential acoustic and electric designs of the last 50 years. It includes a detailed overview of these instruments and focuses on important models in each category. Section 2 features biographies of some of the greatest guitarists of the last half-century and Section 3 examines amps and electronics - vital tools for any modern rock player. The types, brands and history of amps, speakers and stomp boxes are all described. The final section is an illustrated step-by-step guide to chords, finger positions and other elementary aspects of acoustic and electric guitar technique.
