Jam With Seventies Rock
The Story
"Jam With Seventies Rock" features superb quality, live recorded backing tracks plus note-for-note transcriptions to eight classics from the '70s from groups such as Steppenwolf, Boston, Joe Walsh and Eric Clapton. The '70s saw the borth of hard rock and heavy metal. Guitar in the '70s was about big riffs and energetic soloing, on the cutting edge of a fresh, new sound, with bands such as The Who, Black Sabbath and Lynurd Skynyrd achieving worldwide acclaim, while redefining rock music as we know it today. This guitar workshop is a powerful learning tool that will help you extend your stockpile of licks and fills and develop your improvisational skills. The combination of musical notation and guitar tabulature in this book together with backing tracks on the CD gives you the opportunity to learn eight classic '70s rock tracks note for note and then jam with a professional session band. The track listing reflects some of the '70s most popular recordings, providing something for guitarists to have fun with and improvise with, as well as something to aspire to.

Features the following tracks: "Paranoid" (Black Sabbath), "Layla" (Eric Clapton), "Free Bird" (Lynyrd Skynyrd), "Sweet Home Alabama" (Lynyrd Skynyrd), "Rocky Mountain Way" (Joe Walsh), "More Than A Feeling" (Boston), "Born To Be Wild" (Steppenwolf) and "Won't Get Fooled Again" (The Who).

The audio content is split across two CDs and separated into two sections: section 1 (CD1) is the backing tracks minus lead guitar & vocals, while section 2 (CD2) is the backing tracks with all guitar parts added, so in addition to the written tab you can hear the rhythm, fills and solos as they should be played! The "JAM WITH..." series allows you to accurately recreate the original, or to use the transcriptions in this book in conjunction with the backing tracks as a basis for your own improvisation.

Additional Facts
From little acorns, oak trees grow. A chance meeting on the sunny island of Lanzarote in 1991 has led to a great musical and business success story. Stuart Bull (one half of Total Accuracy's founding team) was playing guitar to a blues backing track in a tourist bar Kim Waller (the other half of the team, and an aspiring guitarist) watched him perform and was suitably impressed. Later, Kim approached Stuart to make a backing track for his own personal use, which he did. Kim then discovered his playing improved in leaps and bounds. This gave the pair a great idea....

A mere six months after their original meeting, Kim and Stuart formed Total Accuracy. They produced full-band CD backing tracks of original blues and rock styles for guitarists to practice and improvise over. This was later expanded to include classic rock, pop and blues songs, coming complete with full guitar tablature and two versions of each song on the CD. One is complete with the guitar part - to hear what it should sound like - and one professional backing track where the guitar is missing, so you can fill it in.

Total Accuracy has gone on to become the world's best producer of backing track CDs for guitarists, winning awards and becoming the market leader in just eight short years.
