"No doubt about it, these players are masters of hard-rocking guitar - the heavyweight champions of arena-shaking sounds. Their greatness comes in part from their technical skill and their ability to infuse blues, metal, and even pop flavors into simple three-chord progressions. But most of all, it's their commitment - their fervent ability to go for it - that has made them guitar gods. Depending on your attitude, these guys can motivate you to pack it up or rip it up. Why not go for it?" "The Way They Play - The Hard Rock Masters explores the work of these guitar czars. You'll discover their stylistic secrets, learn how they played their most famous riffs, and find out how each created his unique sound. The accompanying CD walks you note-by-note through licks that characterize their styles, played with their signature tones."--BOOK JACKET.
