Rock On Wood vol. 1

guitar teaching book with DVD-Rom
by Peter Autschbach
For beginners and classical players. The new guitar method for everyone who wants to authentically play rock music on acoustic guitar. On the basis of many examples and well-known songs by AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and much more aspiring young rockers learn to play acoustic rock guitar professionally. Important techniques such as Palm Mute, hammer-on, pull-off and slide are explained with motivating exercises and songs. The material is didactically carefully processed and incorporated into a teaching method for the modern music school work, which shows new ways beyond classical music. Like Autschbach's highly successful Guitar book Let's Rock, Rock on Wood is aimed at acoustic guitar starters and people who played classical guitar before.

Vol. 1 with songs by:

  • AC/DC: TNT, Ride On
  • Iron Maiden: Fear Of The Dark
  • Black Sabbath: Paranoid
  • Pink: Please Don‘t Leave Me
  • Stevie Wonder: Cause We‘ve Ended As Lovers

The new guitar method for everyone who wants to authentically play rock music on acoustic guitar. The 2nd volume deepens the playing techniques taught in Vol. 1. The focus is on classic rock songs like Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd), Behind Blue Eyes (The Who) or Nights In White Satin (The Moody Blues). Systematically, techniques like arpeggio, bending, slide, double stops or trill are developed to make the student be able to play the songs in the right style. In the "Show Offs" the songs are presented in arrangements for two or more guitars. A detailed chapter dealing with blues improvisation and examples and lots of fingerpicking add a big plus to this volume.

Vol. 2 with songs by:

  • The Who: Behind Blue Eyes, Pinball Wizard
  • Kansas: Dust In The Wind
  • The Moody Blues: Nights In White Satin
  • Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here
