This "96 Page Mammoth" edition teaches Straight 8th, Basic Shuffle, Baion Rhythms and Major & Minor Pentatonic Scales. There is an entire section devoted to Major & Minor Improvisational Patterns including Extended Pentatonic Scales with runs, licks and riffs. Essential Rock Slur Techniques and the "not to be forgotten" Classic Rock Ostinato Patterns are introduced and explained in detail.

Feel the impact of "Chicago Blues" & examine the enormous influence of "Latin Rhythms" in today's Rock & Roll Music.
