Overview

In Guitar Facts, you will discover the guitar in all of its glory. Organized alphabetically in an easy-to-use A-Z format, this lively, fully illustrated, comprehensive guide consists of authoritative entries, each one within a theme allowing the reader to trace an area of particular interest - whether musical styles, manufacturers, people or guitar models - using extensive cross-referencing. Burning to get the skinny on the electric sitar? Alongside a photo of the instrument, you'll read about when it was developed, and who played it. Need to know the essential structure of an RandB riff? The notation is provided for a shuffle rhythm, a straight-eights rhythm, and more. Looking for some background on the artistry of Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi? You'll find it here, including an action photo and lineup of their key albums. Designed in a handsome 7x9 illustrated format, Guitar Facts belongs in the library of everyone who plays guitar and everyone who loves the instrument. Full-color illustrations throughout. Joe Bennett, former deputy editor of Total Guitar magazine, led the team of seven experts who compiled this volume. His writing on music has appeared on the music technology website sonicstate.com, and he has belonged to several college music faculties. He lives in Bath, England.
