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 of Dire Straits' tracks note for note and then jam with a professional session band. The track listing reflects some of Dire Straits' 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: "Brothers In Arms", "Sultans Of Swing", "Romeo And Juliet", "Private Investigations", "Telegraph Road", "Money For Nothing", "Walk Of Life" and "Tunnel Of Love".
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.
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.
