Book Description

This book provides an introduction to the main styles of popular music and their individual forms and techniques. Ranging from Gospel songs and Spirituals to Punk and Funk, Popular Music combines historical background with a practical musical approach. There is a list of suggested music to listen to for each 'period' covered, examples of which are recorded on the accompanying cassette. The book covers the basic work in popular music needed for examination courses and at the same time encourages creativity through inventive assignments.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My main reason for ordering this book was becaue I knew Colin when he was a young boy and just rediscovered recently his prowess as a well repsected guitar player, so perhaps my interest is not what most will be looking for when reviewing this particular product. However, I did find it very interesting and well written and certainly worthwhile for a music enthusiast.
