Play Guitar with AC/DC Paperback – July 1, 1999
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Personally, maybe because I am not in a band yet, I think play alongs are lots of fun. We can jam with our favourite band in our bedrooms and still learn the guitar much more easily, due to the CD and tab combination. I also like to use the backing trackings without the guitar lead to train an improvise my own solos.
This book covers eight famous AC/DC songs, with a full demo first and then a second version of the same track minus the lead guitar. I play along with both versions. I use the first one to follow the lead guitar and get my playing tempo right. I start to play with the second one when I think I am already good enough.
If you give yourself enough time and practice, you can slowly reproduce every bend, vibrato, etc... It's a matter of rewinding the CD and working on it until you are really close. This is a very valuable learning tool in my opinion.
The songs chosen are some of their most famous. You will find "Highway to Hell", "Whole Lotta Rosie", "You Shook me all night long" and "Back in black" among others.
The recordings sound very nice and there is a part at the beginning of the book with tips to reproduce the classical tones for each song. This is a very nice touch too.
All in all, this is an extremely nice play-along, with a great theme(AC/DC) and a CD that has really nice recorded versions. For AC/DC fans this is really, really fun. I am glad I bought this book.
