5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Song for Blues Guitar
This is the first Amazon review I have ever written.That's how much I love this book!

While this book is not for beginners, I think it's perfect for intermediate to advanced players looking for the full tablature of classic blues songs.The author also identifies which recording of the song he is tabbing.For example, Sweet Home Chicago is from the Blues Brothers version.

If you're an aspiring or accomplished bluesman (or blues-person), get this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Not for Dummies!
This is an excellent compilation of classic blues music covering a broad range of styles. The transcriptions are designed for single guitar allowing the player to express the essence of the song even if the original recording used multiple instruments. The music is appropriate for intermediate to advanced players. My guitar teacher, a professional blues guitarist for 35 years, liked this book well enough to buy a copy for himself! ... Read more

They set out to find J.D. Salinger. In the mid-1970s, hiding out for nearly a decade, J.D. Salinger was already a literary legend, the lost leader and vanished wiseman of millions of readers around the world, from the USA to USSR. An unreachable hero. Or was he? Enter inner-city teacher Greg Herriges, determined to fulfill his dream of meeting and speaking with the reclusive author. Herriges' tale is a double helix narrative of personal quest and romantic love as he and his former girlfriend, both young, big city high school teachers, hit the road one summer Kerouac-style, on a mission to find the hidden giant, discovering America--and themselves--along the way. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A n Emotional Read
This book was a great!!! great!!!read.I have never read any of J.D. Salinger's books.But, I will surely pick up one of his books now.The author's dream of meeting the author, the reason's for this search, the actual journey, the fulfillment, and events leading up to the meetings are so rewarding!!!You will not be disappointed if you pick up this book.I am not a quick reader, but I could not put this book down.
I only wish Mr. Herriges could meet with J.D. now, in 2007 and discuss how his literary skills have changed or have been enhanced since the interview in the 1970's.Thank you Mr. Herriges, for such an enjoyable and passionate read!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars A real page-turner!!!!
This book is as much about the journey as it is about the author's fascination with and devotion to J. D. Salinger.It centers around a young teacher, full of passion for the writer who inspired him at an early age as well as for the lovely lady who accompanies him on his trek to meet with the reclusive J.D. The book is riveting as I got swept up in his escapades and the events which took place on this journey.I read the book in one day, I simply couldn't put it down!Funny, introspective and very entertaining.Mr. Herriges' finest piece to date.A must read!! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
I must say, I first read this book when I ws maybe 10 or 11, and haven't read it again in several years. But I've read this book at least three times and I love it. The writing, though, is very much geared toward younger people. The main character is a 17 year old growing up in the city with his divorced mother. It centers on his very paranoid perception of the city, and he continues to have problems in school. The characters in the book are interesting and differnt- from guidance counselors, to his friends, and his mother. The main character has a sarcastic and ironic sense of humor that I like. ...

One-hit wonder Rudy Keen is talking at last, and what hehas to say about the seedy underside of the rock & roll world of the50's & 60's will shake, rattle and roll the recording industry down toits core, and shock die-hard fans.

But hold the presses for the really big news -- BuddyHolly survived that airplane crash in 1959! This satire on America'slove of conspiracy by the author of Secondary Attachments andSomeplace Safe is Number Eighteen in the Wordcraft Speculative WritersSeries. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars take a pass
An interesting premise for a fiction novel: An invented character with one hit to his credit ends up on tour with Buddy Holly and is Buddy's sidekick. It goes over a cliff when Buddy survives the fatal plane crash of February 3rd 1959 and writes Beatles songs from behind goofy masks. While this is clearly a tongue-in-cheek fiction the humor limps along and the author drags out events; apparently in an attempt to pump up the page count.What starts interesting and promising slowwwly bored this reader to distraction.
Good thing he has a captive readership.

5-0 out of 5 stars So funny I thought I would die!!
Like the other reviewers, I found this book to be so clever and funny that I couldn't help but laugh out loud.On a recent trip to Atlanta, the people on the plane with me must have thought I was crazy.As a music fan and a mystery fan, I found the plot to be totally satisfying.I'm buying this book for all my friends for the holidays.

5-0 out of 5 stars His best yet
Of his three sovels so far, The Winter Dance Party is Herriges' best yet.I read it on a plane trip to California and could not keep from laughing out loud.The character Rudy Keen is as original a post-modern protagonist as your likely to meet, and his method of rewriting rock history by using actual events takes storytelling to a higher level.Definitely recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Blast from the Past
Non-stop rock 'n roll nostalgia! A unique twist on events of the rock 'n roll era that kept me laughing!!A must read! Herriges creates an aura of intrigue that makes you wonder what Rudy will discover next! Outrageous yet...truth is stranger than fiction...Rudy uncovers yet another conspiracy of an age wrought with conspiracy...who would have thought...Rudy did!He bounds ahead in search of the truth...does he find it?Read it and find out!

1-0 out of 5 stars yeah?
i transfered out of harper college awhile back. it is there where i heard a lot about greg herriges. i finally got around to reading the local fiction writer in that area and was dissapointed: lack-luster humor, cliche sentimentality. i heard he likes salinger a lot, and it definity shows that he listened to his creative teacher when he said "copy the greats", but come-on, if i wanted to read salinger at his utmost worst i would pick up a few stories from the uncollected 22. This is the only book that i have read by herriges, i just hope, if i have the courage to get around to it, reading other books by this author will be more beneficial ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
This book is really great. It is exactly what you would hope for. It has tab and standard notation with an explanation of all the guitar tab notations and a list of all the chords in the back. It also has some extra tips on how to play parts of each of the songs. These songs are a little harder than you would think. If you are brand new to playing, this is not the book for you. If you know how to play and you like these songs, then you should definitely get this book!
This book is larger than I had expected. It is about an inch larger length and width than a sheet of printer paper, but this is good because it shows more music on each page.
I really wanted to see this before I bought this book, so here it is for you. I got this list off of another website, but a few of the songs on the list were incorrect, so i fixed the list

3-0 out of 5 stars Maybe for dummies, but not beginners
When I saw the title "Rock Guitar Songs for Dummies" I thought this would be a good book for a beginner.Unfortunately most of the songs in this book are far beyond my skill level as a beginner and the rest are at the upper edge.This book assumes you already know how to play some advanced techniques.It does have a lot of pointers and advice on how to play these techniques, but doesn't have any instruction if they're unfamiliar to you.I'm definitely keeping this book as it has many songs I'd eventually like to learn how to play as my skill level increases, but I'll need to find something else to get me to that point.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rock Guitar Songs for Dummies is All Right Now
This is a great book, even for non-dummies. It would be great if it included a CD, but perhaps that would have been cost prohibitive. If you can collect the albums that these songs are on, you will have a great and diverse rock album collection.

It might not have a CD, but what it does include is sheet music and tablature for 35 classic rock songs. You can learn a few basic chords and strum along, or get deeper into the licks, riffs, and solos. It also includes notes and tips for each song.

For instance, several songs require tuning down a half-step. Kiss, Van Halen, AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, and even Carl Wilson of The Beach Boys favored this "rock tuning." To have this simple technique explained saved me from endless frustration, trying to pick up the songs by ear. Palm muting is another technique this helpful manual explains. And there are ample examples of "5" chords, that have a very big "rock" sound because they lack the third, and all notes are either roots or 5ths. If the theory and explanations go over the heads of any "dummies" they can just play it, and feel the rock and roll!!!!!

Wild Thing, by The Troggs, is a classic but simple song, and one of the easier ones to play--but there are just a few simple tricks, and this book clues you in on the secrets. Sweet Home Alabama and David Bowie's Rebel, Rebel from the Diamond Dogs album are other simple, yet brilliant, songs that are easy to play, once you unlock the secrets. All Right Now, by Free, from Fire and Water, is yet another example of a riff that sounds so cool, but is so easy to play once you see how.

Smoke on the Water, from Machine Head by Deep Purple? Yes, it's here. Brown Eyed Girl, by Van Morrison, from the groovily titled Blowin' Your Mind!? It's here, too. Walk This Way? Ditto. You got your Cream, your Z.Z. Top, your Police, your Rolling Stones, your Stray Cats, your Steppenwolf--you got your Bachman-Turner Overdrive II, too. So, Who's Next? With all the helpful tips, you Won't Get Fooled Again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome book.
If you are looking for a great collection of classic rock songs, this is it. It includes both tab and music and great performance notes to get many of the nuances from the original performers. Many of the songs are very easy to play and you can ramp up the complexity as your playing improves. We used this book to round a out a playlist for a garage band and loved the song selection and format. Just get it.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Resource For Guitarists
I wish that I could have seen just what songs this book had before I bought it. While the songs range from the 60's to the 80's in style, most of the songs aren't my favorite songs although I do like Walk Don't Run (the Ventures), Sunshine of Your Love (Cream), and Won't Be Fooled Again (the Who). The others I could live without.

However, over all this is a very good book to have around for intermediate to advanced guitar players. If you are a beginner I wouldn't quite recommend this book as most of the music is fairly advanced. This shouldn't come as a surprise as the music was written by accomplished rock musicians and played by accomplished rock musicians. The book tries to help by providing notes at the beginning of the book about many of the songs on the techniques involved and how these songs should be played but still, this is not a book for rank amateurs unless someone with more experience is around to help answer a few questions.

But given the short supply of rock music with both standard music notation and tablature, this book is a good resource for a few good songs to learn such as Hit Me With Your Best Shot, I want You To Want Me, Message In A Bottle, The Boys Are Back In Town, Shattered, Born To Be Wild, and others. Also, what would really help this book is a CD of the songs like those found in the Guitar For Dummies and Rock Guitar For Dummies books, but sadly, I guess for contractual reasons, no CD of the songs is offered here although there could be cover versions but we don't even get those. So for lack of a CD and the limited number of hot rock songs, I give this book only four stars. ... Read more
