Not about rhythm guitar technique - and a matter of taste whether you like the riffs.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rhythm Riffs: Over 200 Riffs in All Styles [With CD (Audio)] (Hal Leonard Guitar Method (Songbooks)) (Paperback)
Like another reviewer, I bought the book in the belief, from its title, that it is about rhythm guitar technique - I should have investigated more carefully, I guess.
Some samples are played with quite a high distortion level - ok if it's your taste, but it makes it a bit more difficult to hear note-for-note what is being played - and it grates a bit if you don't like heavy distortion.
Biggest drawback for me was that I found I simply did not like the riffs - many of them sound to me like odd bits and pieces pasted together and I did not find any that I yearned to play. A matter of taste, I suppose, but on the assumption that other potential readers might have a similar reaction, I can't give a strong recommendation to the book.
