Now you can learn Rock 'n' Roll piano! This great book and CD will add a new and exciting dimension to your piano playing, introducing you to the foot-tapping, infectious style that is Rock 'n' Roll! First learn the rhythmic patterns that top pianists use, and experiment with improvising your own patterns and riffs. Tricks such as arpeggiated triplets, accented chords and repeated chord patterns are explained, as are crushed notes, syncopation, glissandos and rolls. Then play in the style of Fats Domino, Little Richard, Ray Charles, and Floyd Cramer. Useful practice tips are given throughout. The accompanying CD enables you to hear how rock 'n' roll riffs and patterns should sound. Each track is recorded twice, first with the piano, then with backing tracks so you can play the piano part. Suitable for intermediate standard pianists.
