For many adults, playing guitar is a long-time dream that is routinely put aside for more pressing concerns. After all, what's more important, dusting off that old Martin in your attic or getting your kids to the dentist on time? But our personal dreams can't be put aside forever, and true believers will never stop chasing them. So, if you've been wanting to get a good start at rock guitar for a long time and you've decided that you're finally going to do it, this book is for you.

There are two appendices at the back of this book. Appendix A on page 88 is a quick review of reading music. Appendix B on page 92 is a basic theory lesson. Reading the appendices before going through the book will be very helpful.

I grew up on the music of Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, The Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, The Grateful Dead and all of those other great bands we've come to know and love. Rock music has always impressed me as being a unique art in that it lovingly embraces everything it touches. It's hardly an exclusive club. After all, where else can one find The London Philharmonic Orchestra, Sid Vicious, Indian sitar music, blues, jazz, funk and sheer noise all in the same "style"?

Rock music is a bigger part of modern culture than many people would care to admit. It keeps our laborers pumping through long hard days, increasing productivity and melting away those tedious hours. It's a big part of kicking back on the weekends and enjoying down time with our friends. It makes the old feel younger and helps the young to feel strong and alive. But, most importantly, its study is endlessly challenging and stimulating, and can be a true path to self-discovery. I hope this book helps to make your rock'n'roll dreams come true. Rock on!
