Red Hot Chili Peppers - Stadium Arcadium: Special Edition Guitar Book with 2 CDs (Guitar Recorded Versions)
(Guitar Recorded Versions). This first-of-its-kind publication allows you to hear John Frusciante's guitar tracks and Flea's bass tracks like never before! According to the All Music Guide, "The string instruments are the reason to listen to Stadium Arcadium ... they push and pull, rave and rumble, lie back and rock out." The CDs isolate the guitar and bass tracks from the original recording, so you can listen as you learn from the music in the book. This special edition is the brainchild of John Frusciante, and he personally approved all parts of it. All 28 songs are included from this groundbreaking two-disc release, the Peppers' first album to debut at #1 on the Billboard charts. Songs include: Dani California * Hard to Concentrate * If * Snow (Hey Oh) * Stadium Arcadium * Tell Me Baby * Wet Sand * and more. 2007 Grammy Winner for Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance!
One of the best songbooks ever...

This is a fantastic concept, executed nearly perfectly. Not only are the guitar tabs spot-on accurate (at least as I can tell), but the isolated guitar/bass CD tracks are very revealing. I don't even count myself as a Chili Pepper fanatic. However, Frusciante is easily one of my favorite contemporary guitarists. Stadium Arcadium may not be the Chilis' best record, but it demonstrates nearly every style and technique that Frusciante is known for. When you break down the guitar parts, it's surprising how simple his style is, though Frusciante is a master of layered guitar tracks (which the included CD's really help demonstrate). I can't play many of the riffs and leads as fast as the recorded versions, but they make terrific exercises and ideas for scale and lead practice. The CD's themselves are even a worthwhile listen if you're interested in recording and mixing. If you're a guitar-playin' Chili Pepper nut, this is a no-brainer of comsmic dimensions.
This special edition includes CD's with John and Flea's isolated guitar and bass parts. It makes hearing what you're supposed to play easy to learn, and easy to follow along with the book without the distraction of the vocals or drums. Thanks Mr. Frusciante for thinking of us guitar players and what we want!
