The bass and drum parts may be a bit different in rock, but the progressions are almost identical. Almost every chord progression in this book can be found in any era of rock and blues. Under the chords sample bass lines are included. This book covers almost every style of rock and blues. The accompanying CD contains recordings of all the examples, first with bass and drums, then without bass.
