Ueberschall Rock Classics ELASTiK | 4.85 Gb

Ueberschall's Elastik library "Rock Classics" is the result of a months-lasting, intense production. Its 20 construction kits offer professionally recorded drums, bass and guitars in up to seven different parts. Each construction kit's part is available in two variations to multiply the number of possible combinations. All tracks have been recorded using an analogue mixing console and an analogue multitrack to create a truly authentic sound. Also, all guitars have been recording using real amplifiers - no emulations, no exceptions! The abstinence of plug-ins of any kind has led to a production that is exceptionally warm and punchy. Sound wise, Rock Classics is head to head with the classics in rock history.

"How the Beatles Destroyed Rock n Roll: An Alternative History of American Popular Music" by Elijah Wald
Охfоrd University Press | 2009 | ISBN: 0195341546 9780195341546 9780199712137 | 336 pages | PDF/epub/mobi | 1 MB

This book rejects the conventional pieties of mainstream jazz and rock history. Rather than concentrating on those traditionally favored styles, the book traces the evolution of popular music through developing tastes, trends and technologies–including the role of records, radio, jukeboxes and television –to give a fuller, more balanced account of the broad variety of music that captivated listeners over the course of the twentieth century. Written with verve and style, How the Beatles Destroyed Rock 'n' Roll shakes up our staid notions of music history and helps us hear American popular music with new ears.

Legs Diamond's second album, and second of 1977, A Diamond Is a Hard Rock, polished many rough edges off of their eponymous debut's inconsistent songwriting, but it did nothing to assuage the band's raging bout of musical split-personality disorder; a virtually unparalleled case in the annals of rock history that saw half their songs confined to frugal hard rock, while the other half drove over the cliff of scholarly, progressive rock indulgence.

A Practical Guide to Rock Microstructure by Ron H. Vernon

Rock microstructures provide clues for the interpretation of rock history. A good understanding of the physical or structural relationships of minerals and rocks is essential for making the most of more detailed chemical and isotopic analyses of minerals. Ron Vernon discusses the basic processes responsible for the wide variety of microstructures in igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic and deformed rocks, using high-quality colour illustrations.

Genre: Guitar lessons

Jazz vibraphonist Gary Burton and Larry Coryell collaborated on Duster back in ’67 evoking wider use of the term ‘jazz rock’ and stimulating broader appreciation for what was then a very fresh-sounding new genre that fused jazz and rock. Coryell can certainly be credited with attracting guitarists from both sides of the fence to the jazz rock scene but Miles Davis’ highly improvisational Bitches Brew with John McLaughlin (recorded in ’69) blew minds and made jazz rock history. Listen carefully and you can hear Miles snapping fingers to set tempos, assigning solos to players and whispering direction such as, “Keep it tight.”
