AC/DC made easy

Guitarists keen to brush up on their Malcolm and Angus Young should definitely check out the Riffology Of AC/DC book from Wise Publications. Ditching the ‘learn a whole song’ approach in favour of a breakneck tour through the AC/DC back catalogue of monster riffs, it makes up for a lack of comprehensive detail with plenty of riff-specific advice, and useful hints and tips for beginner and intermediate guitarists.

So if you’re partial to an AC/DC riff or two – and who isn’t – this will be a godsend for people who just can’t get on with the usual dry training resources out there. And while it may not ultimately be a substitute for learning whole songs, solos ’n’ all, it’s great fun.
