This is the latest collection in this series of attractive, easy, fun-to-play piano pieces. Rock music has been at the heart of popular culture for over half a century, though its roots lie in the Gospel music and Rhythm and Blues of decades earlier. The styles in this collection represent mainly the middle, high point of its popularity, from those artists, soloists, composers and groups who have been proved durable and whose music has become the new "standards".
- Styles and tempos vary to give a mix of rock and ballad styles
- Mostly in 4-time, but using both 8- and 16-beat figures and styles
- All employ 'straight' quavers and present challenging rhythms
- Many are based on left-hand bass lines and ostinatos.
