The official matching songbook to R.E.M's Greatest Hits album, covering the
Athens, Georgia's finest musical exports, R.E.M, didn't really hit the big
time until their second major label outing, Out Of Time, and followed up
with the international smash Automatic For The People. Their recording career since joining Warners is celebrated in this 18 song collection, which charts their progress from jangly indie obscurists to stadium-filling rock behemoths. Guitarists will find much to study in Peter Buck's parts, which are all authentically transcribed in this book, from the simple arpeggio picking of 'Everybody Hurts' through to the politicised riffing of 'Orange Crush'.
All the transcriptions in this book have been checked by an experienced editor and are guaranteed to be accurate. Also features an 8-page colour section; song by song notes by Peter Buck; includes two new songs, 'Animal' and 'Bad Day' and chord boxes for every song.
