“Rockin’ the Rock” creates a partnership with its backing track to demonstrate the simplicity of many rock and pop melodies. The complexities are found in the arrangements and the ideas of the soloist. The blues evolved into R&B, which became the foundation for rock n’ roll and its hundreds of off-shoots. Bowed string players are best recognized in this style when playing amplified instruments through special effects. The audio track provides an opportunity to explore soloing in this style.
