In level 1 we looked at a very broad historical evolution of rock, focusing on the most prominent sounds of each decade. But the list of sub-genres in rock is endless, and in this chapter we're going to look some of the most fun and important ones. And as always, the purpose of this is not to come up a perfect definition of anything, but simply to explore some alternative rock sounds in some fun and authentic examples, so you can see which elements and "flavors" resonate with you.

The first sub-genre we're going to explore is one of my personal favorites: the still very popular country-flavored rock known as "southern rock". This sound was characterized by bands and artists like The Allman Brothers Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others. So in this tutorial we're going to break down and play through an extensive practice tune that uses all the signature elements of this sound. Let's get started!
