Rock Out With Yamaha Premium Styles!

Rock Music was born out of the Rock and Roll music of the 40's and 50's, initially combining the influence of rhythm and blues and country music, and later expanding to the vast sub-genres we know today. In the beginning, Rock was based around the electric guitar, with basic 4/4 time and verse-chorus-verse-chorus song structure, but the evolution of the Rock genre expanded the sound to include keyboards, organs, synthesizers, and nearly anything that produces melodic sound.

Entire books have been written about the history of Rock, so I won't try to sum up over 50 years of music in one little blog article. I will say that whether you're a fan of piano ballads, guitar solos, big horns, groovy bass, or raucous drums; Rock Music has something to satisfy your taste. This week we're featuring a collection of our best Premium Style Files for Rock Music. We have great Rock Styles from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and today!
