If you liked Bruce Springsteen‘s ‘Wrecking Ball‘ album and his current world tour and were looking for another way to enjoy it, you can now play a musical instrument along with it. Alfred Music Publishing has released the songbook for ‘Wrecking Ball.’

The book contains the standard notation and guitar tablature for all 13 songs found in the ‘Deluxe Edition’ of ‘Wrecking Ball.’ Unsure of the chord changes to ‘We Are Alive?’ They’re all in there. Having trouble with the fingerpicking melody of ‘Shackled and Drawn?’ Not for long. The rap in ‘Rocky Ground’ going too fast for you? It’s got all the lyrics, too.

Also included in the book, which was printed on 100 percent recycled paper, are several pages of artwork. The book lists for $21.99.

Springsteen, who was recently named MusiCares Person of the Year for 2013, remains on tour in Europe. Last night (July 9) in Zurich, he gave tour debuts to three songs, ‘Don’t Look Back,’ ‘Working on a Dream’ and ‘If I Should Fall Behind.’ In the next few days, he will play Prague and Vienna in advance of London’s Hard Rock Calling Festival on Saturday, July 14. Springsteen previously played Hard Rock Calling in 2009.
