Rock Songbook


Description Rock Songbook

This is the perfect songbook for rock guitarists! It features 50 great songs by artists such as AC/DC, Nirvana, Dire Straits, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Oasis and ZZ Top, all presented with playing tips and tutorials. These awesome rock songs sound best on electric guitar - but most will work OK on acoustic as well.

Designed to accompany the JustinGuitar Intermediate Method, this book gives you loads of songs which you’ll love to learn and play, and which will improve your playing as you work through them.

The book’s unique progressive structure divides the songs into four sections:

  • 15 Beginner Songs which mainly use chords covered in the JustinGuitar Beginner’s Course; ideal for players who have been studying on the course or who want to consolidate their knowledge of open chords, power chords and strumming, e.g., ‘Highway To Hell’ by AC/DC.
  • 15 Intermediate Songs introducing barre chords and more complex strumming, e.g., ‘Smoke On The Water’ by Deep Purple. Perfect for the improving player.
  • 15 Intermediate ‘Plus’ Songs which include more difficult chords, strumming, riffs and fingerpicking techniques, e.g., ‘Alive’ by Pearl Jam. The next level!
  • 5 fully tabbed out note-for-note transcriptions including Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ and ‘Sultans Of Swing’ by Dire Straits. Pro-level songs to work your way up to!

All the songs feature full lyrics and chords, with a written lesson and playing advice. Chord boxes, strumming/fingerpicking patterns and sections of TAB are used as necessary to show specific detail. There’s even a handy chord library to show basic open chords and barre chord grips.

Many songs in the book are supported by a free-to-access video tutorials on, so there’s everything you need to learn the songs and develop your skills. This might just be the greatest rock songbook ever published!

Support JustinGuitar

It's likely you will find this book and the rest of my products in other shops, but buying direct from this store means that JustinGuitar sees more of the revenue and helps me maintain, expand and improve the website - and keep guitar education free for those that can't afford to contribute. I really appreciate your support :)

Also available as part of a GREAT VALUE Bundle Pack.
