JustinGuitar.com Vintage Songbook
This awesome songbook features 50 classic guitar songs from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, including hits by artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Simon & Garfunkel, Roy Orbison and James Taylor, all presented with playing tips and tutorials.
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 and strumming, e.g., ‘Take It Easy’ by The Eagles.
- 15 Intermediate Songs introducing barre chords and more complex strumming/picking, e.g., ‘In My Life’ by The Beatles. Perfect for the improving player.
- 15 Intermediate ‘Plus’ Songs which include more difficult chords, strumming, riffs and fingerpicking techniques, e.g., ‘Pinball Wizard’ by The Who. The next level!
- 5 fully tabbed out note-for-note transcriptions including Chuck Berry’s ‘Johnny B. Goode’ and ‘Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers’ by Jeff Beck. 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 JustinGuitar.com, so there’s everything you need to learn the songs and develop your skills. This might just be the greatest pop songbook ever published!
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 :)
