Classical Guitar Lesson Book

If you’re looking for a good classical guitar lesson book – then look no farther than Hal Leonard. When I was studying classical guitar performance in high school and college, some of the first classical guitar lesson books my teacher had me buy were Hal Leonard books. Like my collection of 48 classical guitar favorites in standard notation and tab. Includes “BourrĂ©e,” “Greensleeves,” “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” “Menuetto,” “Minuet in G,” “Rondo,” “Sarabande,” and many more.

Here’s a free classical guitar lesson video:

Sometimes you can find a wide variety of used and new Hal Leonard books in auctions:

Billy Gibbons Guitar Lesson: Playing the Blues

YouTube has so many great guitar videos – both performance and lessons. Sometimes you can find all kinds of weird stuff you didn’t even know existed. I think that Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top is one of the most underrated guitar players out there. He is an awesome blues guitar player. I often find that many people don’t know much about ZZ Top other than “Sharp Dressed Man” or “Legs”. Once the 80’s and music videos hit, they put out some songs with sequencer, synthesizer, or keyboard that made them more “commercial”. They had a whole decade of albums before that of incredible blues-rock songs like Tush, LaGrange, Waiting for the Bus, Jesus Just Left Chicago, Just Got Paid, Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers, Tube Snake Boogie, Blue Jean Blues, and lots more. Whether you’ve been playing for a year or all your life – watch this 6 minute video lesson by Billy Gibbons, you just may learn a new lick!
