PR-104 • The Justinguitar Pop Songbook
Lot of great guitar playing happens in pop songs... and pop music is (not surprisingly) popular. So if you are looking for some great campfire songs or you want to explore great pop guitar music, then check this out!
The second of my series of five books is the Pop Songbook, 50 awesome hit songs that you can play on acoustic or electric guitar.
Each book contains 50 songs, 15 songs using material covered in The Beginners Course, 15 songs that introduce barre chords (Intermediate Course), 15 songs using other fun concepts (more Intermediate stuff) and 5 full song TABs.
Spiral bound and the same size as The Acoustic Songbook (248 x 170mm), and is 192 Pages.
This book is designed for guitarists moving forward from beginner material and getting into barre chords and riffs.

Ordering from the justinguitar store (we use PayPal)

• Click on the buy now button below for your region: UK, Europe or Rest Of The World. Prices include postage and packing. Please note that only orders over £50 (or foreign equivilent) will get a tracking number, other orders are sent 1st Class but are not trackable. All Bundle Packs are trackable!

• Worried about internet payment security? Please read this guide, the big rule, if you get an email from PayPal telling you there is some problem, it's probably a scam, log into your account typing the website by hand (DO NOT click a link in the email) and you'll soon see if there is a problem. Still Not happy to use paypal?? Here are some other options. But honestly, it's as safe as online shopping gets!

Dimensions are roughly 25cm x 17cm x 1.5cm - the samples below are from the Beginner Songbook, will get from this songbook asap.
I'll be honest, it should be available now as an ebook, it's been formatted for the Apple store and was available for a while, but for some reason it's not there any more. My publishers, Music Sales, are great but have an utterly useless digital team. So sorry, I'm still pushing it but I really don't know when they might get it together.
Video Lessons for the songs
Many of these songs will have video lessons at some point but expect it to take some time!
Few people have sorted out "playlists" for all the songs so you can listen to them - on Spotify Beginners,Intermediate, Intermediate Plus, Full TABs (thanks Onno)... and also on Grooveshark (thanks Maarten).
Answers to common questions...
Can I buy just some of the pages individually?
No, sorry but digital licensing is a nightmare at the best of times, and I really doubt it will happen in the near future, but it's a cool idea.
How is it different from The Beginner's Songbook?
The songs are a little harder. I'm trying to give you songs here to progress players from beginner level, but the first chapter is great for beginners just finishing the course because the songs are just a little more difficult!
Can I buy it digitally?
See eBook above.
Do you ship to XXX?
We ship worldwide. That means everywhere, every continent, wherever you live!!
I know y'all keen to know which songs are included, so I thought I'd just put the whole list up here!!
