Ordering from the justinguitar store (we use PayPal)

• You do not need an account to use PayPal, you can pay using all major debit and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Amex etc), though personally I find PayPal easiest and most secure.

• 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!

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!

Song playlists

Few people have sorted out "playlists" for all the songs so you can listen to them:

Spotify- Beginners, IntermediateIntermediate PlusFull 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!!
