Songs for progressing guitar players...
Once you are beyond Beginner level and want to progress it can be a little daunting, so many things to learn and explore. In my "Progressing" series of songbooks I hope to bring you some structure to learning a whole bunch of awesome songs. From my experinece, after the beginner stages, guitarists get a little more selective about what they want to learn, so I am releasing a series of books in different styles that forfill the same perpose. All the songs from these books will apprear on this page!
The first book in this series released was the Justinguitar Acoustic Songbook, which as the titles suggests, contains songs that work great on acoustic guitar (but of course you can play them just as well on elelctric guitar!). The Justinguitar Pop Songbook is out too and is full of poptastic hits from the last couple of decades. Rock Songbook is next in line, I have started work on it, I suspect it'll be out in May/June. Following that will be the Vintage Songbook (hits from the 50's, 60's and 70's) and then the Australian Songbook which will cover all the classic Aussie music I grew up with (Chisel, Angels, Diesel etc.). Hope you dig them!
