Product Overview


In this Hal Leonard video tutorial, The Guitar Play-Along video series teaches you to play some of the most epic songs of the '70s - Just watch, listen and learn!

Each song starts with a lesson from a professional guitar teacher, giving you an overview about the song and artist. Lesson

Then the teacher performs the complete song along with professionally recorded backing tracks that include on-screen guitar tab, in both a standard front view View 1 and a helpful "over the shoulder angle" View 2 which gives you the perspective of how it would look when you're playing it.

Lastly, there's a 4th video for each song with tab, that gives a play through without the instructor's guitar, so you can play the part yourself with the professional backing track! Practice

The songs featured in this video tutorial series are some of the most recognizable from the '70s, including Bad Case of Loving You (Robert Palmer), Bang a Gong (Get It On) (T.Rex), Brick House (The Commodores), Funk #49 (James Gang), Josie (Steely Dan), Oye Como Va (Santana), Too Rolling Stoned (Robin Trower), and What's Your Name (Lynyrd Skynyrd).

Get your polyester pants on and learn to play these '70s hits on your guitar fast and easy, and see what made these songs so special!

'70s Classics: Guitar Play-Along is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Nicely done!! Made it really easy to learn even complex pieces, I must say that it moves along a little quickly, but that forces you to focus and keeps you on your toes, no time for daydreaming, but I love this product, some of us need a little kick sometimes..

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very Helpful! Only used for three songs, but really helpful. The video views are nice and easy to see chord changes from a players perspective.
