Product Overview


In this Hal Leonard video tutorial, The Guitar Play-Along video series teaches you to play some of the most recognizable acoustic guitar songs ever written, on your guitar, fast and easy - 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 timeless acoustic guitar songs including Across the Universe, Big Yellow Taxi, California Dreamin', Crazy on You, Pink Houses, Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, Wanted Dead or Alive, and Yesterday.

So grab your guitar and learn these staples of acoustic rock today!
