Product Overview


In this Hal Leonard video tutorial, The Guitar Play-Along video series teaches you to play some of the best alternative rock hits ever written - 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 alt rock's best, including Buddy Holly (Weezer), I'll Stick Around (Foo Fighters), Jane Says (Janes Addiction), Lithium (Nirvana), Name (Goo Goo Dolls), No Rain (Blind Mellon), Rape Me (Nirvana), and Say It Ain't So (Weezer).
