Product Overview


In this Hal Leonard video tutorial, The Guitar Play-Along video series teaches you to play some of history's biggest hard rock hits - 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 in this video tutorial series feature truly classic guitar riffs and parts, including Bridge of Sighs (Robin Trower), Kid Charlemagne (Steely Dan), The Lemon Song (Led Zeppelin), Mary Jane's Last Dance (Tom Petty), Revolution (The Beatles), Soul Sacrifice (Santana), Susie-Q (Creedence Clearwater Revival), and That Smell (Lynyrd Skynyrd).

Learn to play some of the most recognizable guitar riffs and parts on your guitar today, and see why they will always be classics.

Guitar Classics: Guitar Play-Along is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Product! As usual, this DVD carries on the excellent quality of this series. Yes, there are some lead fills missing before the solo in Kid Charlemagne and a few other places on most tracks, but that’s not what this series is about. It’s about providing an arrangement and backing tracks to allow a guitarist to play the songs by themselves. If there are a few licks and fills missing here and there and you need or want to learn them, try using the rest of the arrangement and solos to help you figure them out by ear. It’s great practice, but it’s also great not to have to do it for the whole song. If that doesn’t work, most of if not all of these songs have excellent full tabs online on Hal Leonard’s website that you can download for a small fee. Overall, great DVD.
