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 featured in this video tutorial series are some of hard rock's best, including Aqualung, Bark at the Moon, Godzilla, Living After Midnight, My Generation, Seventeen, Turn Up the Radio, and You Really Got Me.

Learn to rock out these epic anthems on your guitar and see why these songs have stood the test off time today!

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from Love the song This is great except for the breakdown is fast for beginners and doesn't breakdown enough and don't think it showed all the leads. It does have tablature though, seems like these are designed for intermediate or advanced players which is great for them love your song choices
