You can also find me on the following websites:
Here are some great music tuition books that I recommend (all of which I own and have used personally or with students):
Justin Guitar Songbooks
I own a lot of Justin Sandercoe’s books and especially like his ‘Songbooks’ series. They have a great selection of songs most importantly, but also give you lots of the subtle details on rhythm, strumming etc. that you’ll need to sound like the real tune.
Guitar Aerobics – Troy Grady
A very ambitious and well structured book. It contains a whole year’s worth of guitar exercises that take you from beginner level (probably not complete beginner though) up to very advanced virtuosic guitar. If you manage it all in a year, then well done!
Rockschool Music Production Grade 1
A really well structured grade syllabus for music production that is also highly flexible to whichever DAW you use (DAW is short for Digital Audio Workstation – i.e. music recording software).
