What's Inside?

Published 14th July 2022


The acoustic guitar is responsible for so much of the music we know and love today. Take jazz, blues and country: each of these now largely ‘electric’ styles was born on simple flat-top boxes in the hands of unschooled but naturally-gifted innovators. Folk has always been the domain of the acoustic guitar, but has also recently been the well from which so many great advances in playing technique have been drawn. And what about music’s influence on the guitars themselves? OM and 000 styles were born of folk, while two country and western singers’ desire for bigger and flashier boxes gave birth to Gibson’s mighty J-200 and the fabulous Martin D-45.We’ve trawled the Guitar Techniques archives to come up with top lessons in the most popular acoustic guitar styles and have analysed, tabbed and recorded studies of history’s greatest acoustic guitarists. There are also original arrangements of two acoustic classics to learn. Everything is explained clearly by our excellent tutors and each lesson comes with downloadable audio files and animated tab to help you follow along. To get started, simply head over to filesilo.co.uk/bookazines/ plyha3 and download the files. Enjoy!
