Over a year in the making Laurence Juber hasn't just done guitaristic arrangements of these masterpieces of pop music but spent months working up versions he feels comfortable playing out as part of his shows. Juber himself transcribed all these tunes for accuracy and has personally created a lesson CD to help guide you through...he is currently finishing a LISTENING CD...tentatively called "Pop Goes Guitar" which will give guitarists full listens to the arrangements and pop music lovers reasons to love guitar...and guitarists!
a REVIEW from a customer...
This latest LJ lesson instructional book, Popular Songs for
Solo Guitar is exactly what I have been wanting. As a solo guitarist,
one of the things I enjoy most is playing for people and people
really respond to tunes that they know. So having all of these
magnificent arrangements will provide hours and hours in the learning
and the playing of these songs. Not only are there a great variety of
songs, but the fact that there are a number of different tunings will
expand my musical knowledge as well as develop my skills.....PS / Los Angeles CA
THERE IS A LISTENING CD companion for this book now available by Laurence Juber called "POP goes GUITAR" please see his CD section to order..it contains all the full versions of the songs taught in this book and is also a great CD for non guitarists and a perfect GIFT item!
