The Round Guitarist - Book 1

 

I have written my own tutor book and this is used within the my classes and individual lessons where appropriate.  It includes videos on YouTube which accompany each song.  Search The Rounded Guitarist on YouTube for videos.  I also use various other materials including Trinity Pop and Rock, Rock School for pop and rock and Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music for classical.
