Bill Piburn – Groovy Guitar

Groovy Guitar – 15 Classic 60s Songs. The “Groovy” in the title refers to the period of the sixties and to the grooves laid down-especially the swinging, walking bass lines running through some of the tunes(“Daydream”,”Spooky”,”Mellow Yellow” and “Happy Together”).

The author plays them on a nylon string but they translate well to steel strings. These arrangements are classy, idiomatic and make the guitar sound really good. I find that Bill Piburn’s arrangements are playable...
