Guitar Techniques August 2011 (#194)
Sep 12 2014
Take the UK’s foremost guitar teachers and players, and transfer their finesse and passion for music into a magazine! The magazine has established itself with guitarists who wish to better themselves as musicians in both the UK, Europe and as far afield as the USA and Hong Kong! When it comes to choosing music, GT’s Abba to Zappa policy means that there’s always something for everyone! We take pride in providing the most accurate transcriptions around, and cover a full range of styles. Every month we feature full transcriptions of guitar songs and intrumentals in every genre, from blues and rock, to acoustic and jazz. All the music in the magazine is included on a cover-mounted audio CD, complete with backing tracks and video master class to let readers play along.

- 20 Slide licks You Have To Know! Who doesn’t want to play this most evocative of blues guitar styles? We know we do! Let Jon Bishop turn you into a bottleneck beast!

- Toto – Hold The Line. Steve Allsworth tabs this brilliant slice of raunchy US rock with a cracking Steve Lukather solo. We even tab the piano intro!
