Guitar Techniques March 2013 (#214)

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 instrumentals 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.

Guitar Techniques March 2013 (#214) contents:

  • Gary Moore & Roy Buchanan – The Messiah Will Come Again. We’ve made our own version of this fabulous ballad by Roy and Gary by combining the best bits of both performances. It’s a cracker!
  • Amaze with Arpeggios! In many different styles. Sometimes we get too bogged down with scales and ignore the power of chord tones. Jacob Quistgaard’s great lesson sets us right.
  • Django Reinhardt – Play like a true Gypsy jazzer! Et voila! John Wheatcroft has created a fantastic original piece for you to play, in the style of this wonderful Belgian musician.
  • Jules Massenet – Meditation. Pop the CD in or tap your iPad link to play this piece and you’ll definitely want to learn it. Another gem from Bridget Mermikides!
