Guitar Techniques September 2012 (#208)

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.

  • Stevie Ray Vaughan – Mary Had A Little Lamb. Learn this fabulous track from Stevie’s still fabulous album Texas Flood. All the rhythm and lead licks fully tabbed by Steve Allsworth.

  • Erik Satie Gnossienne No. 1. You might not know the name but you’ll almost certainly recognise the piece – tabbed beautifully as always by Bridget Mermikides.
