A Note For Beginners/Intermediate Players

Beginner and intermediate guitarist may have trouble playing  parts to many of these songs.  Don’t let that stop you from learning them. There are plenty easy parts to go around, too. You might not be able to nail the guitar solo to “Stairway To Heaven”, but I’ll bet you can get some of the rhythm guitar parts down.

Don’t just play the easy parts.  Play through the hard parts, too. It’s okay if it sounds bad. It’s all part of the learning process!
