You can buy musical instruments at any number of places, but if you are looking for songs to accompany a musical instrument, your options are a little bit more limited. Many people, when looking for songs for the guitar make the mistake of either relying on their local store and skipping other sources all together, or else doing the exact opposite, and only looking at the music that is offered in their local music shop. Both of these approaches are really quite serious mistakes, if you ask me because you’re missing the very biggest selection of guitar songs, those available online. Search through the pages of our site and you’ll find songs for electric guitars, classical guitars, bass guitar and every other combination, together with a choice of media, be it books, Amazon Kindle or DVD.
Of course, there are a whole lot of other places to look for guitar songs such as local music shops, huge out of town stores or more obscure places such as second-hand stores. All of these give you a chance to look at the goods before buying but with the customer reviews on the online sites, it’s very unlucky to make a buying mistake. You see, you can almost always find stuff for less money if you are willing to get it mail order, and songs for the guitar are no exception.

Homespun and String Letter Press, the publishers of Acoustic Guitar Magazine, have joined forces to create a DVD version of String Letter's best-selling guitar instruction book. This clearly organized, carefully graded set of lessons by popular guitarist and author David Hamburger teaches beginners to play guitar using the techniques and songs of American roots music. DVD 1 covers all the basic chords and flatpicking techniques; DVD 2 gives you a solid start on fingerpicking along with more advanced flatpicking styles. David gives total beginners a great start as he teaches you how to tune up, use the capo, play bass runs, vary your strumming patterns and form all the most important chords and chord progressions. DVD 2 continues on an intermediate level, giving those with some previous guitar experience a solid start with fingerpicking and an introduction to more advanced flatpicking styles, including scales and single note playing. Throughout the lessons you’ll learn to play more than two-dozen classic songs drawn from blues, folk, country and bluegrass traditions, including Careless Love, Columbus Stockade, Darling Corey, In the Pines, Scarborough Fair, Man of Constant Sorrow, Stagolee, Hot Corn Cold Corn, East Virginia, House of the Rising Sun, Banks of the Ohio, The Crawdad Song, The Girl I Left Behind Me, Gambler’s Blues and many others. Bonus: A four-song play-along session with guitarists Happy Traum and David Hamburger gives you a chance to practice your newly learned flatpicking instrumentals.
