Joe Bonamassa Concerts

Just heard that one of my favourite blues guitarists, Joe Bonamassa is going to be doing a national tour this year. For info about tickets click here

Should be good and must get my tickets sorted out sooner rather than later. I tend to leave things to the last minute, but these tickets are not to be missed. Will no doubt play quite a lot from his new album “Different Shades of Blue” as well as a lot of stuff from his back catalogue. Really looking forward to it.

New guitar tab site

Found this guitar tab site called Metal Tab World that is good for beginners. So may tab sites just have so many songs to trawl through for what you want. This little site just focusses on some of the great classic metal bands and tracks.


Play Thunderstruck

AC/DC are one of the best known bands in the world and I think had a great boost in recent years by their music featuring in the Iron Man movie.

Check out the video below for Thunderstruck:-


If you would like to play like Angus Young, try this video lesson, or this one too.


Play like Jimmy Page

Probably one of the most famous rock songs ever – try here. It was probably one of the fist rock songs that I learned to play on guitar when I was a teenager. there was a movie I remember seeing- I think it was the Blues Brothers and in the store there is a sign saying ‘No Stairway To Heaven’. Wonder how many times music shop owners have had to listen to a kid trying to play it in their store.

If you would like to learn to play the song, there are online lessons over here

Another of my favourite Led Zepplin tracks is Kashmir which you can find here

Also you might want to try this page for more Led Zeppelin guitar lessons.

Jimmy Page was such a great rock guitar player, but what he perhaps isn’t recognised as much is that he was also a great blues player, and so many of the riffs that he came up with had their roots in the blues.

There are quite a number of large guitar tabs sites out there, but one of the problems is that they are so large you need to plough through tons of tabs to find the one you are looking for. I recently discovered a small site that only focuses on big bands and takes to straight to the tab you need. Click here for the website
