Lesson Pack Tabs Volume 9

These 8 tabs (28 pages) accompany the lesson video's (229 minutes) of the songs listed below.  With the tabs in hand you'll learn these songs much faster and easier.

Cost of this pack of 8 tabs  : only €12.50

That's really cheap if you imagine what you would pay a teacher for all this material.

I teach according the tab in front of me.  All songs are  transcribed so you can play a full arrangement with intro/outro and guitarsolo's.  I also pay special attention to the vocals, you'll know exactly when and where to sing.  Lyrics are provided and mostly written under the tab.

To order : click on "buy now" and you are directed to Paypal to complete the payment.  Paypal will notify me and then Tabs/pdf's and eventual links to lesson video's are sent by me personally to your Paypal email address.

(or any other email address, if you let me know).
This may take a few hours as I live in Europe.


So tabs are not sent automatically, neither by snail mail, neither as downloadable links etc.
