This Guitar book includes: Pieces that are suitable for all exam boards Ten songs from a range of genres and styles with differing difficulties that are appropriate for GCSE level A CD accompaniment of professionally recorded backing tracks, so you can hear how each song should sound.  A great selection of songs is included in this book, with some old favourites, some contemporary classics, and tunes that will work really well on acoustic or electric Guitars. Featuring Don't Look Back In Anger  by Oasis, Back In Black  by AC/DC, Pinball Wizard  by The Who as well as The Pretender  by Foo Fighters, and many more.

Each tune features a useful page of essential information, giving you performance tips and recommended listening.
