Anthologies & Collections Guitar Tablature

Can you remember what inspired you to play the guitar? We all have our own influences - for some, it was hearing Jimmy Page's solo on "Stairway To Heaven". For others, it was seeing Angus Young's live rendition of "Let There Be Rock" for the first time, or listening to Pete Townshend's hard-hitting power chords on the "Who's Next" album. Whatever inspires you to play, you'll find it in today's line of anthologies and collections of guitar tablature. Just look through this section and you'll find guitar tab books for everything from The Beatles and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Lynard Skynyrd, Eric Clapton and Eddie Van Halen.

When we say that this selection of guitar tab anthologies and collections is seemingly endless, that isn't an exaggeration; you really could spend all day browsing these pages. In fact, taking a tour through this catalog is like walking through a museum of the all-time greatest shredders and strummers. Want to learn easy tabs for your favorite Black Sabbath songs? Look no further than the Hal Leonard The Essential Black Sabbath Easy Guitar Tab Songbook. Dig The Black Keys?

And your choices certainly don't end there. Even surf instrumentalist enthusiasts can hone their skills with books like Creative Concepts The Ventures Pipeline Guitar Tab Songbook, which features 25 surf/rock hits for aspiring solo performers. Even classical guitarists have options, including the top-selling Alfred Pumping Nylon in Tab Book.

You'll learn Tarrega arpeggio studies, original compositions by Andrew York and Brian Head, and musical examples by Bach and Turina, amongst others.

Whether you've just picked up the guitar yesterday or have been playing for years, you'll be blown away by how many anthologies and collections of guitar tablature there are to choose from. And remember, the greatest guitarists are the most diverse ones, so don't feel like you have to settle for only one tab book.
