The lessons are quite difficult to follow but this should inspire the student; and if it was that easy you would not read the book. As a Water Rat, Weedon was highly active in charity work and fundraising, especially for children and disabled people, and was elected King Rat in 1992. He also worked as a session musician on many early British rock and roll and other records for artists such as Marty Wilde, Tommy Steele, Billy Fury, Adam Faith and Kenny Lynch, and worked as an accompanist to visiting American singers such as Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Nat King Cole.

The introduction to Play in a Day claims that "this book will enable the reader to play the guitar up to a standard suitable for playing in a jazz, skiffle, or dance combination". He liked that the format they used in the book was the same as the charts he saw as a studio musician. The book covers every aspect of jazz, rock and pop arranging, from a basic lead sheet to scoring for full ensemble with voices. I have the book 'Play in a Day' -- which is brilliant in its own right -- but the DVD adds so much as well.B B plays almost exclusively single note runs and reportedly takes a copy of Nicolas Slonimsky's Thesaurus Of Scales And Melodic Patterns with him to practice from. Pete Fisher… yes I had this too, and found out pretty quickly that a day wasn’t enough to get my little fingers around more than a couple of basic chords…remember him (and a handful of other guitarists) having a spot on TV which was more instructive.

This compilation features all his important recordings between 1956-62, notably his original versions of 'Apache' (which of course launched The Shadows' career) and 'Ginchy' (which was popularised in the US by The Ventures).

Packed with tunes from all styles of music for the beginner/intermediate player, and suitable for both electric and acoustic guitar players. Iain Cobby… Was walking on Brighton Palace pier some years ago when I looked up on a raised part of the cafe deck and there he was with his wife sitting enjoying the sun and a cup of tea.

Nursery Rhyme Time presents 31 of the best-loved nursery rhymes, skilfully arranged for the young pianist by Fanny Waterman. Herbert Maurice William 'Bert' Weedon, OBE (10 May 1920 – 20 April 2012) was an English guitarist whose style of playing was popular and influential during the 1950s and 1960s.An essential chord dictionary that every guitarist should have in their gigbag, it contains basic major/minor chords for the beginner through to extended/jazz chords for the advanced player. Pick A Chord follows the ethos of Weedon's hugely influential Play In A Day book and DVD, giving guitarists the tools needed to start playing from day one. Former jazz and danceband guitarist Bert Weedon will always be remembered as the most important and influential British guitarist of all time, for the multi-million-selling guitar tutorial which he'd written and published in 1957, Play In A Day. I'm entirely to blame for my own lack of playing skills, and if the OP was honest they'd accept the mantle of responsibility for one's own actions and inactions too.
