The return of a well-regarded sight reading book

Don't Be Afraid Of The Neck was last reprinted in 2004 after the first editions sold out very quickly. It was praised for its presentation as well as its serious usefulness and fun qualities. This download is an exact copy of that reprint.

Mandolin download

Dozen of tunes for mandolin in all sorts of styles with treble clef and tablature notation. Also some chords, scales and arpeggios. Plenty of easy tunes and some material that will seem pretty impressive!
If you like this, maybe Al & Ray could supply something similar for Dobro, banjo, Weissenborn, ukulele......

new blues guitar download

23 pages of 12-bar blues grooves and turnarounds etc, with a demo solo and some scales for good measure, all carefully considered and put together in a progressive order. The favourite keys are covered in various styles, giving you some good and typical blues rhythm 'vamps' to accompany 12-bar blues. For teachers it offers good lesson material presented in a logical order. This material has been tried and tested with many students over many years by experienced Registered Guitar Tutors.

Ozark 12-string guitars:

we are so pleased with the quality of these guitars that we bought one for ourselves - there are two more in stock. At £275 with a fitted hard case, this is quite a bargain.  Once these two have sold, there won't be any more - certainly not at this price.
Visit GandA Music at 8A Chinns Court between 10am & 4pm on a Thursday or call 01985 211786.

Music shop in Warminster

Since our friends at Acre Music closed for business, 8A Chinns Court in Warminster began hosting a music shop open to the public on one day a week from Spring this year.
GandA Music has been supplying music bits & pieces, including strings, sheet music and instruments, for 20 years.  Although this has been mainly a specialist operation for music teachers and other professionals, the service now includes restringing & other basic set-ups.  It is open from 10am to 4pm every Thursday, & also by appointment. See for a few more details.
