If you're serious about learning to play the guitar, now you can learn all of the basics and a lot more from the master himself. This title was originally released as a video in 1986 and is now available in book form. You'll have hours of fun playing along with Chet on songs like 'Yesterday', 'Jambalaya', 'Country Roads' and 'New Guitar Blues'.
