  1. NME Radio ·
    Excellent music and On-line Radio site - one of the best on the Internet. The news is updated throughout the day, the gig guide is top rate, and if you're looking for a bass player with two heads and pink and green hair in Lower Osaldtwistle thi...(more)

  2. Music Choice ·
    Once upon a time, this had some great options, but it has been revamped recently and the Blues Channel has gone. This takes away any point in even looking at the channel. There is a second Music Choice channel (Sattelite channel 481) with anothe...(more)

  3. Rotosound ·
    Where this site stands out is in the response you get. I live in Germany, have used Rotosound Strings for 20 years and cannot get them in Germany. Normally, the "Contact Us" button on a Website leads your message into a black hole, in which it i...(more)

  4. Guitar Music of Spain, Vol. 1 by John Zaradin ·
    Surprisingly, this book contains a lot of traditional Spanish Guitar pieces - there's no Fernando Sor or Gaspar Sanz in here. That said, you have to be able to follow the score - there is no Tab and no CD - so if you can't read the dots you're g...(more)

  5. Classic Guitar Collection, Vol. 1 by Harvey Vinson ·
    Volume one of three. Contains a lot of simple studies and preludes, along with the occasional gem. Well worth buying but it won't provide a complete concert repertoire.

  6. Classic Guitar Collection, Vol. 2 by Harvey Vinson ·
    Volume two of a three volume set, and it's more of the same - which is a great pity. Lots of Preludes and short Studies and some not too complicated dances. There's no Tab - so you have to be able to read the dots. Advanced players will find Bac...(more)

  7. Classic Guitar Collection, Vol. 3 by Leonid Bolotine ·
    Volume three of a set of three. Once again, there's no Tab here so if you can't read the dots you're going to struggle. This book is a filler - forget it. Only buy it if having the full set is important to you. Apart from Bach's famous Minuet (a...(more)

  8. Guitar Music Of Spain, Vol. 2 by John Zaradin ·
    This is a colection of work by Isaac Albeniz, and includes all the great pieces you would expect. There's no Tab, so if you can't read the dots you're going to struggle. The book is an excellent collection if you haven't got it and want to play ...(more)
