‘Total Guitar’, as the name might suggest, is a magazine aimed at guitarists of all ages and various styles. It features news of general goings-on in the guitar world, reviews of albums and equipment, as well as tabs and chords of various songs, (for anyone who doesn’t know a ‘tab’ or ‘tablature’ is a means of showing which notes need to be played on a guitar, enabling the reader to learn the piece without necessarily being able to read standard notions, or ‘sheet music’). It also features lessons to try and help develop your playing skills. It is published monthly and costs £4.99, which is pretty much the typical price of a magazine of this nature and comes ...

Total guitar is a magazine that is published in the UK that focuses on guitar tuition and news. It appeals to all levels and styles and is comprehensive and is up to date on the latest news in the guitar world. As a fan of heavy metal and somebody that has been playing guitar for 2-3 hours a day for about 4 years of my life Total Guitar has been with me every step of the way. I have been a subscriber now for about 3 yeas and get it through my door every month. The news section, which has gear previews and up and coming bands in it is always fairly up to date, though I can't say anything I have read in it, I haven't been able to find on the ...

A Guide To 'Total Guitar Monthly Magazine' (with CD) - from an experienced guitarist's viewpoint. Total Guitar is one of the premiere guitar magazines, and is aimed squarely at guitar players (rather than just folks who like guitar music). A cd is always included with each copy -which adds to the appeal greatly. The magazine is a mixture of interviews with famous guitarists, reviews of new (and sometimes vintage) guitars/ amps/ pedals etc, adverts (generally useful ones -or at least fun to read/ drool over), album/ track reviews (including readers own music that they send in), and most importantly... and this is why most folks buy it... guitar tabs ...

Total Guitar magazine is totally awesome, and one of the few magazines out there that I'd say is not a waste of good trees. I have purchased this magazine regularly since I have started playing guitar about 6 months ago and I cannot deny that it has been a great help to me in so many ways. The magazine is usually priced around £5 which is great value for money as it not only contains informal and educational material for guitarists of all levels but it also makes for entertaining reading material. The magazine includes a lot of in depth yet easy to follow sheet music to learn as well an accompanying CD with each issue which you can use ... Read the complete review

Of all the guitar magazines available, Total Guitar is undoubtably the best. It's one of the few magazines I look forward to coming out each month, each issue having a decent amount of guitar tablature. The magazine works so well because of several reasons: CD - The CD on the cover isn't just full of backing tracks for the tab. There's often full songs from new albums, B-sides (Ash's Cantina Band (Star Wars cover) anyone?) and sometimes an oldie. The main bulk of the CD consists of the tutorial tracks which demonstrate how the magazines tab should sound like when played properly. These tab tracks ar usually broken down into a riff by riff ...
