Here's an hour-long guitar walkthrough for the Nova Scotian folksong "Tie Me Down" by Allister MacGillivray.
Here's a solo guitar arrangement of "In My Life" by The Beatles. I performed it at my sister's wedding and it went over pretty well!

It was really easy to learn songs when being taught by ben, the instructions he gave lives are extrémalo clear and he makes you feel like a pro guitar artist even though you probably been playing your instrument for only a week.
