Some Guitar Instructional Books I’ve Authored

NEWS FLASH!!! Singer-Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Unveils One-Man-Band ROCK Record on the INTIMATE AUDIO label:

Yep! It finally exists. After four years of slow boiling... Unbelievable! Please check out my brand-new “full band” album of original compositions, MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED (now available through, iTunes and AMAZON.COM), featuring me performing all the instruments (voices, guitar, bass, real acoustic drums, piano, accordion, and mandolin). I also produced, arranged, engineered, and did all the artwork/illustrations—intimate audio AND visual, lol! (Details can be seen in my YouTube: ALBUM PREVIEW/documentary.) I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Meanwhile, below are a collection of links to selected guitar instructional books and guitar transcription folios penned by Dale Turner—books covering a diverse collection of styles ranging from rock, jazz, funk, blues, ska/reggae, and country, to an assortment of fingerstyle acoustic guitar approaches useful for singer-songwriters. My personal favorite is the one called POWER PLUCKING: A Rocker's Guide to Fingerstyle Guitar. I really tried hard to cram into its 80 pages (WAY over 100 examples, and over 30 minutes of audio on its accompanying CD) all sorts of piano-style accompaniment moves, modern arpeggio techniques, singer-songwriter Travis picking/folk approaches, open chord ornamentation, pedal point, percussive effects, capo concepts, hybrid picking, and a mass of "modern" sounding acoustic voicings that folks can use to "liven up" or "modernize" otherwise stale/boring chord progressions. If you check it out, be sure to let me know how you're progressing with it!
