Total Guitar

Really excellent magazine for beginners to pro's, great that you can play the songs/technique examples through your browser or even better to use the PC app, good range of topics every month, I used to have the physical magazine but find this more convenient & cheaper. Reviewed Sunday, June 21, 2020

Excellent mag

Would be awesome if this digital edition gave you access to the CD contents somehow, though. Reviewed Thursday, March 20, 2014

Very cool

The magazine is amazing but there is not cd tracks no sounds where should to be Reviewed Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Great mag

Great for teaching yourself Guitar! The tab is always good and the articles are interesting too! Would be good to get the CD content but I'm told there's licensing issues and that they hope to have it included soon. Reviewed Friday, February 28, 2014
