    It’s time to thin the guitar book and CD library!

    I began playing jazz guitar in 2011 and like a lot of beginners, I searched for and collected a large library of books and CD/DVD’s - many based on recommendations of forum members, others based on reviews. Most are jazz-related. I will update the list from time to time, so check back again if books are your thing.


    • Condition: The majority of these books are in like-new condition, and for the most part, they are free of highlights and pen or pencil marks. Covers are clean and crisp. Exceptions are noted. Apologies in advance if I missed a random scribble!
    • Prices: All books are priced at 50% of the printed cover price unless noted.
    • Shipping: $3 per book via USPS Media Mail.
    • Buying: send me a PM with book titles you want and I'll send you instructions for payment.

    Quite a collection you have there. Are you keeping a lot for yourself or only a few books?

    They say you can tell a man's hobby by what he spends money on. It is clear you went all in!

    Oh yes, I have a great library of Aebersold backing tracks; woodshed stuff like Blues in All Keys, Major and Minor, ii-V-I, and Dom 7 Workout. I have some great books on Gibson guitars, and some wonderful player bios (Martino, Green, Montgomery, Metheny), and the Real Book collection continues to grow!

    Sale Closed. Thank you, all for looking and buying.

    I have donated the remaining books to the local library.

    Cheers and stay in tune!
