Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases Vince Gill: Guitar Slinger, the album-matching songbook featuring the highly-acclaimed country music guitarist, arranged in guitar TAB and standard notation.

From country barn-burners and swinging rockabilly to his signature gorgeous ballads, Vince Gill returns to his guitar-playing roots in Vince Gill: Guitar Slinger. Guitarists who love virtuoso hot-picking and masterful Nashville-style guitar textures will find a wealth of brilliant guitar playing in these full note-for-note authentic transcriptions. Songs include “Guitar Slinger,” “When Lonely Comes Around,” and the 2011 Grammy®-nominated hit single “Threaten Me with Heaven.”

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, this songbook is printed on 100% recycled paper.

Vince Gill began his career as a bluegrass session guitarist and is considered among many as one of the finest guitarists in the world. With more than 26 million albums sold over the span of his career, Vince has received 18 CMA awards, including “Entertainer of the Year” in 1993 and 1994.

Other awards include 19 Grammy awards – the most of any male Country artist – and the 2012 winner of the ACM “Career Achievement Award.” As a member of the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, Vince is also recognized for his humanitarian efforts in hundreds of charitable events.
