Faber Music Releases Play in a Day DVD from Master Guitarist Bert Weedon

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, January 17, 2013
Faber Music, the leading independent British publisher of classical, contemporary, media, printed pop and educational music, releases the DVD version of Bert Weedon’s best-selling tutorial guides, Play in a Day. Previously only available in VHS format, the DVD showcases Bert’s expert tuition to help beginning guitarists learn basic skills and gain the confidence to continue on to more advanced guitar playing. After just the first 25 minutes of instruction, a complete beginner with any six string guitar will be able to join in with Bert and his group to play their first tune. Each selection ends with the viewer playing along to one of fifteen tunes in varying styles and rhythms.

Highly regarded for his versatility, Bert’s glittering career (including being voted Britain’s Top Guitarist nine times) has been a strong influence on virtually every famous name linked with the instrument. He was the first British guitarist to have a hit record on the UK Singles Chart, and was honoured with an Order of the British Empire award in 2001 for his "services to music.”

The Play in a DayDVD (12-0571537146) is now available for $13.50 at music retail stores and at alfred.com.
