Collin Bay's Top 10 Guitar Books


I'm delighted to be able to share this fun blog with you.


The 50 Greatest Guitar Books features several Top 10 lists of favorite guitar books from many illustrious players, educators, and publishers. Among the names is Collin Bay, who is in change of artist relations and product development at Mel Bay (not to mention being the grandson of the legendary Mel Bay).


When I reached out to Collin for a contribution he responded within just a few hours with two lists: one with commentary, one without. I was blown away by how well-written and thoughtful his commentaries were.


Regrettably, to keep the appendix consistent, I was unable to publish Collin's commentaries in the book. So I'm posting them on The 50 Greatest Guitar Books Blog so we can all benefit from Collin's insight. Enjoy.
