I'll look and see which CDs I have. W/ any luck you'll have the ones I'm missing and vice-versa. I will have to dig that stuff up though...

I have the Green Day rock CD, but I do not have the Clapton blues CD (though I do have the issue).

From memory, the ones that I have both the CD & Mag for are:
Acoustic Guitar (the first one)
Acoustic Guitar (w/ Badi Assad)
Jazz (w/ Wes Montgomery on the cover)
Nashville w/ Chet Atkins
Chicago Blues w/ Muddy Waters on the cover
Retro w/ Brian Setzer on the cover
Rock with Green Day on the cover
Blues (w/ I don't remember who on the cover. SRV maybe?)
and I think 1 or 2 others maybe.

Issues I have and have no CD for:
The Rock one with the Cherry Burst flying V on the cover
The Rock solos one with the cherry burst Les Paul on the cover
Jazz with the Sunburst ES-175 on the cover
Blues with Eric Clapton on the Cover
Rhythm w/ Keith Richards on the cover
and again 1 or 2 others that I can't remember.

Damn. Looking through those made me realize how good they were. They covered lots of ground and were basically collected lessons from Guitar Player magazine with an audio CD to go with them. At some point I need to just start working my way through them.

Truefire.com compiled all the lessons on a six cd-rom set. Here's the link and description from the site:

http://truefire.com/list.html?item=5064

The How To Play Guitar series was a fruitful labor of love from Guitar Player Magazine, Notes On Call and 86 of the planet's best guitar instructors. Over the course of 30 months, they produced 135 lessons across a 17-issue set that covers Blues, Rock, Country, Jazz, Acoustic, Rhythm, Lead, Nashville and Retro guitar techniques. The series was distributed internationally and was critically acclaimed as the "encyclopedia of guitar instruction." Alas, the full set of 17 magazines is no longer available in the analog world (long since glommed up by collectors). And that's where TrueFire comes in -- we created this e-Cyclopedia version by converting all 135 lessons into MP3 (audio) and PDF (tab) formats and then packaging the entire collection on CD. This new version includes Power Tab files for all examples - now you can "see" and "hear" the tab played out.

Sorry, haven't checked this thread in quite a while. Let me look to see if I have that tab for Cream. I'll shoot you an email if so.

Guys, I'm still looking a copy of the cd to the Clapton BLUES issues for "HOW TO PLAY GUITAR." Please PM me.

I realise your post is quite old now but I just found it......I have several of the 'how to play' mags but I don't have the blues one with clapton on the cover. are you still collecting them?

I would really like the Tab to Sleepy Time Time (from Fresh Cream), even a photocopy/scan would be great.
