Listed items are predominantly available in the Music Library. Consult Mirlyn for complete holdings information and availability of materials.  If you need assistance, a music librarian will be happy to help you.  Also, if you have recommendations for other resources on the guitar that are not owned by the Music Library, please let us know.
