Emerging from a brief period as a teen pop star in the 60s ( a period that left him exhausted and ill), he rehabilitated by writing a new style of song. Introspective and unadorned, these songs would become the album Mona Bone Jakon, a brilliant collection represented here by the beautiful Katmandu.
Now he entered his golden period. Tea For the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat are still recognised as two of the most essential albums of the decade, and it’s no surprise that a healthy number of songs from these albums made the cut for this collection of Cat Stevens guitar lessons.
Subsequent albums failed to capture the magical innocence of these first three but nonetheless contained a great deal of wonderful music, and you’ll learn Oh Very Young and Can’t Keep It In from these later albums.
Now he’s back singing again (as ‘Yusuf’), a new generation is discovering the beauty of Cat Stevens’ music. Now you can learn to play it too from this collection of Cat Stevens Guitar Lessons, exactly as he played them back then, and still does today. All the little nuances that make the songs sound distinctive are captured in these guitar lessons, but at the same time all the songs are very playable for guitarists with a little experience.

You’ll receive at least two videos per song, one lesson and one performance-standard play-through. You’ll also receive the chords/lyrics and guitar tabs as PDF files.
The videos are mp4 format and should play on PC’s, Macs and most mobile devices.
They will download as Zip files. If you don’t have a Zip program on your PC you’ll need to install one to open the file. I use Zipeg which you can get free, here.
