Mark Hanson’s Lifetime Song List: 2,000 and Counting! Want to Learn Some?

Posted on Posted in Announcements, Stories, Tips from Mark

This is the list of tunes that I have worked on/performed/taught at some point between 1963 and the present. The list is currently about 2,000 tunes!

Many have been published in my books/DVDs/recordings.

Many have been transcribed, arranged or composed for my personal performance use, and/or for the many thousands of students I have had in private and workshop situations over the years. And some are works in progress, often undertaken during a lesson.

Please browse through them. This is a lifetime of work! If you are interested in learning guitar music from me, please contact me at:

Mark @ (delete the spaces when emailing).

I am available for coaching you in your playing, and teaching particular tunes and/or techniques. (I am NOT available for custom transcribing.)

Happy reading!

One thought on “Mark Hanson’s Lifetime Song List: 2,000 and Counting! Want to Learn Some?

  1. I have really enjoyed working through your The Art of Solo Fingerpicking. The compositions and arrangements are absolutely beautiful and thus motivating, and the your approach to the tablature (for example, marking notes struck by the thumb) is the best anywhere. Tunes like “Flyer” are really ingenious. I am writing because I enjoy both of the David Blakeley pieces you include and especially “Good Time Blues” included in your list, but haven’t heard of the guitarist or been able to find any recordings. They don’t seem to exist in digital format! Do you know whether the artist can be reached or the recordings accessed?
