This month, Total Guitar has conducted a series of polls on GuitarWorld.com to decide the greatest guitar albums of all time. With a poll for each decade from the 60s to the 2010s and 2020s, a staggering 150,000 votes were cast! Inside the mag you'll find an epic 50+ page cover feature profiling the guitar playing on the top 10 albums of each decade, with every number one getting an in-depth examination, either from the guitarist who made the record or a player notably influenced by it. And you can pick up a few playing tips along the way with our tab lessons.
