The Guitar Phonics archive includes all of the many items that I collected, saved, and kept in my possession for over forty-five years.  It is remarkable that they survive.  This collection is now saved as computer files so that historians, authors, and those interested in how the Guitar Phonics play guitar albums were created, have them available for research and study.  Combined, these documents tell the complex and complete story of the process that I used in developing the Guitar Phonics 'play guitar' albums.
