Tango Stories: Musical Secrets
by Lavocah, Michael
In this book, you’ll be going on a journey through tango music. It introduces the individuals that shaped the tango history, making sure to let you know about their stories, hence the name. It really serves as a definitive guide to tango music instead of the dance itself.
by Meghan Flaherty
While it’s not exactly a direct resource for tango lessons, as the name suggests, it tells a story of a young woman in the tango dancing profession, you can still make use of it as a research material. The book talks about problems in this profession that you might find helpful.
by Batt Johnson
Tango Intoxication is perhaps what you can call an encyclopedia when it comes to tango dancing. Take note, however, that it focuses on Argentine tango and it’s really perfect for students who are serious at exploring the arts and culture of Argentine tango.

This book talks about guitar chords and this may be extremely useful especially for players who are only starting with playing the guitar. There are also movable chord forms included in this book.
