Not a good set of songs for a beginner
Reviewed in the United States on June 25, 2018
As an experienced guitarist, I thought this might be a fun book to use to pick up some quick and easy songs. The book has lots of problems, both for the beginner and for the more advanced guitarist. First, the layout is difficult to read, with lyrics spanning the page with little else to help you keep track of what line represents what verse. The song selection is all over the map, from Dylan to Jason Mraz, Boston to Queensryche. The former you can pull off without revising the arrangement, but there's no way anyone but an advanced arranger is going to pull off Boston's "More Than A Feelling" on acoustic guitar. Each song gets a two-page spread, and the pages work poorly as lead sheets and as chords + lyrics. Finally, there are some questionable key changes for some of the songs, placing the song out of the singing register of some voices.
