Format: Paperback
This is not the first Alice Cooper guitar tablature book, but it is a major improvement on some previous releases that had some pretty awful transcriptions of the songs. What is transcribed here is the following songs.

01 Billion Dollar Babies
02 Desperado
03 Feed My Frankenstein (at long last)
04 I Never Cry
05 I'm Eighteen
06 Is It My Body
07 No More Mr. Nice Guy
08 Only Women Bleed
09 Poison
10 Schools Out
11 Under My Wheels
12 Welcome To My Nightmare

Review.
Although most of the songs are transcribed very well, especially Feed My Frankenstein, some other songs suffer by either not being shown the correct ways to play the songs, or incomplete areas of songs. For example, "I Never Cry" works the way they have shown it here, but I very much doubt the bands guitar players would have played it that way, they seem to have gone for more simpler chords rather then the ways it is played. If you watch the guitar players during the live shows, they are playing in a standard tuning and not the C tuning this book shows.

"I'm Eighteen" 's intro is a bit of a mess. That's certainly not the way it's played, it's not far off, but for a beginner guitarist it would confuse the heck out of you trying to wrap your head around what they have written here, and it's certainly much easier to play then the way they have shown. "Only Women Bleed" has some very important parts not shown how to play then right. "Poison" is decent, but the positions it shows the intro played in aren't the way it's really played and the short slides are not even noted, instead it has two mystery slides, and I'm buggered if I know why they are in THAT spot.

"Welcome To My Nightmare" is the major downer for me.

As someone who has listened and played these songs, I will say that most of this is accurately transcribed. Like several other reviews here, I have to say that "Welcome To My Nightmare" seems to be missing an interlude section here, but other than that it is in my opinion, a job well done. I was glad to finally have transcriptions to "No More Mister Nice Guy" and "Billion Dollar Babies". Ideally somebody should release album by album transcriptions of Alice Cooper's albums. Maybe someday but for now I say once again - well done.

As a longtime Alice Cooper fan (since early 70s) I was thrilled to see an Alice Cooper guitar tab book.
