Format: Sheet music
I reviewed another Buddy Holly songbook some time ago and I was very critical because the tablature was absolutely weird, with keys transposed etc. This book is the real deal. The tablature is the way Buddy played it. In fact, I saw a stage show, the Buddy Holly Story, and the actor playing Buddy used a capo in "That'll Be the Day," and according to the tablature, this was accurate, that is indeed how Buddy played it. Personally, I play the song in the same key but with different chord positions without a capo.
Buddy Holly songs are simple and even though this is an accurate tablature, even a fairly novice guitarist can benefit from this book. In other words, this book is great for the guitarist who wants to accurately play the recorded version as well as the guitarist who needs easy transcriptions. In addition to the chords, tablature and lyrics, this book includes interesting notes that gives insight into the artist and his music. If you revere buddy Holly as much as I do, I highly recommend this book.

Format: Sheet music
I bought this book for my fiance and since he has received it he has learned how to play buddy's songs the way he did. It also includes a little information over each song, such as when it was releases and who wrote it. The odd thing is that on some of the songs it states it was written by Charles Hardin while others state Buddy Holly. I never knew that Buddy used a kapo in some of his songs but that is why this book is great it gives you all that information so you learn to play it right. The only dislike I had is it didn't have some of his well known hits in it. But a must own for any Holly fan wanting to play.

This excellent book will be kept for the future, when I will have reached the standard of playing required. I look forward to playing these songs in about 12 months time. I can tell that the tabs are very accurate, I can play these songs but not at the required speed.

It is a good book and I highly recommend it. I thought it is easy to follow but it is not because I am only a beginner. This book is for professional guitar player.
