Format: Paperback
Naturally, the title tells it all. Well, not naturally, but in this case it just so happens to be so. Although, as you can tell, I gave it 3 stars, it really can be made 5 stars if you're for the most part a beginner. The book includes all of the unplugged songs, and they are even in TAB form. The only catch is that these TAB's aren't the actual TAB's Clapton plays. Thus, although you'll be playing a more complex version of the songs then just chords, it still won't have the same fingering as Claptons. Although there is another version that actually has the exact fingering as Clapton (besides the solos, unfortunately), I haven't seen it on Amazon. There is one more version of the book on Amazon, but I'm pretty sure that it is the chords only verison, or sheet music version. Personally speeking, I've only played for around 1 1/2 years, and I have found the real version (the one with Claptons actual fingering in TAB form, which isn't available on Amazon) to be rather easy, and rewarding. Although some songs you might just rather learn the chords for, others loose much of thier style when played in only chords. Thus, I recommend going down to your local Guitar Center and seeing if they have the real version in stock. As far as the content, it's what you expect from slowhand. Perfection. The album consists of many blues classics, and the book is true to it. In my opinion, nearly every song on this album is worth knowing how to play if you wish to enhance your mastery of the blues. Get one version or another soon, though.

Format: Paperback
This version of the book is the "fake book" version, as opposed to the actual transcriptions in the "from the album" version. While it is a perfectly adequate guide to the general structure of the tunes, the actual chord inversions, lead lines, picking patterns and fills are not even suggested here. If you want to play what's on the album, get the transcribed version.

You will read several reviews complaining about this or that version of the book at Amazon. What you will not see is are satisfying answers to the questions "which version is the one I'm looking for?" (clearly, because this depends on your particular "what") or "which is the version that transcribes accurately what's in the album?" In the attempt to find the authoritative answer to the second question, and to answer somewhat obliquely the first, here's some data that I have found helpful.

A visit to [...], which is the publisher of these books. shows that there exist FOUR versions and possibly, they are all different, though I can't be 100% sure of that.

1) Eric Clapton - Unplugged, Series: Guitar Recorded Version TAB
Artist: Eric Clapton

3) Eric Clapton - Unplugged, Series: Piano/ Vocal/ Guitar Artist Songbook

40 pages

It seems to me that only one of these will be the note by note transcription of the album and that it should be (1).

If you think this book will teach you the songs on "Unplugged", it won't. This is just a simplified version of the song transcriptions and is pretty much useless.
There's another version out there that contains the note-for-note transcrptions. That's the version I bought several years ago when "Unplugged" first came out, and that's the one you should buy...

Format: Paperback
First of all, I gave this book 5 stars because I think that Eric Clapton: Unplugged earned it. If you're like me though, you might be looking for the tab book that has every song, note for note, including solos. After reading all the other reviews I got tired of the same complaint, but nobody mentioned where you could get it. So if you want the real deal go to musiciansfriend.com

This book is USELESS if you want to learn how to play this album. The tablature is only for the melody not the actual guitar parts, thus if you buy this book because you want to play like Clapton it won't help you at all. ~guy

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Patrick B. Meegan on October 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
Provides accurate transcriptions of the awesome unplugged performance. Each nuance of the Clapton's exhibition is retained, which makes learning it all the more enjoyable. The accompanying CD is very well done and helped me to pare out the vocals and other performers and focus on the rhythm guitar. Highly recommended for those who love this album, the book will get you sounding like the original!

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By G. J Wiener on March 10, 2001
Format: Paperback
This music book is fine for most beginners and mid level guitarists. Advanced musicans might find parts of it more helpful than others as they can probably pick out most of EC's tunes without a book. Many of the instrumental passages are missing. None the less most of the chords are fairly on the money. Know your level and make the call.
