I've played acoustic guitar for just over two years. One thing I've discovered, which I never realized before, is that it is possible to buy songbooks of performers, in which the music sounds nothing like the published pieces!

For Neil Young in particular, I am finding it hard to find songbooks.

However, I am very glad I bought this one. To my ear, at least, using this book I can play some of his most famous songs in a way that sounds like the actual published versions.

So I am very pleased with this book.

I've had the book a few days.
The tab is functional, the finger picking is very basic.
Not 100% accurate but definitely recognizable.
Perhaps adding "easy" or "beginning" to the title would
better describe the book.

This songbook from the Fingerpicking Guitar Series is awesome! It is just the right difficulty for an advanced beginner/intermediate player, and captures the songs perfectly. I have been very pleased with this book and would highly recommend it to others who have the fingerpicking bug!

Format: Paperback
Some of the best Neil Young tunes here-in .....well-made with decent notation to fiddle around with my meager keyboard skills which equals hours of enjoyment.

While true Neil Young fans know his treasure-rich songwriting career encompasses many many fine tunes not in this collection, it's difficult to find much fault in these sixteen beauties. (I am lucky to have purchased both "On the Beach" and "Zuma" songbooks for piano/guitar when available in the 70's)

Greatist Hits starts with "Down by the River"; easy to hear the plaintive cry of lost love. But I also wonder if Neil's choices of chords/melody were a direct or otherwise influence when Pink Floyd's group effort "Breathe" came out a few years later? Inneresting, but as Neil says onstage, "It's all the same song!"

Well, if you like the music of Neil Young, buy this and mess around with the music (whether you can read notes on the music staff or not isn't critcal)to see which chords are played in first position, and which aren't. Listen carefully enough from the "way it sounds" vs.the recordings; then you can consider the songbook purchase a substitute for a few piano lessons and learn to pick out some great tunes.

These are fun and accessible arrangements of these great songs. You can't beat the price and if you add a 2nd player on rhythm they can be even more fun!

This would be perfect but for the fact that, when zoomed in, you must exit the zoomed page in order to navigate to the next page of the music. Then, of course, if you enlarge that page you have to go through the whole process again in order to get to the following page. The only upside is that they're simple little ditties that should be easy to memorize therefore making it not necessary to have to read the music at all.
