Most of the mistakes are incorrectly notated rhythms, which are sometimes not even close to what Steve actually plays. (In "The Ancient," having bungled an important rhythmic figure several times in a row, the transcriber gets it right on one occasion later in the piece, but then reverts to the earlier, incorrect version later on.) If you listen carefully to the recordings, these mistakes shouldn't cause you too much trouble. The notes, at least, are largely correct (actually there are some wrongs notes as well, but in most cases the corrections are obvious).
This book isn't expensive and it's a decent starting point for learning this music, but the number of errors is pretty outrageous. Until something better comes along, though, it beats taking the time to transcribe these pieces yourself. Just keep the recorded versions handy.
I originally bought this book to refine my rendition of "Mood for a Day". I found that although all the tablature is accurate and complete - there are specific nuances to these complex songs that have been better captured by other authors - such as Jamie Andreas - who has a three part lesson which is a thourough treatise on MFAD.
So, in summary, I would say this is a great offering and gave it 4 stars. However, when it comes to songs of high complexity - the tablature and music may not always be enough and there are other resources out there.

I am only a TAB player, but this was clearly written and with practice, I've learnt the first 4 pages so far. Very pleased with the transcription!Published 5 months ago by Casey Herman
