This book is FANTASTIC. IF YOU WAN'T TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY "MRS. ROBINSON" as it was RECORDED...GET THIS BOOK. "THE BOXER" IS ALSO ACCURATELY TRANSCRIBED.
The accompanying CD is TREMENDOUSLY helpful and shows you how the songs sound when you do it right.
The author also has a half dozen other tunes added.
It's a JACKPOT.
THE BEST SIMON & GARFUNKEL GUITAR TAB BOOK I'VE EVER SEEN! 10 STARS!!!!!

Enjoyed looking through the book, though I only knew 2 songs initially. The notes/chords are straight forward and quite playable.

I have been playing Simon and Garfunkel songs on the guitar for about 45 years, but I have never been able to reproduce the guitars on “The Boxer” to my satisfaction. Some years ago I found that a guitar mag had published the tab, but though I ordered that issue online, it was no longer available. Since that time I have searched on and off for authentic tab for that song, but never found it. When I saw this book reviewed and some said that the tab was authentic, I had my doubts, but took a chance and purchased it anyway. The simple bottom line is that the tab for "The Boxer" is unfortunately not faithful to the original recording. There is a note at the top of the tab that says “Two guitars arranged for one.” When I saw that my heart sank. I almost sent the book back at that moment. However, there is a CD included, and I decided at least to give that a listen.

The CD includes two versions of each song, one with all instruments, and one with the main guitar removed. The latter was the gem for me. It allowed me to hear only the second guitar by itself, and after a little fiddling I realized that it was being played in a G-chord fingering with the capo on the 5th fret. (The Paul Simon part is played in C without a capo.) That made all of the little harmonized runs such as during the “. . . runnin’ scared, laying low . . .“ part of the verse super easy to finger. Armed with that information I invested in guitar tab editing and playing software ($75) and also software to help me isolate and slow down the two guitar parts in the original ($50), and after several intense weekends I had guitar tab that was close to 100% note for note, and is highly satisfying to listen to when played back on Guitar Pro software.
