I had been waiting for an AC/DC play along for so long, that when this one became available, I ordered it immediately.
Personally, maybe because I am not in a band yet, I think play alongs are lots of fun. We can jam with our favourite band in our bedrooms and still learn the guitar much more easily, due to the CD and tab combination. I also like to use the backing trackings without the guitar lead to train an improvise my own solos.
This book covers eight famous AC/DC songs, with a full demo first and then a second version of the same track minus the lead guitar. I play along with both versions. I use the first one to follow the lead guitar and get my playing tempo right. I start to play with the second one when I think I am already good enough.
If you give yourself enough time and practice, you can slowly reproduce every bend, vibrato, etc... It's a matter of rewinding the CD and working on it until you are really close. This is a very valuable learning tool in my opinion.
The songs chosen are some of their most famous. You will find "Highway to Hell", "Whole Lotta Rosie", "You Shook me all night long" and "Back in black" among others.
The recordings sound very nice and there is a part at the beginning of the book with tips to reproduce the classical tones for each song. This is a very nice touch too.
All in all, this is an extremely nice play-along, with a great theme(AC/DC) and a CD that has really nice recorded versions. For AC/DC fans this is really, really fun. I am glad I bought this book.

I bought this book and cd from Amazon.com because I always wanted to play AC/DC songs on the guitar. The book has both tabulature and standard notation for you to read so you can play. The book explains how to read them and other symbols used in the music. Tabulature is very easy to understand, but if the book does not explain it well enough for you, go to [...] for more information on how to read tab. The book also has the lyrics to all the songs. The CD has each song in the book with out lyrics, and then has the songs again but without the lead guitar so you can play as the lead guitarist. I suggest that anyone that has a guitar and is an AC/DC fan should get this book and CD.

My only complain is that the track 1 and 7 are the same (Back in Black). The 7 should have the lead guitar removed. It seems a QC problem.

But the sund quality is ok and the tabs are Ok.

Good book and companion CD. I like earlier AC\DC stuff with B. Scott but these songs are good too. I remember hearing these songs for the first time in junior high school back in 1980! Who needs a band anyway. Just crank up the CD and jamm along...
