Format: Paperback
I find this sheetbook quite useful. Needless to say, if you don't have the album don't bother with it. However it contains some fine music and it is excellent excercise too. Still I find a repeating problem with all of Sting's sheetbooks. They all seem like adapted versions of the songs, not how they're really played. So if you find the bass riff in the beggining of "Fields of gold" unlike the original, it is because it is originally played by the horn, and so on... Still, It's worth it.

This book is a must-have for anyone who wants to play some of Sting's greatest hits from 1984 thru 1994. Each song contains vocal (treble clef), piano (treble and bass clef) and guitar tabs. Since the titles of the tunes are not displayed for this book, here they are:

All This Time
Be Still My Beating Heart
Englishman In New York
Fields OF Gold
Fortress Around Your Heart
Fragile
If I Ever Lose My Faith In You
If You Love Somebody Set THem Free
Russians
They Dance Alone (Cueca Solo)
This Cowboy Song
We'll Be Together
When We Dance
Why Should I Cry For You?

I hope this helps your decision to buy this book.

I haven't checked out all the songs yet, but the ones I have checked were transcribed good enough. I also wasn't expecting the book to provide guitar and bass tabs, but it does. However, like most of the Transcribed Scores books, it's not without its minor and major problems. One flaw I found is that the piano solo at the end of "This Cowboy Song" is transcribed wrong in some parts. I appreciate Hal Leonard taking the time to transcribe it and not just put a bunch of 'ad lib' bars in its place, but wrong is wrong (also, Hal Leonard claims that these transcriptions were arranged EXACTLY as the artists recorded them). Another major issue is that not ALL instruments are transcribed for most songs. For example, the tambourine in "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" is only mentioned in the first few bars and is excluded from the rest of the song, even though its rhythm changes. In "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You", they didn't transcribe the acoustic guitar, which was previously transcribed in their "Ten Summoner's Tales" Transcribed Scores book (though that book provides no guitar tabs). Another flaw I noticed is that sometimes the guitar/bass tab is inconsistent with the notes provided. For example, it might tell you fret 3 on the B string of a guitar is note E when it's really D (and I checked, these songs don't use a capo). There are also a few parts where they put a note with an X, which the back of the book says is a note that can't be transcribed. One instance this is used is the guitar part of "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free", the bar before the bridge. I do like that most solos in the songs were transcribed. Even the saxophone solo at the end of "Englishman in New York" appears in this book.Read more ›
