If you love the Beatles and want to play their songs this book is for you.
Brian Peters
This time I took the book to Kinkos and had the binding cut off and had the book spiral bound so that it lays flat.
M. Fawcett
The chords are very accurate to the songs and the book contains most Beatles songs.

Format: Paperback
If you're used to getting Beatles chords from the internet, save yourself a lot of time, effort, and printing and get this book. Its format is excellent, and the fact that the original keys are used makes the song sound right from first chord. There are almost no errors in placement of chord symbols, and the chord diagrams before each song means you're going to be playing the right form of each chord listed.
All that could be added to make it absolutely perfect would be the signature licks or intros, but often you can work these out from the intro chords given.
I have worn this book out, figuratively. It's the best value for the buck I've ever come across. It even helps you appreciate more the creativity the Beatles showed in their songwriting.
There is no way to be disappointed as long as you understand that this one if for chords and singing the lyrics; it only does that but it does it perfectly.

Apparently the publisher has realized that the format used on the internet for posting lyrics and guitar chords is one that customers will buy if published in a book. Each song is arranged with chord diagrams at the top of the page and chord designations are placed appropriately above the lyrics. Since there is no "piano music," most songs are completed in one or two pages, so you don't have to turn pages in the middle of a song. The downside is 1) there are no leads or riffs included; 2) some of the early songs that were not written by the Beatles (Slow Down, Honey Don't - by Carl Perkins) are not included; and 3) some songs appear unnecessarily to be transcribed for the use of a capo, so those who hate the capo (like I do) must transpose. This book is a tremendous value for a relatively small price - 400 pages in a small paperback format. Buy it - you'll be glad you did!! Hopefully, the publisher will produce similarly formatted books for other artists.

Do not buy this book unless you just want to read the lyrics. This has all the songs, mostly in order, and mostly more or less what you hear on the records, so that's good. However, the book itself is too small, does not open flat or want to stay on a music stand. No problem if you don't mind breaking the binding. It needs a spiral binder to really make it useful. Not a bad book, just not as good as it could have been. Are the publishers paying attention to this?

Format: Paperback
This is the book Beatle musicians have long prayed for. This is the best resource and a far better tool than looking up chords online. The book provides the original keys and makes each song recognizable when you start to play it. The book has done a real service in providing the correct form for the chords in each song.

This book will undoubtedly delight Beatle fans and will certainly draw in people who are just becoming familiar with their works. You will learn the chords and will soon be happily singing along as you play Beatle songs!

Format: Paperback
Just like some of the other comments. This is a great Beatles book, the only problem is that the small page format along with the almost 400 pg. makes it near impossiable to open the book to a page and have it stay open. I liked the book and way the songs were done so well that I found a solution for the binding problem. I went to a local office supply store and bought a smaller sized 2" 3 ring binder. Then took the book to a speedy print shop were I had them drill 3 holes in the book for the binder and then cut the binding off of the book. Total cost 9 bucks, but now I can open it to any song I want and it stays there. Still this is one of the better books I have bought.

I have had the "Beatles Complete" songbook for 10 or so years and was happy with it, but I have thrown it out now !

The two things I like most about this book are they appear to be in the correct key... and the passing chords are fantastic !

Songs like

"Cry Baby Cry" Em Em(maj7) Em7 Em6 C7 G

"Benifit Of Mr Kite" Dm Dm(maj7) Dm7 Dm6 A A

"Norwegian Wood" D Cadd9 G/B D

"Here Comes The Sun" Bmadd11 Asus4 G6 Asus4 A7 D AI could go on and on the songs are endless.

Happy ?

You BET !!

Format: Paperback
WOW! What an amazing book, Just put your favourite Beatles song on, find the page and play! This was the first Beatles book I ever bought, 2 years on and IM still picking it up and having a jam! The Beatles Complete Songbook contains 194 songs written
and sung by the Beatles, specially arranged by Rikky Rooksby from the actual recordings, in the original keys. All songs are set out in an easy to read construction showing chord symbols and guitar boxes and complete lyrics, no complicated musical
notations included thank god! It also contains a playing guide and a full discography which is very useful. Each song played sounds just like the record , Every page has that spare space on it so that you can write down extra TABS (solos & intros) and
notations to your favourite songs. This really is the BEST Beatles chordbook to buy,its so easy to use and you'll never make a mistake playing! Save your money and buy it!

Great book for a guitarist. Chords seem pretty accurate. The binding is problematic. I borrowed our acrylic cook book holder from the kitchen and it works great to hold the book open to the song you want. Binding problem solved! You can get the cook book holder here on Amazon for about $8.
