Format: Paperback
I had a lot of fun with this book, however this is definatly not material for advanced guitar players. The melodies are mostly simple and one-note sequences that go along with the vocals. What is great about this book is the song list. Most people will know or have heard of 95% of the songs in it. Every song has the right chords and chord diagrams to go along with it, saving a lot of pain trying to find the right chords online. For the price, I would definatly recommend buying it, but don't expect anything that sounds incredible. Overall, the book is a lot of fun to flip through and play along with in a recreational way. And again, A+ on the song list.

As a casual guitar player constantly looking for fun songs to play, this book offers hours of entertainment. Steeped in classic hits but with a good mix of contemporary songs, this is the perfect book for someone looking for that extra bit of inspiration when they pick up their guitar.

If you've played guitar for awhile this is probably not the book you're looking for. Most of music transcibed in this book is the single string melody of the vocal line, not the guitar riffs from the song. Might be more interesting to a new musician, as beginners can pick out the vocal melody easier, but rather frustrating when you want something a little more challenging.

Hal Leonard makes a number of quality guitar books.

This is not one of them.

The songlist looks fine. The book looks good.

The transcriptions of the songs are pretty far off.

A number of them result in making the song unrecognizable.

Reminds me of some very old guitar books.

I returned mine.

Great idea. Too bad.....

Not exactly what I expected. Soundwise some of the songs aren't close to the original. There are a number of songs that it is apparent that the editor took some poetic license in redefining "easy." All in all, I rate the book as average in being easy and in song quality.

What this book doesn't tell you (until you buy it) is that at least 10 of the songs (Zeppelin, Stones, Who) have been removed due to licensing restrictions. They're still listed in the table of contents but at the bottom is an addendum that states "*Omitted from the publication because of licensing restrictions". What a joke. Now it isn't even 100 songs and a bunch of the good ones are not there. That's 10% of the book!

The songs listed in the table of contents but not included are:
1. Satisfaction - Rolling Stones
2. Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
3. Won't get fooled again - the Who
4. Brown Sugar - Rolling Stones
5. Sympathy for the Devil - Rolling Stones
6. Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
7. Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
8. Jumping Jack Flash - Rolling Stones
9. Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin
10. Whole lotta shaking going on - Jerry Lee Lewis

I am trying to learn guitar along with my daughter and thought this would be helpful. I'm trying to learn to finger pick a few songs that we both know to keep us interested as just learning the chords is proving hard to keep these two beginners very motivated. There are a few songs with the tabs, but many are way over my head with different guitar tuning and capo placement. I think this is geared towards someone who is more advanced than we are.

Looks like a great guitar tab book but in the Kindle format you can not see the chords! Print too small. Kindle option is to amplify the font, which all that happens it to change the size of the title. The actual music remains so small you need a magnifying glass to read it. I have the Kindle App on my Surface Pro 2 but can not affect an increase in the magnification.
