I'll be taking mine to Kinko's to see if they can pop a clear plastic front and back cover in the comb binding because this book is going to see some serious use.
PS: In case you're wondering: the all-important "Princess Poo-Poo-Ly Has Plenty Pa-Pa-Ya (And She Loves to Give it Away)" is included. ;-) Also, much of the book is copyright protected material; so the price is a bargain.
Addendum: I still don't advise buying the Kindle version, but Amazon has kindly allowed an inhouse credit so that i could buy the paper version to send to ole Sis. Thank you, Amazon.
Some of the songs didn't do it for me for various reasons. Either I didn't know the tune, or didn't enjoy playing it. But I found loads of useful songs that I wouldn't have thought to look up elsewhere. Oh by the way, there are a lot of Beatles and several Monkees songs. Somehow the authors got the rights to those. It took itunes a decade to get the Beatles so... kudos.
Here's a list of the songs I've most enjoyed from this book:
Last Train to Clarksville
My Blue Heaven
It's Time to Get Laid
5 Foot 2
Hey Good Lookin
It's Only a Paper Moon
Your Cheatin Heart
You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You
When I'm 64
Bye Bye Blackbird
Bye Bye Love
By the Light of the Silvery Moon
Dream a Little Dream of Me
I'm a Believer
I'm Henry VIII I Am
I Walk the Line
When the Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin
When You're Smiling
The Rainbow Connection
Though the majority of songs in the book are familiar, you will have to be resourceful to locate the melody for some. A little Internet savvy can be very helpful in that quest. Fortunately, each of the arrangements has melody notation.
Without a doubt, this is a book of songs that every uker can enjoy.
