Format: Paperback
It is a nice book to have if you are a Hank Willams fan like me. The flat & finger picking arrangemnts are very basic and simple. It is easy to follow and great for beginners.

If you are a more accomplished guitar player and are looking for a book that helps you to play exactly like Hank or sound like Hank William's band, you may be a little disappointed.

I wish Sokolow could show us the exact chords Hank used and included guitar fill-ins and breaks by Hank's band to give us the flavor of Hank William's original recording. Hopefully someday Fred or someone else will do this for us.

I have not been playing guitar for very long and I am a huge Hank Williams fan. I learned the chords to his songs but the solos were beyond me to figure out. This book (Although not entirely accurate) helped me learn the basics of flatpicking while making the songs sound recognizable. It is a very good beginner flatpicking and fingerpicking book (I havn't done any of the fingerpicking but I'm sure its good). For the more experienced guitarist, it gives a great starting point for you to embellish upon.
The Tab written in this book I have found to be usefull during the solo portions of the song. I play the Chords while singing and during the instrumentals I flatpick from the book and this works very well.
I like how Sokolow gets you playing right away with all the classic Hank Williams songs.

This book of songs by hank williams is nicely done and would make excellent material for those learning flat picking and finger picking. The music is very well laid out in both music notion and tabs for both styles for each song. The finger picking tabs are very clear and well done. If you are looking for a Hank Williams song book where you want to sing and stumm the songs, then put in instumental breaks in between verses, this book is for you. The words are all there with the music. This is a really nice book, I have been playing Hank Williams stuff for twenty years and think this is a nice book.

This tab book is not accurate to the original recordings. If you're wanting to own Hank Williams material in its original form, you'll be very disappointed with this book. It's even basic for beginners. Would not recommend to anyone.

Decent collection of songs but they are not written in the same keys as Hanks original recordings so you can't play along with the music. There is no CD in the correct key for sheet music is included. Okay if you already are experienced with transcriptions or alternate tunings

Several others have commented on the tab being inaccurate, which is true. More precisely, the tab is an arrangement of the vocal melody line for the guitar, not a transcription of the songs' guitar parts. I guess some people might like this; I was disappointed.

On the other hand, you do at least get the chord progressions and lyrics for each song. I have not verified that the songs are arranged in the original key, though.
