It has a wide range of songs that are familiar to most every English-speaking beginning musician.
The songs are progressively more advanced, going from two chords to a wider range of chords.
The guitar chord fingerings are included, allowing for easy mastery of these basic chords.
There are a wide range of suggested strumming patterns, alternate texts/verses, and other variations to keep things fresh and fun.
The book is set up in "fake-book" format, with the melody written out in treble staff, and only the chords provided for the accompaniment.
I would have liked to see basic instruction on the piano in here as well. That would have been a very simple addition, and would have provided for more use. I use this book to work out my basic, but developing transposing skills. Play each song in all keys, transposing both melody and chords. It's a very useful exercise. Also, there are great songs in here you will not easily find in other books.
