By Bruce P. Barten on April 11, 2003
Format: Sheet music
The songs in this book are dated from 1966 to 1976, though the book didn't appear until 1978. Neil Young has a long history in music, and it has been easy for other performers to pick up and do songs that have been scored as this book has, with a separate treble staff for the vocal parts, and chord charts for guitar chords throughout. A footnote at the beginning of "The Loner" explains how to make the guitar different, "Tune first and sixth strings to D (D A D G B D)" (p. 29) to play the chords in that song. This is not the same as "Sugar Mountain," "Tune all strings down one whole step to a D-based tuning." (p. 21).
I had an early video of his "Rust Never Sleeps" concert, in which Neil Young sat down by himself at a piano and played, note for note, the song "After the Gold Rush" as it appears on pages 54-57 of this book. The last page is mainly devoted to singing the line, "Flying Mother Nature's silver seed to a new home in the sun" twice, after "All in a dream, all in a dream the loading had begun." I realized that it would take a lot of preparation to get that far, but the time which I devoted to reaching that destination was some of the most worthwhile musical efforts that I have ever attempted.
There are 35 songs in NEIL YOUNG ~ DECADE. Fans of particular concerts, like WELD, might consider most of these songs very early in Neil Young's career. The book is copyright 1978, Weld didn't come along until 1991, and only includes "Cinnamon Girl," "Cortez the Killer," "Like a Hurricane," and "Tonight's the Night": only four of the 35 songs in this book. Fans of Buffalo Springfield might appreciate "Expecting To Fly," and people who sing harmony might see if matching the notes in the book is easier than trying to pick parts off the recorded version.

Just rec'd my second copy ever of this song book. I have an original that I've held together somehow all these many years. It's amazing they crammed all these songs into this rather small 7"x5" almost hymnal type book. But for someone familiar with the songs contained in this book, and like me, just need refreshing their brains when playing. This book is ok. The depth and detail of the original book isn't here. You get the melody line on top of each page, the chord structure below, then lyrics with chord lettering over each change up. And also a note if there is a tuning change, and that's about it. So this IS NOT the original book published back in the 70's. At least it doesn't match up with mine. But you can learn the chord structure and get a pretty good idea about the song. No tab if that is what you are looking for either. I'm glad I still have my original. For the life of me I cant understand why they didn't just copy the original. They are using the Original books cover and name...
Added note from original review.. The songs in this song book Decade, are exactly the same songs on the two album Record/CD Neil Young Decade. I'll assume if your looking at this you have the album or CD or wouldn't be looking at this. If you need a listing of the songs contained in this book, simply contact me in the comment section and I will gladly give you the song listing.

This book was used but in very good condition. Make sure you buy the full size edition with all the music and tablature for guitar and piano. There's a mini book out there with a few riffs and lyrics, it's useless.

Apparently, I did not read the product description or perceive it clearly. It's much too small to use at the piano with any ability. Reading chords is fine, but I prefer to sight-read notes and chords. I may still find a way to use it but it doesn't strike me as user friendly. I was and remain quite disappointed that this format is what I received.

What can I say that you don't know. If you want to play Neil's Greatest, or at least most of his greatest. This book is for you. I bought this to replace mine that I lent to someone back 30 years ago. I love his music and this guitar book is one of my favorites.

Chords are easy enough and songs fun to play. Knowing so many of the songs makes it easy to figure them out on my guitar. Pure fun.

Jeff, the stay at home strummer

I am just starting out on guitar and I really appreciate this book. I doesn't have any long solos transcribed, but there ain't room for them without sacrificing something else. You learn the chord structure, the melody, piano accompanyment and best of all, the chord fingerings and guitar tunings. If I want to learn the exact way the song is played, I play along to the CD over and over again. This book will get you past the rudiments of learning the song, you have to do the rest.

This is after all Neil Young. The first 10 years. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase and the handling of its delivery. First rate all the way. Item was in much better condition than hoped for. Thanks Steve for making this happen.
