-Song selection is varied and adequately represent the classic rock era
-Notation is thorough, including all chords, lyrics, some tabs, and standard sheet music for each song
-All the music seems to be in the correct keys, tuning, rhythms, etc
-has a short background for each song including band, chart ranking, year, etc. Interesting to read
-Although advertised as "Easy", the songs in this book are more suited for players of intermediate or higher skill level.
-The print is a bit small for my taste, I would rather spend more time playing guitar than trying to decipher the notes.
-TAB format is often not present for the whole song, usually just intro sections or solos.
On the whole, I think that this songbook is a good way to learn some of the more famous classic rock tunes. Rather than some books which only include the more recognizable parts of songs such as intros or main riffs, the Rolling Stone songbook contained sheet music for the entirety of every song. That being said, I found that the font size was set a little bit too small to make for easy reading while playing. I find myself having to spend a decent amount of time before even picking up my guitar to read the music and pick out the smallest of the notes (hammer-ons, pick-ups, chord charts). This book is probably NOT the best fit for those just starting guitar (I would reccommend the "Hal-Leonard Easy Pop Melodies" for novices, one edition comes with a CD to provide backup and tempo). But for those with a fair amount of skill, this publication from Rolling Stone with over 60 songs will provide hours of fun and value
Note on shipping: my copy came with 3 of the corners slightly damaged/dented but this was probably due to the shipping and not the publisher
