    Difficulty Level:
  • December 10, 2007 read description carefully

    This book has a nice selection of songs but I wish I had looked more closely at the sample pages and description. There is no piano accompaniment, or vocal parts, or chord markings, so it's great for learning melodies and lyrics that may have been long forgotten, but unfortunately...

    that's not what I needed it for.
