Customer Reviews for Best Latin Songs
March 23, 2009
This is a book of latin standards. It is meant for an intermediate-level player. The sonds are a lot of fun to play.

guitar friendly arrangements
These are some of the best fingerstyle arrangements of these pieces that I have seen. Too often when songs are arranged for the guitar, the finger positions are awkward and not something a guitarist would instinctively do. That is not the case with these arrangements. They play comfortably with few, if any, instances where you need to do guitar acrobatics to get from one position to another.

Few songs but good notes
I bought this book along with "Latin - The Book - Easy Guitar". I like both books since they both were made for beginners being able to play their first latin tunes. Best Latin Songs contains way fewer songs than the other one, but I like the notes in this book better as they sound more authentic to me. "The Latin Book" has a tendency to move the notes down by several lines which makes the song sound somewhat out of line with the original. This can be seen very well when you compare Granada or Perfidia in both song books. If money is not an issue I would by both books. "Best Latin Songs" as a complement to "The Latin Book" since the notes in former book seem closer to the original song. The "Best Latin Songs" would serve as the main "input source" since it contains so many songs.
