I love this book! It has a great selection of songs beautifully arranged. The fingerstyle in this book includes the actual melody (i.e. vocal) line in the actual arrangement. If you intend to sing along AND only want a 'backing' type accompaniment - then this MIGHT not be suitable. Having said that there really is nothing stopping you singing along to it also!!! I bought it wanting to be able to play an arrangement so that those familiar with the song would recognise it immediately even without me singing!... and I can now do just that. A real delight!!! Highly recommended!!!

I play this a lot
These are fingerstyle arrangements, intended to be played as solos, and NOT supposed to match what John Denver played to accompany his voice. The songs capture the beauty of John Denver's music, and I play them a lot. Great for people playing fingerstyle guitar for a year or two.

Better Transcriptions Can Be Found Elsew
If you want to sound Like John Denver playing the guitar, this collection is sure to disappoint. Written more for ease I could not seem to grow comfortable with this arrangement in sound. I found that John Denver Authentic Guitar Style (2506901) was much more enjoyable and was transcribed to be axactly like what John really played. Look elsewhere if you really want to play his music.
