    I have mixed emotions about this book! I love most of the transcriptions - love to play most of them, but am enormously frustrated by not having the entire version of the ones I like best! I just get going; in the groove, humming away, and - boom! - it's done... At...

    least, when I flip to the next one, it's pretty much in tone with the previous piece, so I can pretend I'm really just playing one version to the end - if that doesn't sound too odd... It's great having the recording to check out my timing (Oh, THAT'S how it's played!), and, all things considered, I'm enjoying it and am glad I bought it.
