    Fantastic book. Themes & bridges are equivalent to Grover's live performing (youtube, CD) also transcriptions are very accurate. A book to study for a while.

    This was gotten for a 14 year old to add to the music she was playing in school. She has a new respect for as she call it music of old.

  • September 10, 2008 Exactly what you ordered

    There is little leeway in producing a book that contains solo transcriptions, but a few things that could be done wrong. This book does exactly what you have bargained for, and in a pleasant way. The transcriptions are in the original key, which is important, but not always done in...

    other books of the kind. It also features chord symbols, crucial for most players. The book is complemented by some background information and photos of the original artist.
