  • March 25, 2009 The Little Movie That Won An Oscar

    If you have not seen the movie--see it. Then get the music. The duets of piano and guitar are one of a kind. Written by the stars of the movie, they performed on the 2008 Academy Award Show before winning the award for best original movie score.

  • March 20, 2009 I love, love, love this music.

    I have this movie, the soundtrack, and the sheet music for the single falling slowly. This is pretty new to come out and of course it is already one of my favorite pieces. I love the originality of the music from Once. A lot of this songs are accompaniment (forgive...

    my spelling) piano to be played with a guitar as well, but some of them are lead piano. The songs are really fun to play and are incredibly beautiful.

  • March 19, 2009 do not buy for guitar

    Don't really think this book is good for guitar - there are no tabs. The chord positions are akward (I've seen tabs/chord arrangements that use open chords and sound fine) and didn't think it sounded right to me.

  • February 06, 2009 great music

    this is a great soundtrack and it is good to be able to play it on the piano, as i find it is often more difficult to get books that do not focus more on the TAB versions. Some of the songs are easier and some are very tricky, it...

    is a challenge and helps if you know the music already. This music was written in Ireland, i live in England and yet the only place i could buy this score was from America!
