  • April 01, 2010 Nice book, but missing some of the coolest songs

    Was interested in this book for the songs from the " Missouri sky" CD, but couldn't find the songs I was looking for. So a big disapppointment there

  • May 04, 2006 Marching to Pat Metheny

    At my high school we marched to Pat Metheny's Letter from Home. It was a beautiful Ballad that I really enjoyed marching to infront of everyone during our shows. I hope that next year we do another one of Pat Metheny's Ballads.

  • January 03, 2002 No Solos Transcribed

    The book is a fantastic work if you are looking for charts of almost all of Metheny's music. However, if you are hoping to find his guitar solos transcribed, you will be let down. I'm still waiting for a note-for-note book covering his most amazing guitar...

  • December 27, 2000 Finally

    Finally, an authoritative reference for Pat Metheny's music. I especially enjoyed the descriptions and context given by Metheny in which he describes the thought process that accompanied each song. Even the most rhythmically challenging pieces (e.g., First Circle) are faithfully and accurately transcribed in a familiar lead sheet...

    type format. Harmonically dense passages immediately make sense with chord symbols. (e.g., The Sun in Montreal). This is high quality.
