  • August 18, 2012 Not as good as Simply Bach

    I liked Simply Bach a lot, so I ordered this one too. But it has a different arranger and I feel the pieces sound too simplified. There are a few that appear in both books, and the Bach arranger, Jerry Ray, does a much better job, hands down. I also...

    bought the easy piano arrangement of Pachelbel's canon, (Dan Coates) and it is much superior to the one in this book. There are a couple of gems, so it isn't a total loss. This would be good for a child, but for an adult like me, who is familiar with all these pieces, there's just not enough dimension.
