    Every song in this book is worth playing.I played the easy tunes right away then I worked on the more complicated arrangements. I'm no virtuoso and can't read music very well, so I just played the melodies and corded along at first. But as I became more...

    familiar with the music, I found that adding the rich textures of the good arrangements made each playing more satisfying. I highly recommend this book for anyone who ready to move on from Heart and Soul.
