    Wow. James Taylor has some beautiful songs with some pretty fancy picking, and this book captures it!! It's so awesome and satisfying to listen to the song and then play it exactly how James plays it. An excellent book for anybody wanting to know how to actually play some...

    of James Taylor's best songs.

  • October 15, 2004 Finally accurate sheet music

    This is easy to read and accurate. I'm so tired of paying for sheet music that doesn't even have the correct lyrics, or gives chords when the real song is played with finger picking. This is a GREAT one! The lyrics and chords are correct, and FINALLY someone...

    gives the actual PICKING !!!

  • May 21, 2003 This is it!

    This is it! The perfect TAB book DOES exist! Here it is. I have yet to find a better one. The transcription is perfect, notation is perfect, format is perfect, and chords are perfect. This book is so good, that when I go to the music store, if I find...

    this book on the rack, I will turn it upside down and hide it behind other books. I don't want anyone on earth to be able to play these songs that well! I hope I never see anyone who can play these. And this book is the one that will teach ANYONE to play them too! That's why I'm careful! Shhh... This book does not exist... do not buy it!... (Unless you want to play some of James Taylor's most beautiful songs perfectly!)

  • December 19, 2002 This One is Good!

    A very good tab book. Authentic. Note: this one does NOT have the problems encountered in at least two other JT tab books; i.e., tab positions in this book are relative to the capo (as they should be), not actual.
