    Difficulty Level:
    Early intermediate
  • May 14, 2011 Not for the fundi.

    This compilation has all the songs you would want. However, as only melody lines, lyrics and chords are provided, it is not for the serious musician. Some of the chords are over-simplified, and some are totally incorrect. If you know the songs well enough, you will spot the wrong...

    chords, but then you wouldn't need this book anyway. What's missing is the melodic accompaniment which often proves vital to the overall feel of the songs. This book is fine for the beginner or weekend musician, but there is nothing in the book which cannot be downloaded free on the internet.
