    I thought this book was in the easy play format but not so I find most alfreds books are not very user friendly and at some confusing the cost of returning the book to the states forced me to keep this now unused book it would be best seller if...

    it were in easy play

    Difficulty Level:
  • 2008-08-13 00:00:00.0 Good book - some songs not the versions you know

    Reasonable arrangements. Some songs - Cara Mia, Blue Moon, for example - were the original compositions, not the arrangements you remember from Jay and the Americans or the MarCells.

    Very good book and very good variety of songs. Transcriptions are true to the original and some songs even add in the intrumental parts. I have played piano, guitar and now keyboards for some 40 years on and off and am lost in the 60's.
