    Brooklyn, New York
    Difficulty Level:
  • May 23, 2014 Excellent For Bassists

    For practicing purposes, particularly sight-reading practice, this book is excellent. Lot's of not so obscure tunes, with most of the instrumental parts written out. Not just piano charts. Some tunes even have individual charts for bass and guitar. Very accurate and cleanly written.

    Early intermediate
  • February 24, 2008 Steady Freddy!

    This is a steady, dependable fake book: lots of variety, mostly accurate chord changes, etc. In addition to an alpha index, songs are listed by artist &/or group. Very handy! It's nice to have a spiral book, easier to turn the pages! The drawback is the corresponding fake books...

    (b-flat, e-flat) don't have all of the same songs! Disappointing when you're jammin'
