    Difficulty Level:
  • October 13, 2004 Great book

    The best tab book I have ever seen. The songs sound so cool when Albert plays them, yet they are suprisingly easy for the average guitarist to play. Crosscut saw is my personal favorite in the book. The only problem with the book is that Albert plays with a strange...

    tuning that takes a while to get down. Overall, the best book I have bought yet.
