  • July 01, 2008 Faithful transcription

    As a huge fan of Elvis, I really like this one. I'm pretty new to acoustic guitar and most of these are pretty tough to play but there are a few that aren't too hard & it gives me something to aim for.

  • January 03, 2001 Nice Book

    If you are a Costello fan, you will like this book. The arrangements are very nice sounding. I have not been playing the piano very long, so it is a bit challenging, but the practice pays off quickly.

  • October 27, 2000 A must have for Elvis fans

    I've only been playing piano for 2 years, and I've already leared 3 of my favorite elvis songs in the 2 months I've had this song book . I'd say this is a great book for intermediate pianists who appreciate the music of Elvis Costello.
