    the arrangements sound great. melodies are on separate line so you have to sing along, and I can't sing that high. songs are put together as intro, chorus, bridge, etc so you have to put it together to make a whole song. this is a good book if you...

    want to play authentic sounding Elton John, some of his old classics.
