    Difficulty Level:
  • April 03, 2023 Nice beginner book

    I like some of the tabs in this book, especially more of the traditional Irish or American songs. . Some songs are presented just as a rough chord chart type of thing , with a brief solo in tab form. Slightly disappointing, but I don't regret buying it.

    This book was purchase as my first formal song book. Howerver, the book contains complex tab notations that are not well explained. I have only playing for 1 year and despite a desire to learn and play more songs, this book will gather dust for at least a few more...

    years. Not a good use of my money
