As the main guitarist for progressive super-groups, Yes and Asia and as a solo Artist, Steve has not only proven himself to be a versatile virtuoso but he has also distinguished himself as a tasteful and creative musician. This folio captures some of Steve's most powerful and tasteful solo acoustic steel-string and nylon string guitar solos as well as his immortal electric guitar solo on "Sound Chaser." Some of the titles are: Clap * Mood for a Day * Ram * Diary of a Man Who Vanished * Meadow Rag * Surface Tension and an Excerpt from "The Ancient.".

  • August 16, 2009 Close but no cigar !

    The music of Steve Howe is always interesting and entertaining. The transcriptions in this book re-worked by Hemme Luttjeboer, Colgan Bryan, and even Mick Barker who did all of them originally in the early publication of this book long before tab are full of mistakes. Did these guys even...

    listen to the original recordings? Embarassing. Unfortunately this is all we have in print though by an interesting composer and guitarist.

  • May 12, 2005 great book of great music

    This book is not perfect, but it's far advanced over most books that cover recordings. It's closer to a classical music representation of the things Steve played than it is the old everything-at-first-position junk that floods the shelves. There is real insight into the musicality...

  • May 08, 2004 Great book, except for some things

    The book in general is well structured and is very interesting, though there are lots of mistakes in it (I fixed myself many things in Surface Tension, and it's missing lots of stuff on Diary of the Man Who Vanished, not mentionning the errors on that one). Otherwise the...

    book seems to be a good one to me. This book isn't for beginner guitarists, Steve Howe isn't a novice player in fingerstyle and instrumental stuff. I also suggest that you grab the recordings to make sure that you play the songs correctly ;)
