    As John K. states on the CD, the songs are ment to be simple but very elegant. The play alongs allow you to either emulate his playing or have the freedom to create your own ideas. All the songs in the book are classics and I really enjoy playing along...

    with them.........Thanks a million John Klemmer, GREG
