    Difficulty Level:
  • 2003-01-08 00:00:00.0 WARNING!!! NOT ACCURATE!

    This tab book is not accurate to the original recordings. If you're wanting to play Hank William's songs on the guitar in his original form, this book would be a huge disappointment. I'm completely dissatisfied.

    Difficulty Level:
  • 2002-04-15 00:00:00.0 Not Transcribed From Original Recordings

    BEWARE! The transcribed songs in this songbook are not from the original Hank Williams songs. They are one man's (Sokolow's) interpretation of the songs, which does not accurately reflect the recordings. Each song is transcribed for flatpicking and fingerpicking, neither of which is very advanced. Do not purchase...

    this songbook if you are looking for tabs that come "as performed on the record." The flatpicking tabs are sketchy and the fingerstyle arrangements are so basic that beginners would laugh.
