  • November 22, 2007 Best of G.B is very good

    I think that it is very very product. The only real drawback is that the sheet music to a number of the songs are incomplete.

    This book does a great job, especially on the cd. The guitarist can actually play the things in the book. I have the original recordings by Benson and this guy does a FANTASTIC JOB.

  • February 18, 2003 George is human after all!

    great selection included several of my favourites. Not performed by George on the CD but it was nice to hear someone else performing his stuff, proves it can be done by mortals. The notes for each piece were also useful.
