    very good, well done. it is a good challenge even for an advanced player. I just wish more of these play along sets would give us more songs in them for the money they want. And, there should be more of these kinds and levels of these kinds out for...

    sale. Us advanced players hardly get any music to buy from at our level, for they cater more to kids and not good players. I haven't found any more like this out there since buying this one to buy up and accumulate to my collection and repitoir.

    This book contains both soprano and alto parts. The songs will definately get your hands moving and there is some solo space. Have fun, keep playing, and work on the transposed solos!!

    There are both soprano and alto charts for you to do the lead part. Some take a bit of practice and some require ALOT of woodshedding, but the book and CD are AWESOME.
