    Great songs,fun arrangements,not to difficult.Backing tracks are nice and simple,lets you improvise as you play along.the binding can be changed for about$4.50 to a spiral at office depot,works perfect.I bought all the books from 1920-1990's.

  • December 27, 2018 Great collection of tunes

    I bought this is an adjunct to my collection of Acoustic Rock tunes (Full disclosure, I added this to a small order to get free shipping). Song list is excellent and you get backing tracks for all tunes (good for practice, but a little bland for live play). I'd...

    like it better if it was spiral bound or notebook, but then again the cost per song was soooooo reasonable, that I'm going to use this book to craft my own arrangements. Again, the only thing is the binding... I'd give it 4.5 stars if possible.

  • July 28, 2017 Good memories

    Playing through this albmum brought back many good memories. Some well.known songs, some I had forgotten and some I probably haven't heard.Arrangements fits me well (playing organ with base pedals), and I found most songs easy to play.Only downside is the binding of the book. As...

    most music note books, the binding makes it very hard to keep the book open at the right page when playing. I would prefer a spiral binding!!
