The durable and practical Gig Book contains 101 Hits from the past 60 years. Some of the greatest songs ever are included here with lyrics, chord boxes and melody line so that you can start playing and singing straight away.

The great thing about a book like this Gig Book is the sheer scale of the songs inside. These are the songs that were written over half a century ago, and are still everyone's favourites today. Also included are those songs that were written in the past few years and immediately clicked with everybody, instantly joining the ranks of the all-time greats. In here, you'll find songs like God Only Knows, Son Of A Preacher Man, Stand By Me and Your Song. These are the tunes that are the eternal crowd-pleasers, the ones that everyone loves and everyone wants to hear. Now, with this classic hit song book, you can sing and play them for all to enjoy.

These Gig Books are a really handy size for just stuffing in your gig bag, and each features a PVC cover that is strong and tough, meaning no matter how much you use the book (and with this selection, it's going to be a lot!), it'll always be there for you whenever you need it. Looking at the size of the Gig Book, it screams convenience and practicality, so it's a wonder we've actually managed to condense the biggest names, the most monumental singers and such gargantuan songwriters into such a portable book. 

Names like Roy Orbison, Paul Simon, The Beatles and Prince rub shoulders with contemporary greats like The Killers, Coldplay and Justin Timberlake, making the contents list of this song book read like a rundown of probably the best musicians ever. For singers, guitarists, keyboardists and many other instrumentalists, this hit song book will be a staple of your repertoire for many years to come, while also featuring some black and white photographs for inspiration. If you are looking to busk, perform at parties, or just learn the songs for your own enjoyment, then pick up the Gig Book now and satisfy your eagerness to play these 101 Hits.
