      Excellent choice of repertoire that appeals to today's teenagers.
      The pieces are well set out with interesting and supportive backing tracks.
      Many of my pupils have already improved in their playing and using listening skills to accompany the tracks.
      A great resource for GCSE long overdue!
      Not particularly.
      Maybe some more current artists could be featured in a 2nd book?
      Eg Adele Ed Sheeran Jessie J The Killers Stereophonics Elbow to name a few!
