      This book like the two earlier books about Kyle Creed & Wade Ward, captures much detail in the tablature. If you combine the exact transcriptions with Dan Levenson's versions you will get more ideas for how to play the tunes. In combination with hearing the source recordings it is especially helpful.
      1. I would have preferred that the authors had selected a few other tunes and versions.
      2. Some of the original recordings are not easy to find anymore, so they require a bit detective work if you want to hear them.
