Play guitar and sing along with the 'soundalike' backing tracks in this great book and CD package. Each song is arranged in full guitar tablature, with chord symbols and lyrics, and has two demo tracks on the accompanying CD. One track is a full performance demo with the vocals omitted, the other is a backing track with the guitar part removed, so you can play along.
This is very accurate with songs that cater for a range of talent ('America' for beginners, 'The Boxer' for Intermediate/Advanced) and I would give it a five but the CD lets it down. They’ve made the arrangements as complex as the original recordings and it makes some guitar parts hard to make out and if you’re a 'learn by listening' kind of guy it can be frustrating. That said, it's still worth the cash as there’s plenty to chew over.

Acoustic guitar at it's best.
This book offers some great songs, using different guitar playing styles.
The accompanying CD is a welcome support to teach you how to play these songs, because sometimes it's hard playing a song the right way if you only have tablature.
Well worth buying.
