      A good mix of tunes, with enough unfamilar songs to challenge the guitarist.

      A great compact little book you can slip in your back pocket and simply pick a song every now and then to practise! Simple standard chord diagrams too. A lot of songs in a little space!

      Vraiment top!! Surtout pour s'accompagner ou se faire accompagner au chant. Les tablatures, en tout cas celles que j'ai utilisées, sont exactes.

      I like this book so much I decided to buy a second copy as a Christmas present for a friend.

      This book is for a Christmas present so has not been used. It is a gift for our son who is learning to play the guitar. My husband is a seasoned guitarist and has looked through the book and rated it as good - simple and effective.

      Great book, let down by a very stiff spine, so it won't stay open. Not even a small weight works to keep the page open so u can play from it. My brilliant solution…I went to an Business Bureau any they cut off the spine and put in a spiral wire binding. Now the book is perfect. Th wire binging cost £3.

      Pas très pratique pour bien tenir sur un pupitre. Sinon rien a dire

      This is a great little book. It caters for most standards of playing, with good chord layouts. Has a great cross-section of songs which will please the majority of players. Will be investing in more from this series.

      This is a great little book, and is perfect if you have just started learning like I have! Great start to learning some amazing tunes.

      An excellent little book which will keep me entertained for years to come. I occasionally do acoustic covers gigs so this book has been a real godsend. The range of material is diverse with hits from each decade present.

      Great little book - many hours of fun to come!

      Un livret petit format avec un maximum de chansons. Facile à transporter et pratique grâce à un récapitulatif des accords. Les morceaux sont bien choisis et les accords fidèles aux sonorités. Il m'est devenu indispensable !

      This songbook is brilliant value, with a wide range of well known and melodic songs - nothing too obscure. The chords are easy to play but not overly easy - in other words, they sound just like the original (with nothing compromised). There are chord boxes at the back of the book - which would have been even beter if they had been placed at the beginning of each song (as they are in the Paul Simon songbook). This range is first-class and will provide hours of entertainment. It does what it says on the cover!

      Good to have so many songs in a small format when you have friends around allowing them to pick a song for you to play. To be picky I saw a previous review which said that you can place the open book on a music stand and it would stay open. I did not find this to be the case and need an elastic band sysytem to hold the book open.
