- This really does have all the Beatles songs, and most of them appear to be in the correct key and structure. They are simplified versions but the harmonies are mostly correct (some bass lines have been simplified and lots of middle texture omitted). This collection works well either for those looking for a fairly simple way to play Beatles songs or for those who just need an outline chart but can expand and improvise around it to create the full feel of the original songs. Pages are clearly set out (you will need to be adept at using repeat signs, DS and 1st/2nd time bars), and there are no page turns needed anywhere!
- Purists will dislike the alterations to harmony / bass line shape etc. which occur from time to time. The words are a little on the small side to read quickly in performance (so be good and learn them before you perform!).
