This Little Black Songbook is a pocket-sized collection of 90 classic Beach Boys songs presented in chord songbook format, with Guitar chord boxes and complete lyrics. Learn all of the best tunes from one of the greatest pop bands ever.

Look inside this pint-sized Beach Boys songbook and you'll find everything you need to start playing all the songs you could ever want by this incredible quintet of genius songwriters and virtuoso singers. Songs like the immortal God Only Knows, Surfin' USA, Barbara Ann and Good Vibrations are included, reading like a list of some of the greatest songs of all time! The Little Black Songbooks represent the best of a particular artist in an easy-to-use format, giving you the chords and lyrics so you can get playing and harmonising like Wilson brothers.

Since their inception in 1961, The Beach Boys transformed their sound from simple surf rock to pop balladry, psychedelia, rock and roll and doo-wop with intricate arrangements, multi-layered harmonies and some simply divine production. Their influence on modern music has been incomparable, turning pop music from something bland and dry to something incredibly well-composed and hugely beautiful. Their album 'Pet Sounds', all the songs of which are featured here, was named by Paul McCartney as the primary inspiration for one of the greatest albums of all time, 'Sgt. Pepper'. If this band influenced The Beatles, then they must be great!

With an impeccable back catalogue, The Beach Boys have gone down in history as the producers of some of the greatest songs ever written. If that isn't incentive enough to pick up the Little Black Songbook, perhaps just the fact that with this Beach Boys chord book, you can sing and play 90 of their incredible tunes with ease, from the lyrics, chord symbols and chord boxes. Not only this, but all the songs are in the original keys so you can play along with the record. 

So pick up the Little Black Songbook: The Beach Boys today and channel that '60s California surfer vibe with your very own instrument!

      A really good guide to performing those Beach Boys' songs. They're notated in the original key, facilitating playing along. I wholeheartedly recommend the whole "Little Black Songbook" series.
