        Some popular pieces are in this collection.
        The arrangements are too simplistic and often miss important chord progressions.

        Washington, UK GB Female, ancient but fun.
        There are many tunes and songs in this music book, all relatively easy to play.

        A good book to have in ones piano music box.
        As the book is quite thick it is difficult to keep it open when playing music from the middle or end of the book.
