Format: Paperback
At last, a properly worked-out Beatles transcription, of the kind the band deserves. Guitarists like me (ie not very good) will find it a massive boon. No more scratching about trying to transpose from the original recordings or the "Beatles Complete songbook" (what was it with them and E flat?). Wondering for years how the guitar part for "Dear Prudence" was done? Here's your answer. The author claims some of the chord structures have been simplified, but in reality most of it seems to be spot on.
The only question is - what took so long?

Format: Paperback
It is an absolute disgrace that many Beatles music books actually bear little resemblance to the actual Beatles music the Beatles produced. This book is excellent - it tells you the chords, the positions, in fact everything you need to be able to 'have a go' at playing a Beatles number with some kind of authenticity. Well done.

I've bought quite a few guitar song books in my time and must confess that this is the best to date. I've hardly stop playing these songs since it arrived. If you like the Beatles; like playing your guitar and want to progress from simple three chord songs, then you will not be disappointed with this. Have fun.

Format: Paperback
Great book. Every song lyric, with chords above text. No music, so you need to know the source pretty well, but, well, you should know the source pretty well anyway. The keys all match the recordings, so you can singalongaRingo if that's your thang. Not for beginners - too many D#msus12ths for that, but fine if you've done a couple of "My First Guitar Book" type guitar books. The blame for all the D#msus12ths must go to John Paul and George (not Ringo tho' - Octopuss's Garden's a sinch) and not the editor...

I have to say that this book is one of the most accurate tab books ive come across. Alot show chord positions that anyone who has seen any beatles concert can say they didn't really use. I would say that some songs like those composed on piano create difficult chord patterns on guitar but this is to be expected. Overall very good and accurate.

Format: Paperback
Well, where to start. It fits on my music stand but is a little thick if you are at the beginning or the end. That is really all there is to gripe about. The book itself is of good quality, sturdy and the pages are nice and thick, so it feels as though it will stand years of being thumbed through without falling apart. The content is far superior, in my opinion, to the other one with the very naff front picture. I had one of these many, many years ago and spent all my time transcribing the keys and chords into manageable sequences. This publication has no problems with that at all as it is in the original keys. Vocally challenging but not musically. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to have the non Lennon/McCartney songs inserted which is a shame as, like with Twist and Shout, this would have been the icing on the cake for any guitar playing officianado. But dont let this stop you buying it as it is a quality publication. Well done Ricky Rooksby and Wise Publications.

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By jbezzo VINE VOICE on 3 Aug. 2006
Format: Paperback
This compact volume must represent the best value for money of any compilation to date. Simply put it does what it says on the tin - two-hundred odd of the Fab Fours compositions in a single place, in the original keys, with chord diagrams and lyrics. What more can you say? Certainly there will be other books that will examine their guitar styles more fully, but as a book that will get you playing familiar and not so familiar Beatles tunes AND will fit in your guitar case - this can't be beaten
