5.0 out of 5 stars save years of fruitless chord rummaging... 2 Feb 2003
By Neil
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - a proper chord-book 12 Dec 2007
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.

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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected 19 Feb 2008
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best I've found 19 Dec 2007
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An indespensible guide! 17 Feb 2005
If you are a guitarist, who like the beatles do not hesistate to buy this book. It is fully comprehensive in providing the chord arrangements on guitar for every Beatles song released.
My only complaint is that some song are lead guitar based, or do not suit chord-playing (ie within you without you), but the book never claimed to cover lead playing only chords.
This book does exactly what it does on the tin, there are no hidden surprises inside; this should be enough for you to decide if yuo want this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars What is in the book is great. 27 Feb 2007
The songs are all in the orginal keys and all sound spot on. Unfortunately Twist and Shout is not in this complete songbook. If you are able to find Twist and Shout elsewhere then this is a great book to buy and learn from.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not always the best chord choice.
In fairness it has the words and a fair set of chords. However, I feel some are over simplified and do not produce the sound of the song. Read more

Some song tabulature is over complicated.. I find the chord changes next to impossible to make for a large majority of the songs.
