This book gives you strum patterns, capo placements, chords, finger placement and tabs for each song. I am very new to playing the guitar. I have only been playing for 3 weeks so my chord changing speed prevents me from playing most songs smoothly. However I keep practicing and am getting better. Practice makes perfect! If you can already pick up strum patterns quickly and can change chords at a decent pace you should be able to play any song in this book. I highly recommend this and any Hal Leonard book.
