If you're beyond the absolute beginning stage of guitar or you're looking for a book with accurate guitar riffs like you hear in their songs, this is not it.
If you're just learning guitar and using a book like Hal Leonard's Guitar Method and you're tired of playing "Ode To Joy" and "Tom Dooley", this is a great compliment. It starts with notes on the 1st string and keeps building until you're playing all 6 strings while including some basic music theory and chords as you go.
The Beatles songs are very basic and easy. The first song in the book is "With a Little Help From My Friends" and is played with 6 notes on the first 3 strings. As I said before, this is a "learn to play guitar" book that uses Beatles songs instead of the standards in many other books (although it does have a few of the standards near the beginning).
The song list: *All My Loving*, *And I Love Her*, *Eight Days A Week*, *Eleanor Rigby*, *The Fool On the Hill*, *Here, There and Everywhere*, *Hey Jude*, *I Am the Walrus*, *It's Only Love*, *Michelle*, *Norwegian Wood*, *Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da*, *Paperback Writer*, *Penny Lane*, *Rain*, *Revolution*, *Sgt. Pepper*, *With a Little Help from My Friends*, *Yellow Submarine*, *Yesterday*, *You've Got To Hide Your Love Away*.
It also includes a 64 track CD that you can play along with (basic guitar and drums accompaniment, not the actual Beatle tracks).
Excellent book for the beginner if you want some song variety while learning. 4 stars because I would have liked to see a spiral binding
