4.0 out of 5 stars A good mix 23 Sep 2008
Format:Paperback
A nice selection of songs in a book that will lay flat on a music stand without falling apart.
All songs are on two pages, so no page turning and there is a handy pullout chord chart at the back.
If you are approaching that age when the eyesight is going, the text is small, but then it is called the little black songbook so what do you expect !?

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Black book - big fun! 2 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
I bought this as a christmas gift for my brother-in-law and have recently been assured that it has been well used since being unwrapped. My niece has also been discovering the great fun to be had with this little gem. Highly entertaining and good fun for beginners and those who like a sing song of an evening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to pick up and play 26 Oct 2008
Format:Paperback
Great selection of songs for a range of abilities. Comes with a pull-out chord finder that contains most, but not all of the chords used in the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent companion 12 Mar 2010
By Foogz
Format:Paperback
Being a learner, I'm keen to try to improve as quickly as possible.
Memorising and practising your chords is one thing, but nothing gets you learning them faster (not least to say much more enjoyably) than playing songs.

This little book is an excellent accompaniment whether you're an experienced player looking to expand your repertoire, or a beginner like me.

There will be songs inside that everyone knows, Bob Dylan, Beatles, The Cure, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash - honestly, something for everyone.

The difficulty of the songs is wide ranging, some of them not requiring more than 3 or 4 major chords, while others might tax even an experienced guitarist.

As others have stated, the pages happily stay open on your lap, and the vast majority of the songs span only two pages, so you rarely need to turn mid-way.

And also, incredibly helpfully, there is a fold-out chord chart in the back of the book that extends in such a way that you can have it open at the same time as the song you are playing. Be warned though, being a small book, the chart does require fairly close observation as the symbols are quite small, but regardless it's an excellent extra.

This is one to keep in your guitar bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic hit songs review 18 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
i always find myself thumbing through these sort of books as i loose interest very quick. I like to play by ear as i've always been lazy with learning chords etc. But this book got me hooked within minutes as it's very simple but effective. things like 'streets of london' by Ralph Mctell, a song i've listened to for years and always wanted to play, no lie i had it within 15 minutes. There are some great songs in here (as well as a couple that dont float my boat, Dolly parton!) but hey each to their own. I would really recommend it, great chord diagrame fold out at the back to help with the chords you dont know, so yep....go for it and have fun

4.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you read the description 29 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't make the same mistake I did, especially if, like me, you wear reading glasses. This book is A5 size (I imagined it was A4). Other than that, this book was exactly what I was expecting

4.0 out of 5 stars Small but brilliant! 9 May 2011
By Megz
Format:Paperback
Bought this as I've just moved to university and didn't want to take masses of music with me. This is a small and handy book, great for hanging out with friends as they can flick through and demand me to play 'their favourite song!' The chords aren't always easy, there is a range of levels. However there is a full chord chart in the back with diagrams on how to play these chords. Good diverse range of music from different eras, if I had one criticism it would be that the songs were a little too old for me, and there were a few I'd never heard of.

Couple of good songs in here but you cannot open the book properly because of the spine so isn't really fit for purpose. Content is great, quality is bad.
