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.
