4.0 out of 5 stars Not as detailed as a full score, but good enough, 8 Jan 2010
This review is from: The Beatles Complete: Guitar/Vocal Edition (Paperback)
Unlike the other Wise Publications Beatles songbook (with the psychedelic face artwork on the cover), this book contains every Beatles song, including those written by George Harrison.

Yes, they are not all in their original keys, but I think this was to make it easier to read and play for less-than-masters of music. After all, why print a song in Gb or C# when you can write it in the far easier keys of G and C, just to be pedantic?

It would have been nice if they had included, for instance, the vocal harmonies on Because; but ultimately this book serves its purpose as a songbook. It's great for just whipping out and learning a Beatles song to busk or play for pleasure. There aren't any chord shapes included (at least in the edition I have, bought last week), but the guitar chords are all given apart from one or two which have been mysteriously left out. However, those that have been left out are parts of phrases repeated later in the page, so it's a simple thing to write in the missing chord.

You couldn't really expect more from this book, and it does its job well enough.
