HASH(0x940de780) out of 5 stars Learn from the Best 14 Jun. 2012
By Antipholous S - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is great for fans of John Fahey's style and of the fingerpicking style in general. The book includes some of Fahey's most recognized tunes and are included in tab and standard notation. If you are comfortable with both types of notation, learning these songs should be easy and fun.

If you are on this page, its likely that you are already a follower of Fahey's style. Apart from the songs contained in the book, which I assume most of you are already intimately familiar with and love, the book contains a wonderful article written about John Fahey that covers just about every aspect of the man. Moreover, the book includes 3 audio discs of Fahey's guidance through particular techniques, methods, and theories. These treasures are what really make this book distinct from other music instruction book and far more of a personal experience.

HASH(0x940de9a8) out of 5 stars Fahey's Genius 19 Mar. 2006
By Kevin - Published on Amazon.com
If you enjoy John Fahey's music and want to learn a few of his songs I highly suggest you buy this book. Take a look at the baby is a song structured around simple chords, but is not easy to learn. Once you get his playing style down the songs become easier to learn and are very enjoyable to play. Buy this book and enjoy the genius of John Fahey.

HASH(0x940dea8c) out of 5 stars Excellent book 22 Mar. 2009
By H.B. Goode - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a very useful introduction to Fahey's playing style. He takes you step by step through each piece and explains his picking technique in great detail. He has a very relaxed and open-minded teaching approach. I found it encouraging that he doesn't insist that his pieces should be played or interpreted in one way. After learning several of the songs in this book, I feel like have a good foundation for learning more Fahey tunes.
HASH(0x940dec00) out of 5 stars which makes the book a complete waste. There are better tabs out there on the ... 1 July 2016
By Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Many of the tabs here are way off; for example, In Christ There is No East or West, the fast section is missing several notes. Ditto with other tunes. Fahey may be playing these songs on the CDs, but the actual transcriptions are incorrect, which makes the book a complete waste. There are better tabs out there on the internet, even.
HASH(0x940def3c) out of 5 stars Accurate Tablature 18 April 2013
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com

Easy to read and is accurate. I haven't checked out the CD's yet. The tablature is written in a style I haven't seen before where the finger placement is between lines instead of on the lines. Different for me at first, but easy to read. Nice book.
