I have had 'the definitive Bob Dylan songbook' now for two days and sadly have been sitting with it for as long as time allows. Of course I am a huge Dylan fan appreciating the early days stuff to the latter. Whatever song appears in my head I flick to the index at the front of the book and it is there, the book caters for every era in Dylans career and I cannot see why anybody could realistically be dissapointed in this songbook.The only song that I would have liked to learn, that is not in the book is 'Moonshiner'off of the Bootleg series. Which is a shame but thats just me being picky.
The pages are very thin, so you have to be careful when turning them that you dont rip them, but they always fall nicely so that the lyrics and chords can be viewed easily.
I got this book as a birthday present from my friends and am very, very pleased with it. I would honestly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good strum and loves Dylans lyrics. Every classic song of every classic album is here.
Even if you are not the biggest Dylan fan in the round world its still a very good lesson in songwriting, but dont take my word for granted, go on you know you wanna learn some dylan tunes, and then some more!

fantastic for lyrics and quantity of songs. pages stay open nicely. however, many of the songs have completely the wrong chords. none consider open tunings or capo placements(...so a song originally played in d with a capo on 1 is here listed in Eb thus rendering playing bob dylan style strums pretty impractical unless you put that capo on and figure out the proper chords for yourself. i wouldn't recommend it.

I have been looking for a while for a book which has all the lyrics to his songs- and i have found it! It is very clear to read and has all the great songs that i was after. I thoroughly recommend it!

I've bought several books of sheet music of Bob's over the years, but they've all been metaphorically chucked out of the window since the release of this epic tome. Unpretentious and complete, it is now possible to seek out all of those classics and,perhaps more importantly, those little nuggets that mean something special to you but not your average compiler, pick up your guitar and play them.

What more can us mere mortals ask for? A private gig by Bob in the back garden? Oh go on then.....

As another reviewer noted, the chords just aren't right in half of these songs. For example I tried playing "Shelter from the storm" which was down as D, A, G, D, I listened to the track and it's actually E, B, A, E. There's nothing mentioned about a capo or a different tuning it's just wrong. There's a lot in this book but you may find yourself penning in the correct chords.

Bought this as a beginner to learn to strum some good quality songs. Because tabs are wrong or poorly annotated this has been a waste of money.
