TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 15 September 2017
I purchased this book for nostalgic reasons, because the graphics are identical to those contained in the original Beatles Complete version, which I owned in the 1960s (and no longer have). If I recall correctly, the original one that I owned was not an “Easy Guitar” version, but a far more complex beast, more appropriate to the demands of a concert pianist than a guitarist.

In those days, until the appearance of the original Beatles Complete version, the only access one had to Beatles scores was via sheet music of specific recordings and compilation Souvenir Beatles Song Albums (produced by Northern Songs) containing several LP based hits. These were predominantly vocal/piano versions supported by guitar chords, as was the norm for the publication of most music in those days.

Bearing in mind that there are so many excellent scores of Beatles music available to today’s guitarists, serving all ability levels and, in some cases, matching closely what can be heard in their recordings, it would not be difficult to find a Beatles compilation that does the job better than Beatles Complete does.

Consequently, the Easy Guitar and other versions of Beatles Complete will be remembered affectionately by those, such as myself, who remember what it meant to them in the past, but for today’s purists looking for something that better serves their guitar playing, they will not have to look too far before they find it.

Not bad, very simplified versions of the Beatles tracks, some of the songs in here have most of the memorable bits of the songs missing... A Day In The Life for example... some of the chords used are simplified from the originals so you do loose something when playing from this book (especially if you know and love the Beatles as we do) but all in all its not bad for beginners or just a little 'flip open the book and play' kinda jam...

I used to have this book years ago and lost it somewhere along the way. The book is great, but the quality of the paper in this edition is very poor so quite disappointing...

This re-print of the Beatles Complete song book confused me. Why are songs from The Wings in the book?
Paul McCartney wasn't the only Beatles member. Why can't the book be left original?

Not quite as complete as I hoped e.g. where is Imagine?
