Not quite what I expected, a little too advanced. Overall though, it's good to have all the songs. Packaging could be better, one corner of the book was mashed in. A wrap of bubble wrap would have helped it get here in better shape. The book already has "character" and I haven't even used it yet. Ha! Ha!
As others have commented, this book has it all from instrumental parts to vocal harmonies. The down side is that it is in a hardback book format with a 5-pt font that is virtually unreadable and tiny. There is no way you will be able to put this book on your music stand and play. You will likely not only need to photocopy the pages (which is forbidden), but will probably want to expand them to 3x the printed size!
Simply put, this is everything a player of any instrument needs to play any Beatle song. What else is there?
At first I was a bit hesitant about buying this, considering the price, but I did and couldn't be happier. It has every song the Beatles ever recorded (even Covers of other peoples songs. It also includes the music to every instrument in each song, everything from horns and strings to cow bells and tambourines. You can completely recreate the songs or sit around a campfire with Acoustic guitars and play them raw - It includes easy to read Tabs and Chords as well as full sheet music. You will love this, So stop reading this review and "Add to Cart"!
Just got this book. It is great. A lot of people are saying that the print is really small. Those people are called "the blind". The print is a good size. It is smaller than most tabs i have seen but what do you expect; it's the complete scores for every beatles song ever. If you want it to have normal size print you would have a book bigger than you're guitar. If you can't see it than get glasses. This is a must get for any beatles fan. It has everything you could ever possibly want to know about a beatles song: guitar, bass, drums, vocals, harmonies, as well as all the different things like trumpets. To sum it all up: get it!
I got this book for my birthday 2 years ago, and being a huge Beatles fan, I was really excited. Without this book, I would not be able to play guitar. I would just go through the book, listen to the song, and try and play along with the tabs until I could do so. The reason I marked the quality down is because after 2 years of lying the book open on a flat surface, the cover is almost seperated from the pages. I wish they would release this same book in multiple volumes, maybe even a book for each album - that would be cool. But anyway, this book is amazing, the music is there for EVERY instrument that the Beatles recorded, which is something you will not find in any other book. I have found a few mistakes in the music, but hey, that's understandable. Over 200 songs for a very cheap price. BUY IT!!!
This is a great book and you can sit around for hours just learning all the guitar parts. The book has all the parts for all the instruments used on the song, everything from guitar (with Tab and regular music) to the french horn. The only problem I can think of for this is that the spine of the book is very weak, mine came broken and so it makes it very fragile. You will have to be careful with it, but it is definetly worth it for any Beatles fan.
I originally purchased this book for my father but it never made it's way to him! I started flipping through it with my guitar in my lap and couldn't put it down. If you're not in a band, having the score for EVERY instrument may be a bit much, but as a guitarist and Beatles fan - there is no better tab collection out there. It is dead-on accurate and as comprehensive as they come. Buy this book!
My friend has one of these and I looked at it a little bit. It has the music for every instrument played in every one of The Beatles' songs. And the price is great for the number of songs you get!
