  • This book is really great. It is exactly what you would hope for. It has tab and standard notation with an explanation of all the guitar tab notations and a list of all the chords in the back. It also has some extra tips on how to play parts of each of the songs. These songs are a little harder than you would think. If you are brand new to playing, this is not the book for you. If you know how to play and you like these songs, then you should definitely get this book!
    This book is larger than I had expected. It is about an inch larger length and width than a sheet of printer paper, but this is good because it shows more music on each page.
    I really wanted to see this before I bought this book, so here it is for you. I got this list off of another website, but a few of the songs on the list were incorrect, so i fixed the list

  • I wish that I could have seen just what songs this book had before I bought it. While the songs range from the 60's to the 80's in style, most of the songs aren't my favorite songs although I do like Walk Don't Run (the Ventures), Sunshine of Your Love (Cream), and Won't Be Fooled Again (the Who). The others I could live without.

    However, over all this is a very good book to have around for intermediate to advanced guitar players. If you are a beginner I wouldn't quite recommend this book as most of the music is fairly advanced. This shouldn't come as a surprise as the music was written by accomplished rock musicians and played by accomplished rock musicians. The book tries to help by providing notes at the beginning of the book about many of the songs on the techniques involved and how these songs should be played but still, this is not a book for rank amateurs unless someone with more experience is around to help answer a few questions.

    But given the short supply of rock music with both standard music notation and tablature, this book is a good resource for a few good songs to learn such as Hit Me With Your Best Shot, I want You To Want Me, Message In A Bottle, The Boys Are Back In Town, Shattered, Born To Be Wild, and others. Also, what would really help this book is a CD of the songs like those found in the Guitar For Dummies and Rock Guitar For Dummies books, but sadly, I guess for contractual reasons, no CD of the songs is offered here although there could be cover versions but we don't even get those. So for lack of a CD and the limited number of hot rock songs, I give this book only four stars.

  • Good rock song choices .....I Want You to Want Me by Cheap Trick.....Hey Joe by J. Henxrix......Refugee by Tom Petty....many more....was worth the purchase price!

  • perfect for the beginner

  • this book has it all. From humor to the selection of songs to the tips and trivia of each song. I'll buy more of these when I need it for a reference. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it)

  • I bought this in conjunction with the Rock Bass Songs for Dummies, as a musician it tells me all the little nuances that fascinate me. Really good solid book.
