At times, it seems as if books of guitar tab are a dying breed in music stores. With the advent of online tablature, we have seen more and more guitarists turning to their computer to find songs to play. So, when Hal Leonard recently issued a book called “Guitar Tab White Pages Play-Along”, we at West Music were skeptical as to anyone even taking the time to look at this book.
After taking a demo copy for a spin, the guys in our guitar department were hooked! We soon found teachers joining in. With 100 great rock songs, this book literally does rock! Not only is each song written in tab, but chord names, music notation, and lyrics are also included. Best of all, these are true transcriptions---not just results of someone guessing what the notes are!
This book comes with 6 CD’s that provide great background tracks for guitarists to play along with. The recordings are so fantastic that we can’t stop playing them in the store. Even without the guitar and vocal tracks in the recording, one can instantly tell what each song is. The CD’s are the best quality we have ever heard come out of a play-along set. Slow-down software is included on the CD’s, which means you can play them on your computer and slow down the tempo for easier learning. You get 100 songs for $39.99: that’s only .40 a song with a great quality play-along CD and software included! Stop in to your local West Music store today to check out this great book, or visit the following link for a complete listing of the songs in this AWESOME collection.
