Comments about Hal Leonard Nickel Creek Why Should the Fire Die? Transcribed Score:
I bought this because it claimed to have transcriptions of all parts. While it does have each part, they are not in the form I would have expected. The guitar parts are in tab form (as they should be), but the mandolin parts are in plain old piano style score! Seriously, who plays the mandolin straight from score? I was hoping to pick up a few of Chris Thile's mandolin licks from this thing, but that is imposible to do from score. Score only tells you the NOTE that is being played. That is not useful on the mandolin, as each note can be played at different positions on different strings. So in the end, I give this a 5 because it may be useful for guitarists, but it is completely useless for the mandolin.
