      Great book, very well done.
      You can be as critical about this book as you want to, all I can say is it's wonderful. I live in a very small town in the middle of Iowa, no guitar instructors anywhere....very frustrating. About 8 years ago I bought this book.... I was on the brink of giving up guitar all together and thought I would give it one last try through the music of the Beatles. Now I play in two bands, one playing acoustic guitar and the other strictly bass. I taught myself, with help of this book, every chord and every bass line I could handle and now I apply those concepts in every song I play. I also teach guitar to teenage kids!! Who would have known. The chord and bass line tabs were the most help to me. It's worth every penny. I might have to buy another one because this one is about fried.

      A great full volume Beatles classic song book. I wished the lyrics were large enough to see. Even with the aid of eyeglasses still its not possible to read them. Impossible to play along and read the words even from A FOOT away. I thank Musician's Friends for their upmost dedication to customers. I was able to return it with no problems! A great company to deal with. What a pleasure to talk to a real personable caring customer service representative!

      This is a marvelous music book when you consider the content. But the music is small and difficult to read.

        Very impressive book. Every Beatles song is here. I expected it to be larger in size than it is because the print is rather small, but I can scan it into my computer and enlarge the print when I need to.

          Comments about Hal Leonard The Beatles Complete Scores Book:

          This book is the #1 reason I play as well as I do today.

          If you are an intermediate player who grew up in the Beatles era, you will find it easy to pick up on many of the songs. And you will quickly learn SO MUCH that it will boost your overall abilities. I mean, you already know these riffs and melodies so well (probably more than you realize, and even if you weren't their biggest fan) that many of them come easily. And that gives you the incentive to work out the harder parts, so as to play complete songs, which will develop your skills at an amazing rate. Get stuck on one song? Put it "on a shelf" and turn a few pages. There is so much material here that inspiration will soon hit you again.

          This book will be even more valuable to those who can read standard notation, as you can learn some of the other instruments' parts. And if you ARE a Beatles freak, it can give you insights as to what's really going on in any given song.

                The Ultimate Beatles Book

                Comments about Hal Leonard The Beatles Complete Scores Book:

                This book is great. It has every song except 3- Free as a Bird, Real Love, and My Bonnie. There's a few errors in the book, but nothing major. It has every single part too like piccolo trumpet, strings, sitar,tambora etc... If you're a Beatlemanic you need to buy it.

                The closest thing to completion

                By R.J.-N1KuJ

                from Cotati, CA

                Comments about Hal Leonard The Beatles Complete Scores Book:

                Many of the reviewers have commented on the print size and structure of this book, and for the most part they are all correct. This is a technical score written in condensed jazz style (handwritten-ish). Tab is only available for guitar and bass parts, everything else is written in standard notation. String parts are often lumped together on the same staff as are horn parts etc. All of which are written in concert pitch, not the key of the instrument itself (i.e. Bb trumpet is written in C).And while the cover totes it is EVERY song, it isn't. Nothing from the Anthology Series ("Real Love" and "Free As A Bird" in particular) or the BBC Radio Discs are included (there were plenty of songs on those CDs that didn't appear in other forms). What it does have is every song released on the standard Beatles CD collection from "Please Please Me" to "Let It Be" and the Past Masters discs too.This isn't for carrying around, it's a big heavy slipcase hardcover. It's pretty much for reference only, or as a display for the non-musical. But for what it is, it's the best option you have.
