Comments about Hal Leonard R & B Bible Bass Guitar Tab Songbook:

I give it straight 9's. Nothing is a 10! I highly recommend this book for any bassist who loves 60's Soul music and wants to get a leg up on playing these songs correctly. This is the most fun I've ever gotten out of the many sheet music compilations I've purchased and this one seems more accurate than the others I have and ever closer than vintage store bought single sheets I paid dearly for from collectors. For an Old School R&B geek like me, this compilation was like finding the Dead Sea Scrolls.

To whoever did all the work putting this together, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
This is my favorite Old School R&B sheet music book. It is packed with quality songs that people of all ages like to hear a band play live if you have the vocals to pull it off. These are some of the keystones that laid the foundation for the Stax/Volt, Atlantic, Motown legacy. "Ain't Too Proud To Beg," "I'll Take You There," "Respect," "I Got You (I Feel Good)," "Midnight Hour," "Knock On Wood," "Mustang Sally," "My Girl," "Soul Man" and "Higher and Higher" are evergreens that working bands around here play at about every gig. In addition to those songs that have been lots of fun for me, here are the rest of songs included in this very useful bass tab book: Nowhere To Run Ain't No Mountain High Enough Mr. Pitiful I Just Want To Celebrate I Want You Back (I'm A) Road Runner Born Under A Bad Sign Cool Jerk Green Onions I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) I Heard It Through The Grapevine I Was Made To Love Her Shop Around Stop! In The Name Of Love This Old Heart Of Mine (Is Weak For You) Uptight (Everything's Alright) What's Going On Hard To Handle Standing In The Shadows Of Love Bernadette Push And Pull Groove Me The music is presented in standard notation for people who read music, and if you don't read music it is also presented in tab. Tab is a very easy way to find the right note and you don't have to read music to play using the tab system but it isn't as fast as reading standard notation. Additionally all the lyrics are included, so the vocalists can FINALLY get the words right. If your band is going to do classic soul music, you might as well do it right and with this book you can be certain that you are getting it right.
Quality paper, clear crisp printing. The only way to improve this collection would be to spiral bind it. Right on transcriptions baby!
Good luck finding bass transcriptions of these songs which are this accurate at any price. To find all of them for like 50 cents each is a real good value.
