I bought this book after reviewing the nice selection of popular songs that it contained and ones that I especially liked. I already had copies of some of these songs, but to have them all in one book really makes it very convenient and in the same standard/popular key
The music format is in traditional three staff notation, 2 concert key G-clefs and a bass clef, plus lyrics and guitar chord diagrams and in a easy to read size. Most songs have a typical 3+ bar Hal Leonard intro to them. The book takes up 300 pages and is a good deal for $7.
This book contains the best of the "Baby Boomer Generation" songs the ones that are memorable. I also have other books with some fashionable songs from the 60s and 70s that should be forgotten and buried - really poor stuff.
Anyway. I've enjoyed learning and playing many of these song so far. I look forward to learning the rest of my favorite songs that are in this book. I really like this book.
