Fantastic Book, But Missing A Few Songs In My Opinion

As a collector of guitar tablature books, more for their accuracy than me being limited to tab only reading, I decided to purchase this book from a local Guitar Center tonight. What's great is they will price match to Amazon, so you get the benefit of retail store convenience at Internet discount pricing. Make no mistake, this is an expensive book, and Amazon's discount is significant, so I was happy Guitar Center would honor Amazon's price. Even without the price match the book is probably worth the retail price, as it does include lots of songs and the transcriptions are very well done.
It should be every professional transcriber's duty to study intimately the artist they are transcribing. This way they can learn the various techniques that might not have been obvious upon a first listen. Unfortunately all too often transcribers don't go that extra step, and you wind up with books that are clearly not accurate, and certainly not representative of the techniques employed... read more
Accurate, but with flaws.

The transcriptions in this book are very accurate, and in some parts even goes in depth into explain somethings, like pointing out notes that are really tape echo, and explaining why the G changes from beat one in the first two verses to beat two in the third verse onward in Dazed and Confused.
It's also very complete, including all of the guitar parts, and in some places transcribing other instruments for guitar.
However, there are some glaring errors in this book. There are places where the tablature does not match the notes that are written above. I've noticed this in several places throughout the book, and usually the notation is correct. So, if you only read tab, you might run into some problems in some spots. Either way, watch out for the mistakes.
Overall, I don't think you'll be disappointed. But, they could have spent a little more time proofreading before going to press.

This is a great book to start learning Led Zeppelin. The selection of songs is perfect, just about everything you would want in one place. The format is guitar/TAB. Lyrics and solos included.
