   A great selection of songs and easy to read and play.
Rarely '' find a music book that contains many songs that I like and want to play. Usually there are two or so songs, but this book is full of great songs. I love Moon River '' and play it on a Suzuki tremolo. Others I play on the Hohner Blue Midnight or in my Hohner Special 20. It is the first songs to play, and I am a beginner. I really recommend ''. You can dress any of the songs with bends and other flourishes as you get better. It will therefore be my go-to book for a long time.
   Great Songs / Varied Skill Levels / Difficult to See
In all, I am very disappointed in what could have been a great music book. I am a little farsighted and while I can see the staffnotes easily, I have to keep the book about 10 inches from my face to read the tabs and lyrics, because the font is so faint. Since I bought the book for the tabs, this renders a good book almost insignificant to me. Would give a 55 - review if they used a bolder font to increase the contrast.
   This gets you a repertoire for all occasions
Put your harmonica in your pocket and play with these songs anytime. Play many other instruments, but the harmonica is definitely the most user friendly and easy to stick with.
   check the song list first
The songs are pretty easy to learn and sound pretty good, but the selection of songs is still full of the kind of songs I find dull and too old to hold my interest. Don 't get me wrong, there are some good ones and some would be nice for young kids, but to keep my interest I want to play songs I have in my collection, be they old blues songs or rock. It may be good for you, but check the table of contents before buying.
   As is with these....
Well, as with these things, there are lots of pieces in the book that I am not a fan of. Having said that, there is a notation at the bottom of each page that states that harmonica sounds are an octave higher than written. I don 't get it. I have a C - Scale Harp and the book is written for this scale. I realize that harmonicas are a bit limited, but am not quite hearing that higher octave thing, perhaps my ears are not used to it yet. When I play it, the stuff actually sounds ok to me. I was able to press it back, but who knows how long it will stay together.
Oddly, even when you're singing on a harmonica for fun, it sounds like a real song. Bought this book to go on his Christmas list with Harmona. He was happy about the harmonica but not psyched about the book. Awww declared. Kiddo is sorry.
   I need help finding the sound files
I bought this song book just. The download went well and appears in my Kindle FIRE very readable. I thought that sound files of various tunes would be available for download as well, as most kindle music books provide such files. I can not find any link to sound files in the Hal Leonard book or on the Kindle website? I placed my review at a one star rating in the hope that some help with finding the sound files might be forthcoming. The book is much better than a star and I would be happy to increase my rating to 5 stars.
   Good songs; but annoying lay-out.
This comment is in reference to the Kindle edition, as mentioned by another reviewer, the copyright information is LARGE. Until I purchased it, I don 't believe how large it was. What a mistake! You can see it attached for yourself pictures, but I can not see the music as it is much smaller and much larger than the LARGE - Copyright - Info.
   Pretty good, but for more advanced players
Most songs are in the wrong key. Its one octave is higher. I teach myself and just finished the Absolute Beginner for Harmoni. After finishing it, it felt good. This book is a lot of hard. I think that a CD with the songs would make this book 5 out of 5 stars. I am still able to learn songs from this book, but it takes more time and me - youtubing songs to see how the should sound on Harmonica.
