    I want to buy a transcript book or two of Paul McCartney's Beatles basslines. Accuracy is more important to me than quantity of songs in a book.

    Accuracy , defined not just as the proper notes and rhythm but if tablature also the proper location to play them on the neck.

    What book(s) is most accurate , and are there any books I should avoid ?

  3. This is a great, great book. Any musician who likes the Beatles
    needs this book. The only downside is the somewhat small
    page size at approximately 7"x11". I would gladly buy the
    book again if they made it in the more conventional 9"x12" size.

    Complete scores is, indeed, great. Only downside: it's hardbound so pages don't sit nice and flat all the time, and it's big so it doesn't sit on a music stand well.

    One of the best sheet music purchases I ever made, and I'm not even a big Beatles fan.

    Definitely. A must have. The only problem is the tiny type. For someone like me with old eyes, it's a pain to read.
