It's old hat to rag on the band for churning out trailer-loads of merchandise by now, but it really doesn't reflect terribly well on their level of quality control when something this inexplicably bad comes out under their name.


It's great if you play the bass, I guess.

If the guitar transcriptions are inaccurate, who’s to say the bass would be any better?

probably pretty good if your computer monitor needs to be about an inch-and-a-half taller

Well, I'm sure glad that I canceled my $90 order from the ten club when it's now available again on Amazon for $46. I smell some shady business here. At the time I ordered it, back in May, they said it was on back order and that they would notify us as soon as the shipping dates became available and that we wouldn't be charged until the item shipped. Then three weeks later they charged my credit card for the full amount ($88 or 89, something like that). When I contacted them to ask why I was charged I got some bullshit answer like "well, we didn't want you to be surprised when all of the sudden it's available to ship and we charge your credit card and you're not expecting it so we figured we'd just charge you now." What?! Then when it comes to the issue of cancelling my order, they gave me some bullshit line like "well, we're not sure that you will have a chance to order this again if you cancel your order now because we have no way to ensure future availability beyond those who have already paid for their order." What the hell is going on over there? That's shady business. After waiting for 5 months, I finally cancelled my order and got my money back. Then they all of a sudden started shipping them! Ha, oh well, I'll buy it from Amazon for half the price (assuming it's still even that worth that much). So freakin' weird?!

At least 100% of bass is listed. No "as felt" for the bass.

Someone posted a photo of theirs on facebook. Hail Hail page. The guitar chords looked correct at quick glance.

Is it worth the $45 amazon is charging?
Seems like a nice book to have regardless of quality. I still love the nostalgia of tab books

That's what I paid, and I'm not carrying any regret.

Holy shit, am I going blind or is this type font microscopic? It should've come with a pair of binoculars.
