The tab transcriptions are very accurate. You have the options of the full song at performance speed, then a backing track. Then the solos played slowly and finally a slow backing track. Great little guitar tab book. Transcriptions seems pretty accurate and easy enough to follow. The option to hear slowed down solos on the CD is certainly helpful! With these classic songs Chuck Berry established much of the vocabulary of rock guitar. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix etc all learned a lot from Chuck, as did later rock monsters like Kiss and AC/DC (as John Lennon said "If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry'.") But Chuck's talent and innovation need not be justified by those who came later, these songs are still a lot of fun to learn and play for their own sake. If you practice this music diligently and play it with a band, I am confident you will get an exceptional audience response, even from people who may have never listened to Chuck Berry. There's just something about these songs that still makes audiences stand up, smile and cheer. When you're in that room with the audience cheering you on, and women are getting up from their seats and dancing, and people are shaking your hand afterwards and the whole room seems lifted, you suddenly realize what live music is all about. It transcends fads and trends. It transcends what decade it is. It doesn't matter how old this music gets, the moment you start playing, it's brand new. It's fun. It's fresh. It's exciting. It's rock n' roll!
