The Ninth: Beethoven and the World in 1824
"A thank you note to Beethoven"
Beethoven is arguably the greatest composer of all time and his Ninth Symphony is aguably his greatest composition. Within the book, the author mentions that other composers didn't see one composer as being better than another, but for us mere mortals, we should be allowed this opportunity. And there are reasons to believe of Beethoven's greatness. For years after his death, his works were ...
Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course: Lesson Book, Level One/2236
Alfred Publishing Company, 1983
Excellent do it yourself piano course
Although this series of books won't replace a talented teacher, if you have a hankering to finally be able to play that piano (or keyboard) that's been hanging around your house forever, this series will do the trick. You won't wind up playing something that threatens the position of the great piano maestros of our day, but you'll be able to pick up chords and a melody and make a song sound like ...
Little Girl Blue: The Life of Karen Carpenter
Chicago Review Press, 2010
A Must-Read Biography
Little Girl Blue was a fascinating read for this lifelong Carpenters fan. Although I'm in my early 30s now, I have been a fan of Karen's voice since I was a child and my parents played their records (back when records were the only musical format commercially available). As an adult, I have had the pleasure of re-discovering the Carpenters' body of work, and continue to enjoy their recordings. ...
The Beatles Complete Chord Songbook
Hal Leonard Corporation, 2000
Can't Beat the Beatles
For those of us who own good acoustic guitars and can play a bit, this book is terrific. It simply shows you the chords for (I think all) of the Beatle's tunes in keys which mirror the records. The chords are "friendly" voicings for acoustic guitar, the chords that bluegrass players and dorm-room folkies play routinely. My only quibble is that the book does not indicate the number of measures ...
You Never Give Me Your Money: The Beatles After the Breakup
Oh yeah! Alright! Are you gonna be in my dreams tonight?
Whenever The Beatles are brought up, it evokes those in the conversation to enter a time machine in their mind that takes them back to another time and place. I find it to be truly fascinating that a band who in their final configuration (McCartney, Lennon, Harrison, and Starr) essentially played together for 7 years from 1962 to 1969. For many bands, they would simply be unable to make any sort ...

Joseph Smith did not author the LDS scriptures.
Dear Amazon.com, Joseph Smith did not author the "LDS Scriptures". The LDS Scriptures include: the Old Testament, New Testament, the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price. With the exception of the Doctrine and Covenants, Joseph Smith was the translator and editor of the scriptures. Sincerely, Lynn Godek

The Ultimate Guitar Chord Chart
Hal Leonard Corporation, 1998
Great beginner chord book
I came across this book by accident at a local book store. I've seen many different guitar chord charts (and posters) both online and in print - but I bought this one because... 1 - I'm a beginner for the most part (I play rhythm guitar/chords mostly out of easy guitar or fake books, and I can transpose some of the music on the fly so that I can sing with it) 2 - The fingerings in this book ...

How to Play Guitar: Everything You Need to Know to Play the Guitar
St. Martin's Griffin
Must read for beginners
I started playing the guitar about 5-6 years ago. I took a class, but mainly just tried to learn by playing guitar tabs that I found online. Needless to say I didn't get very good and became discouraged. I went away to college, and barely touched the guitar again until now. I got this book about a week ago, and I wish I had it when I first started learning. It is VERY comprehensive for the ...
