I wish there were more of these for other artists
Anatoly, 22.03.2019
It's much easier (and cheaper!) to get one big book than a book for every album, so on this alone, this gets a five star. Wise Publications, please do a Metallica one as well, would ya?!

Just as with any "greatest hits" type collection, the choice of songs is always a contentious issue: for example, i cannot imagine why on Earth would someone not include masterpieces such as "Snowballed", "Gone Shooting" or "Landslide", but include less impressive (if not filler!) songs such as "Hail Caesar" or "Cover You In Oil". There are lots of other songs missing that i would have loved to see here, but the good thing is, most of what your average AC/DC fan would expect to see, is here (except, of course, for the Rock or Bust album, which was released after this collection was printed).

From cursory inspection, the tabs are quite accurate. In particular, i've seen many versions of the Thunderstruck chorus riff online, and a lot of them were wrong, but this book got it right. Every other non-trivial riff that i thought to check (Sink the Pink, Riff Raff, Stiff Upper Lip, etc.) was correct. I didn't dig into the solos, which would have been a better test, but i gotta learn them first :P

One thing that kind of disappointed me is that some songs do include vocal harmonies written out, but many don't (Highway to Hell, for example, doesn't). This would have been a nice touch for a band setting, but this is mostly a guitar songbook, so no biggie.

So, while some song choices i would personally find questionable, overall this is an amazing package, and i highly recommend this to any fellow AC/DC fan.

Must have for AC/DC-Fans

A very extensive collection of their greatest songs. I gave it to myself for birthday. However, the book is quite heavy. Nothing for my old music stand. You can always discuss but in my opinion the song selection is quite good. The lyrics could be a bit better positioned.
