There should be one in everyone's gigbag.

Real book is a class in its own way. This edition is another example. And it is great to be able to let go of the old notes and have everything nicely organized.

Very good sheet music for many purposes

Lutz aus L., 25.04.2016
The Real Rock Books in C are structured as follows:
- The vocal or melody parts are recorded in one or more voices for C instruments. (Only notes - NO tabs - that's absolutely NO disadvantage!)
- All relevant intros, solos, riffs etc. are integrated and noted in C to use for C instruments. In addition, the original instruments are noted.
- The keys are the original keys, so you can play for practice purposes to the original.
- The chords are not only for guitar, but (with knowledge of their implementation) also very good for keyboard instruments to use. Only a bit of getting used to is the notation of the minor chords, which are written only with a dash (instead of the m). But this is just as quick to learn as the typical English chord designations for the German H = B.
- All lyrics are small, but well legible integrated into the score, so the book is also well suited for singing.
- A big plus of the book is that the songs are each distributed on a maximum of two pages, so that a page is omitted.
- The selection is very large and with both books you have a repertoire (altogether about 400 songs) of all important hits (not just rock!) From the 1950s to the 1980s.

Conclusion: Very good grading material for lessons or live performances. But even without knowledge of notes you can use the correct (!) Harmonies and the text very well for your own pleasure.
