Fix to my previous review (4/22/2012)
I think I worded my explanation to the wrong note during the interlude of Rime of the Ancient Mariner in my previous review.

Here is what I meant to say. Again, this is regarding the first triplet figure during the interlude. The 3rd note of this figure I believe is wrong. At the very least there is discontinuity between the TAB and notation.

The TAB shows an F#(11th fret G string) The notation shows an E. But it has a 'dead' note symbol where a # or b symbol would normally be. I have never seen this used like this. Maybe it means the note is hard to hear?

Anyway, I hear an F on this note. That is, the 3rd note of the first triplet figure during the interlude should be an F(10th fret on G string). Please someone else give a listen.

Really good (4/22/2012)
I dig this book. I do disagree about some of the positions. I know the author says he got them off the videos. But some of the notes you can tell by the timbre of Steve's bass. One such section are the E's during the slow interlude of Phantom of the Opera. I'm sure Steve is playing those at the 2 fret on the D string. Then later during the progression he is playing the E on the A string, because of the licks he's doing and positioning. No biggie, its still a great book. Also, someone verify this for me. During the interlude of 'Rime', the 3rd note of the first triplet figure is wrong. it's an F#-but the tab shows a Gb and the standard notation show and F! So its not jiving here and I'm kind of surprised this mistake made it into the book. Considering how accurate the rest of it is. Other than that I think the book 99% accurate.
