REVIEW: Hal Leonard Lennon and McCartney Vol. 13

For Beatles and McCartney fans out there, the 13th volume of Hal Leonard’s Lennon and McCartney play-along book has come through again. This volume contains eight songs complete with sheet music and tabs of McCartney’s great bass lines. Paired with a layout conducive for reading and singing along, the book is perfect for bassists hoping to work on playing bass and singing some of their favorite Beatles songs, just like McCartney himself.

The book includes “All My Loving,” “Day Tripper,” “Paperback Writer” and more from the 1960’s Beatles catalog. Complete with the play along CD, the book provides everything you need to work up to a note for note performance of these hit songs. Put your CD into a Mac or PC, and unlock the tempo change feature for each of the tracks, without altering the key of the song. This book makes it easy to learn the bass lines, and put them together with tracks that seamlessly imitate the original recordings.

After learning these songs, try playing along with your ’60s Beatles albums, and really get into the style and groove that make the music still relevant to learn today. McCartney’s bass lines are important to learn for any beginner bass players wanting to begin writing their own rock bass lines. This volume cuts out the work of transcribing those great lines on your own, and gets you to playing and mastering the songs faster.
