Review by Kathy Parsons
It’s been awhile since I had so much fun reviewing a songbook. Neal Fox’s companion book to his recently-released CD by the same name is exceptionally well-transcribed, clear and easy to read, and is compiled note-for-note from the CD. All fourteen pieces from the CD are included, and I enjoyed playing every one of them more than once. There is also quite a bit of information about Neal Fox included in the book - discography, bio, web sites, etc. Most of the pieces are at an upper-intermediate level, but I didn’t find any of them to be difficult. There are some octave chords and a few tenths, but players with smaller hands should be able to work around those. The songbook is available in both book form or download from WireDuck.com and lulu.com/nealfox; songs can also be purchased individually. Samples of Neal’s recorded music are at WireDuck.com and CD Baby. I recommend this book very highly!
