Solo instrumentalists will love this collection of 15 of today's hottest hits! The full-accompaniment play-along audio features tempo adjustment software so you can change the tempo without changing pitch.
This is yet another Hal Leonard publication which promises much,-14 fairly up to date pop tunes all in first position in reasonably easy keys and rhythms( grade 2-3)BUT greatly let down by the appallingly unmusical door bell sound melody cue. For some reason they do not supply an uncued backing track so you are supposed to turn down the right channel to remove the cue. This causes the overall volume to drop and on this cd doesn't actually remove all the cue sound. I've used quite a few of these books before but this has been the worst so far so I emailed Hal Leonard to complain and they tell me they are stopping this type of backing track in the near future. Be warned though there are still a few yet to come. So my advice is, don't buy from this series until they sort out these backing tracks- they really are awful! Anonyme
