    If you're looking for a keyboard book (sheet music) that shows you how Elton originally recorded the songs, this is your book. It also contains the music played for other instruments, for example Daniel, which includes the notes for voice, piano, flute, electric piano (synthesizer). Best of all, it's not one of those dreadful sheet music books that just show the vocal notes with chords attached to them and the bass thrown in. It does include chords for guitar players but not the finger combos you generally see in music books (it is after all a keyboard book!).

    This book has an excellent selection of Elton's most beloved songs. Sadly, doesn't include Levon (which is in another book) and a few others that were overlooked. Why it has Blue Eyes and Little Jeannie (two embarrassing songs from the short-lived Elton John / Gary Osborne era when Bernie Taupin, his longtime lyricist, and Sir Elton had a falling out).

    If you are interested in how the music was originally played on the album / CD, look for sheet music that has note for note transcriptions. This is advanced piano playing, though some songs may be considered intermediate (like Your Song or Rocket Man). I was very happy to see it had Empty Garden in this collection as it was originally recorded. That song includes the music for the piano, electronic piano, harpsichord, keyboard flute song, plus the notes for the synthesizer bell.

    Now, if we could get sheet music companies to put these books into ringlet binders for easy page flipping, that would be nice (and likely more expensive). Another plus would be if the music was written out so you don't have to flip back to earlier pages to do second and third verses. That would by "symphony" music, which this is very close to.

    muy buen transcripción de piano, no encontré cómo comprarla en esta página pero sin duda vale la pena adquirir el libro.
  • (5/5)
    Good translation; seems accurate; Hard to find songs that don't seem very abridged
  • (5/5)
    This is a great transcription to accompany a vocalist. The pianist will need to have significant proficiency with the keyboard to play this piece as written.
