You’re getting complete arrangements that sound incredible and are tabbed out note-for-note… Not to mention Lily’s masterful instruction that not only explain the ideas behind the arrangements, but also how you can apply them in your own music and create your own masterpieces.
(You also get the sheet music for all the pieces).
Even better: the tabs are also provided in both PDF and Powertab format.
With Powertab, you can watch the notes go by on your computer, and each one is highlighted as its playing. If you’ve never experienced this before, it’s incredible. No more trying to “figure out” the rhythm of the tabs. You see it, you hear it, and you learn it — FAST.
I can’t stress enough how many hours this is going to save you when you learn these pieces.
