Summary

(Guitar Book). Now for the first time ever, all musicians can play and study nearly every note Pat Metheny has ever written in this amazing new book that he deems his "most exciting project since (his) first album." Over a decade in the making and done with Metheny's intense involvement every step of the way, the Pat Metheny Songbook is a complete collection of this genius guitarist/composer's songs from the recording of Bright Size Life in 1975 to today. This comprehensive tribute includes compositions from all of his solo records, group records, collaborations with Lyle Mays and others, and more 167 songs in total in its more than 400 pages! The compositions are presented in lead sheet arrangements, enabling all musicians unprecedented access to Metheny's music. Also includes a two-page time line of Pat Metheny milestones; an introduction from the editors; a table of contents which lists the songs and their composer credits; a biography; a complete full-color discography including album covers, musician credits and Metheny's commentary; plus his thoughts on composing, improvising, developing a unique style; and more. This long-awaited, landmark release is absolutely essential for all Metheny fans!
