I only bought this a couple months ago. So far, the transcriptions seem pretty accurate. I do questions some of the guitar solo transcriptions, but there is A LOT of guitar happening on this albu. Also, due to the diverse instrumentation: Many instrumental parts are "transcribed for guitar". I suppose this works well if you're planning on covering any of these tunes and your band doesn't have the appropriate players on hand. This album has such a rich sound that a band would need all the help they could get to recreate any of these songs. FYI-The cover of this book is a photo of Matt Groening's album. He also writes the intro.
