    Default Jake Shimabukuro Tab book :)

    Just asked my Hal Leonard rep about this, if she had heard anything about it, and if she could tell me about it.

    I got this reply: "It looks like we are working on that book. I have been told it should be done late August or September."

    Thought there would be a lot of people interested in knowing that

    Thanks for the update. I'm sure this book will be "must buy" for many of us, even if we don't stand much of a chance of being able to really play his versions.

    It's been a long time coming, but I'm sure it'll be worth the wait. Even as itsme said "we don't stand much of a chance of being able to really play his version" we can still do our own versions.

    Thanks for the info, but I will believe it when I see it. This book has been in the making for some time now and I have heard many "release" dates. I hope this time is for real.

    I used to really wish for such a tab book, but at this point in time, I actually derive more fun trying to figure out Jake's arrangements myself by watching videos and listening to his albums.

    It would be nice to just point people to such a tab book when I get requests for Blue Roses Falling tabs though. LOL! (seriously, what's up with all the people who want tabs to Blue Roses Falling??? It seems like 95% of the Youtube messages I get is asking for tabs to Blue Roses Falling...)

    I agree with you. I can't believe it this time either.

    the Jake iPad app has the tab for Gently Weeps (and Pianoforte) that scrolls beneath the video lesson, so I'm thinking this is quite possible now.
