    Question Beatles sheet music...where?

    Can anyone help me find some good (accurate) Beatles sheet music? I've found some songbook titles on Amazon, but the reviews are very mixed. Can you recommend an excellent Beatles songbook, or are there any websites you know of where I can find *free* Beatles sheet music?

    Thanks

    I have "The Beatles Complete Scores" which has every song written and recorded by the Beatles. It is a hardback thick white book and it is GREAT! Guitar and Bass is tabbed. It has drum parts and chords and all additional instruments. It is a really great version of the Beatles music!

    alan pollack's analysis

    I know you didn't ask for this specifically, but for any Beatles lover, I like to recommend Alan Pollack's "Notes on a Series." It is a discussion of every Beatles tune from a composition point of view. It includes no standard notation, but using chord charts, it illumines the Beatles music as harmonic compositions. Everyone always says how lovely the Beatles melodies are, but Pollack's quick and original analysis suggests the beauty lay in the harmonic composition. I looked up a couple of Pollack's analyses, and got hooked on the whole series, which is indexed wonderfully by song and by era. I downloaded and read the whole thing and am now using it as a study guide.
