Oh I like the format fine for my own home study and then it is a handy reminder what chords I want once I know the song... it just is hard to start a jam session re-orienting everyone to how the book works, and hard to get people to pony up for a copy when they have had trouble making it ework for them... we try very hard to get all levels of players participating and the most loved format seems to be chords above words, in each and every verse.

We specialize in activating the inner music channel we believe is hard-wired into every human soul, especially those who are completely convinced they are non-musical. So any barrier we can eliminate has to go. Our people tend to want more and more songs, and less time polishing them... they may go home and polish but when we play together it's a giant song sampler with as many sampled as possible before the older and geezier among us are too tired to keep going-- and we have the keys to the place so when we fall over, that's it!

Anyone passing though N Central PA definitely contact me, we have a ball!
