If you are proficient in music theory; this book will kind of give you an idea of how to play the song (I stress kind of).
So called 'strum/pick patterns' are not even close. There is no way you can sum up 1200 arrangements in one page.
Insulting to the artists who took time to put together the songs 'featured in this book'.
The title says it all 'FAKE'; it is devoid of any recognizable rhythm within the context of the recorded arrangements.
If your looking for original chords or tuning; consult the sheet music. If you want to play those campfire versions that never sound right whatsoever....dive in...

tons of songs, all popular but not to current youngsters ie of 2010's. Book also gives all lyrics to same, which is great; however if you want music to play-with (eg: piano), it only gives right hand, one note at-a-time.
