This book is LOADED with errors! Time signatures are wrong, harmonies are frequently illogical, and occasionally funny because of it. There are many bad notation errors, concerning time. An example is "Lorena", page 24, wherein the harmony needs to go from the I chord to the IV chord in the second measure, remains on the tonic. Another example in the same song is in measure 13, where the ornament added to the melody line cannot be made to "add up" time-wise. This is a miserable book!
