TSOTLOTM Official Hal Leonard Transcription Book
« on: November 16, 2012, 10:13:50 AM »
I was looking on Ben's twitter account today and saw a picture that he posted. It's a copy of the official TSOTLOTM music, transcribed by Hal Leonard. I think it is only Piano and Vocals (so no bass or drums parts unfortunately, but hopefully they might be released at a later date???)

Here's the link: https://twitter.com/BenFolds/status/267053171577352192

Can't wait to learn Thank You For Breaking My Heart. It's one that I'd rather learn properly as opposed to most of the others where I just work them out by ear.

Thoughts anyone? Anyone got more information on the publication?

That's not 2-4 weeks of being on a truck. It usually means Amazon doesn't likely have it in stock right now, but they will soon.

Mine came the other day. It's a great book. The transcriptions are great: very clear about when distinguishing between an arrangement of another instrument for piano, and adding extra bars on occasion (i.e. "Draw a Crowd" has electric piano and acoustic piano separated in a few parts).

If I had one, then my one grievance with the sheet music would be the transcription of "Do It Anyway." It's accurate I think, but they wrote in 4/4 what I would transcribed in only one measure of 4/4 for the sake of simplicity (1 1/4 note = 256 or something like that; way too fast on the page turning, etc.).
