Four decades after their break-up, The Beatles remain the most critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. The Beatles had more number one albums on the UK charts, and held down the top spot longer than any other musical act in the history of popular music.
The Little Black Songbook Of The Beatles includes complete lyrics and chords to over 160 Beatles classics, and not only this; each song has its own chord library where you can view enhanced details and play audio samples of chords used.
The App features timeless Beatles songs from all their classic albums, ‘A Day In The Life’ from Sgt. Peppers, ‘You Never Give Me Your Money’ from Abbey Road, ‘Good Day Sunshine’ from Revolver, ‘Get Back’ from Let It Be, ‘Dear Prudence’ from The White Album and many more from the Fab Four’s 12 original albums released from 1963 – 1970.
As well as this, the App contains 30 professionally recorded backing tracks to play along to, including ‘Drive My Car’, ‘Eight Days A Week’, ‘Help!’, ‘Nowhere Man’, ‘Paperback Writer’, ‘Yesterday’, ‘Ticket To Ride’ and ‘I Saw Her Standing There’.
Also included are a few instructional video lessons to help you learn songs like ‘And Your Bird Can Sing’ and ‘Day Tripper’, plus the app has a built in tuner so you can play along with the backing tracks and video lessons.
The Little Black Songbook Of The Beatles is a brand new fully licensed App, and is a must-have for any fan of the Fab Four.

Not very practical
It's lovely to have all the Beatles' songs with the correct chords but I feel like an opportunity has been missed to do this correctly. The songs are simply images of the book pages and so a lot of valuable iPhone screen space is wasted on the large margins (even in the books this is a problem!). This means you have to pinch & scroll to make the text big enough to read easily.
Then when you reach the end of the page you have to swipe and re-adjust which is not practical in the middle of a song. The new 2-page view could have helped but the page-swiping is unreliable and if the menu is in view so that you can use the buttons, then part of the page is obscured!
This is possibly all alleviated on the iPad version but for the iPhone it's simply painful for anything but slow practice.
