I'm not sure, but it seems to me almost pointless sometimes to get a songbook unless it's a like a "guitar recorded version" or soemthign like that,m be ause ootherwise, it doesn't seem to tell you tunings or if a chord is played differenty. Which pisses me off. Like I have this book that was a classic 100 by VH1 (from 90s VH1, not crappy todays) and also another book with acoustic songs, and alot of the stuff doesn't sound right as is. I usually have to still go online and look for tabs. Am I just not going deep enough into it or what? Is there a brand that makes "better" musicbooks?
You can get tab books at guitar stores. they have tab, and regular notation most of the time.
You need decent folios, they're harder to get but usually anything certified by a major guitar magazine will be pretty reliable
so standard music books aren't that good for guitar? Because i have two books with alot of songs I like. But oh well...
