Jim Croce was the definitive story-song composer, writing up-tempo, campy blues tunes like "You Don't Mess Around With Jim," as well as heart-breakingly beautiful ballads like "Operator" and "Time in a Bottle."
This book makes it easy to start playing Jim Croce's songs, presenting 20 of his greatest hits in an easy to play and understand format. These easy guitar arrangements include the vocal line (melody and lyrics), plus the core guitar parts. Critical riffs have also been included in simplified form.
