United Mutations: The cover of this book should already have given some kind of warning...
This 100-page book does indeed include guitar (or bass guitar) tabs for some of the melody lines of some of the guitar solos of Frank Zappa's pieces, but I had expected something else, something better. Certainly not 'definitive'.

Dozens of guitar tablature books have been published under the name of the author of this book. Apparently, these are mostly automatically compiled products, where editing has been reduced to an absolute minimum.
In this book, for example, there are three songs with the same title as Zappa's songs, but by different authors: Dirty Love (Thunder), Stick It Out (Rush), The Torture Never Stops (W.A.S.P.).
Avoid buying this book!
