Darn, that (and NLOTH) are the only U2 piano books I don't have. :D I want to get it, though, the arrangement of Stay in the Best of 90's book stinks. :P

Post by: AchtungPiano on July 16, 2010, 11:33:48 PM
YOU HAVE THE 90S BOOK?!?!?!? :o thats amazing!!! i cant find it in any book store!!! and i wanted to play discotheque soooo bad...i only have 1980s and piano collection.
Title: Re: hola!
Post by: U2_fan8 [aka U28] on July 16, 2010, 11:41:34 PM
:D Try ebay or amazon, I found mine on the latter, it was super cheap. I don't like playing Discotheque too much (I think I'm just frustrated I'm not able to recreate the full studio sound :D) but Electrical Storm is AMAZING. So is The Hands that Built America and The First Time. :)
I have the 80s, 90s, and HTDAAB books.
