Over the past seventeen years, Ben Folds has been distinguishing himself as a different flavor of singer/songwriter. This book, The Best Imitation of Myself, which matches the recording of the same title, includes an overview of his works so far. There are songs from his 1990s indie rock recordings, from live performances of Ben Folds Five, some of his solo work and three new Ben Folds Five songs. This book of sheet music includes 22 songs arranged with guitar chords and piano accompaniments for the solo vocal lines. The piano solo interludes are included in these songs, which is refreshing, since it is a rarity to find piano solos included like this.
