I don't care about the "basic", it should fit to my limited vocal
abilities (and I'm able to transpose myself, not that hard when playing
guitar ;) and perhaps books were transposed to the "needs" of the author
or the averaged abilities to untrained vocalists. There's still the
question why do they transpose instrumental songs? A broken turn table?
I once listened to an EP from the Ruhrgebiet (I won't name them, they
are a "members" of two well known Metal Band and they are assholes ...
yes, I personally know one or the other, but I've nothing to do with
them and I'm not involved in their legal battles, I just lost a
girlfriend, since I wasn't willing to play guitar in one of the bands,
just to get money, instead I prefer to have nothing to eat. Hahaha, it
was some time before they switched from musical instruments to books
about the law.

IIRC I already recommended this book:

ISBN 0-7119-0015-9
Original Hendrix by Steve Tarshis.

IIRC the only weakness of this book is, that it doesn't take care about
the pitch, IIRC we need to pitch all strings down one step (for playing
with open strings this isn't simply transposing), OTOH I've seen
"Soundgarden" tabs in the Internet, that were nearly correct, they
simply missed to inform about the fact, that just one string needs to be
dropped down ;) and this IMO is a serious issue.
