Do any of the books out there contain the "vanilla changes" to tunes along with the authors substutions?

Colin Cosimini's Chord Book takes this appoach on some (though not all) of the tunes therein. I think it's still available in the Shop, if you want to check out the song list. It's great to use alongside the gadjodrom charts, which tend to be more on the plain side; just comping through a given tune a few different ways, taking a bit from here and a bit from there, makes it easier to arrive at your own interpretation. Check out the Links for Rookies thread for links to gadjodrom and other chart sites.

good luck,
