This is a superb book, which elevates the ukulele to a `proper' instrument. Who would have thought that it could sound this different or this good.
While the book is not for beginners, it does start off with some easy pieces and finishes with some advanced numbers. The music is written in both tab and traditional format, and suits the high G particularly well. It is worth buying this book just to listen to the CD alone.
The cd included with the book makes you realise what the uke is capable of - it's really a little guitar capable of very sweet sounds.
The arrangements are made for the re-entrant tuning, whereas I mostly play with a low G, so I have had to do a bit of tinkering with the fingering when the melody is on the 4th string. It all adds to one's interest and understanding.
I hope that this book is as successful as it deserves, and that more will follow.
The CD that comes with it is well played by the author and is useful to know how the tunes ought to sound.
The only reason that I haven't given it 5 stars is that I would like to have seen some playing and performing notes for each piece.
