I think it will be quite a while before I, a new player to the ukulele, will be able to make full use of this book. Not many well known songs and I really bought it for When my Guitar gently weeps by George Harrison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long-awaited sheet music of Jake's faves for the uke 15 Feb 2012
By Joanna Daneman - Published on Amazon.com
This is the long-awaited sheet music book from Jake Shimabukuro, ukulele phenom. 11 of the songs are from his hits that are on Peace Love Ukulele and there are two bonus songs so the contents:

143 (Kelly's song)
Bohemian Rhapsody
Bring Your Adz
Boy Meets Girl
Go For Broke
Trapped 2010
Variation On A Dance 2010
Pianoforte 2010
Five Dallars Unleaded 2010
Ukulele Bros.
Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)

And the bonus two songs:
Hula Girls
While My Guitar Gently Weeps

This is more advanced music in Jake's signature style: beginners will be frustrated, intermediate players will be challenged. The book includes standard music notation, ukulele tablature and chord designation but not chord diagram. The print is a bit fine, in order to put the songs onto a reasonable number of pages, but I found the print rather light and thin. Special techniques (tremolo, slides, hammer on, etc) are noted in the tablature. The book is thin enough to sit well on a music stand, but I find it difficult to read (but I wear bifocals.) Younger folks will probably not have an issue with the fineness of the print. The arrangements are not simplified; this is not dumbed-down.

If you adore Jake's brilliant style, and if you aspire to play his music, you will want to own this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars At least, a Jake Shimabukuro tab book 19 Mar 2012
By A. Casanovas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm sure this is one of the most waited tab book for all the ukulele players out there. Very accurate transcription of the whole Peace,Love,Ukulele album, plus Gently Weeps and Hula Girl.

Definitely not for beginners. Quite difficult stuff, a lot of finger strechings, odd time signatures and hard finger picking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally you can play like Jake. Well, at least you have the visual tools to try. 7 Mar 2012
By Steven I. Ramm - Published on Amazon.com
Those who read my CD reviews here on Amazon know I'm a HUGE Jake Shimabukuro fan and have been for almost 10 years. The guy is an amazing player. And, though I don't play an instrument - some us have to be listeners - I know many of you want to emulate Jake on the uke.

To my knowledge this is the first transcription book of Jake's music and this one includes the really technical "Bohemian Rhapsody". Just looking at how detailed some of the tablatures are, you can really appreciate the amazing feats Jake performs on his 4-string instrument.

Like previous reviewer I thought the typeface was a bit small - especially sing you will not be reading it up close like a novel or book of text.

I thought I'd also point out that - except for 2 full pages of photos near the front - and a 3 or 4 sentence "thank you" from Jake on the title page, there is no additional text in the book. Since all but two of the songs are on his MUST HAVE CD "Peace Love Ukulele", you can read the stories behind the songs (what does adz mean?; what is the significance of 143 in title of "Kelly's Song"? - BTW, Kelly is Jakes new bride.) in the CD liner notes, it might have been to have provided it here too. There's not even a bio page.

BUT, the purpose of the book is to provide the notes for Jakes songs so that fan who do play the uke can stop trying to replay videos on You Tube trying to figure out the chords. And, for that, it succeeds.

I hope you found this review both helpful and informative

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Book But Not Just For Solo Ukulele... 26 Aug 2013
By andrew cordle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The tunes in this book are written for the more advanced ukulelists or those who don't mind practicing a lot... Most can be played alone but some of them have 3 or 4 parts - I did not see any advertising indicating that these are transcriptions for more than one player so be forewarned !!!
