5.0 out of 5 stars Lyle Ritz solos, not for the fainthearted 13 Dec 2004
Format:Sheet music
This is the definitive book if chord solos is where you are at!
It is simply amazing how many chord positions there are on the ukelele. I have been playing for years and have just realised how much I didn't know. The accompanying CD has Lyle playing all the solos as presented in the book, apart from don't get around much anymore (which I believe is different at the end of the solo in the book from that which he is plays on the Cd)
Apart from that I would recommend it to anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of the Uke fretboard. I would suggest that you make sure you have a concert or tenor uke in your hands though when you try to play these solos, because unless you have very small fingers you will not be able to hold the chords down on a soprano uke.
I highly recommend this book

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant books for students of the uke and jazz 29 Jan 2013
Format:Sheet music|Verified Purchase
We have two books, an orange one and a blue one, and they differ subtly - Ritz plays a tenor uke with re-entrant baritone tuning. The orange book has the fingerings for this uke (labelled as "tenor") under the musical stave, and the fingerings for soprano above, resulting in the same chords each time (with variations dictated by the different position on the fretboard). The blue book has one set of fingerings for all ukes, no matter what the size, hence the music is in two different keys. In the case of the blue book, then, you may find the stretches to be just too big if you are playing a tenor or bari and your hands are small.

Whatever way you look at it, these books require (and repay) genuine good old practice! They have much more content than you may think - 25 songs is a lot - if you practise each song for a week, it will take you 6 months to get through one book! The arrangements are gorgeous, and the books are superb for someone who has just begun learning harmony and jazz theory. They deserve more than 5 stars*.

*although there are some small problems: one or two printer's errors can confuse, and also a lot of chords are labelled as Major 7 when I suspect they should be labelled as Major 9 (e.g. 0202 is labelled CM7 on soprano, which makes no sense, and anyway the bari is clearly not playing a major 7 chord, whereas 0202 could have been a misprint for 0002. Labelling 0202 as CM9 makes a lot more sense and it ties in with what is going on on the bari, and later on we see genuine examples of M9 chords, so that we know Ritz definitely makes use of them)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Absolute Best 6 July 2008
By C. Khodadadian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Sheet music
I'll keep this short as I could write about how brilliant this book is for ages.

1. This is the best ukulele songbook in existence.

2. This is for Advanced players. If you are looking to take your ukulele playing to the next level, buy this book.

3. You will never look at the ukulele or you playing the same ever again after you play through this book. This is a good thing.

4. Buy it. Now. Don't lose the CD, you WILL need it to learn the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solo Uke'n 12 Aug 2005
By Arjuna Duryea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Sheet music
A great music book. This book, which includes cd, is arranged by Ukulele Jazz Master Lyle Ritz. The disc contains all songs in the book, seven for tenor uke and eight for fluke. An electric base helps define the harmonies and the rythm. It's a bit advanced for me because I'm still learning the basic chords, but the finger charts are very easy to follow. The collection has songs spanning swing, jazz, ballad, waltz, bossa nova and reggae, most with written lyrics and a few without (instrumentals). Lyrics are not sung on the disc except for the last song "Where or When." The nice part about this disc is that listeners who aren't learning to play but simply want to hear the magical ukulele in the air will enjoy it as much as uke students. Mahalo

5.0 out of 5 stars Great arrangements for the advanced player 28 Mar 2008
By J.U. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Sheet music
Warning: The ukulele solos in this book are for advanced players.
I've been playing ukulele since I was a kid, but only recently have I gotten serious about it. After about a week, I was able to play half of one song (Don't Get Around Much More). Whew! I'm looking forward to figuring out the rest of this song and learning more since they sound so nice on the CD. Infact, the CD is of high quality with an accompanying Bass. I would give the CD a 4 or 5 stars by itself. Having the arrangement to follow along definitely makes this a 5 star product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will not disappoint. 11 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Sheet music|Verified Purchase
Sophisticated arrangements. I've played the uke for many years and still found some of the chord voicing challenging on the fingers. However, if you stick with it you will be rewarded with a sound that will sure to please. As an added bonus, you learn new fingerings of old chords that will enrich the sound. Also a good case study on how to color basic chords and melody. Buy it and stick with it. You'll impress everyone including yourself.
