109 of 109 people found the following review helpful By J. Malvern on 27 Oct. 2009
Format: Paperback
A very accessible songbook for beginners and more talented folk alike. If, like me, you're not particularly interested in theory and just want to learn the chords to a few pop songs then this is just the thing. The finger positions for all the relevant chords are written at the top of the page, and it is just a matter of learning how to progress through them quickly enough to sound competent.
There is a good range of songs from the beguilingly easy (Creep, by Radiohead or Back for Good, by Take That) to the gallingly difficult (Song 2, by Blur).

Format: Paperback
The best thing about playing the ukulele is that your basic chords are so easy to play and with just three or four chords, your on your way to belting out some of the greatest tunes ever written. Forget George Formby, even though his tunes are as popular today, we are talking classic tunes from The Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles, Queen, Blur, Stevie Wonder, Madness, John Denver, Ting Tings, Amy Winehouse, The Troggs, Johnny Cash, Green Day...the list goes on. Not all these songs are three or four chords mind, but most are so simple you will be able to rattle them off in no time, believe me as I have only been playing over a month and have very little musical skills! You get the 'bar chords' picture to show how to play that chord, lyrics, time signature etc. A great book for beginners or acomplished uke players alike. Join the Ukulele revolution now with this amazing book!

Clearly there is a lot of personal opinion in this, but for me this book has the best Uke selection in this series. Some of the songs you'd think were written for Uke such as Daydream Believer and Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. Others don't always lend themselves so well, but this book has more that do than some of the others in the series. The book contains the chord patterns only, so none of the individual notes so you'll have to work out finger-picking styles yourself if that's your bag. Overall a good range of abilities covered and all required chord patterns presented at the top of each song. Well worth while for beginners wanting to stretch themselves and for more experienced wanting to expand their repertoire. Good range of old and newer material as well. For this price it's difficult to go wrong and there is bound to be something of interest.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By CHRISTOPHER MELVIN on 14 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
I bought this whole series a month ago. I am a beginner, but can now play about 15 songs (a selection from all the books)on my uke and sing along. I am really loving it.
The series offers very easy songs(like "faith" by george michael) to extremely difficult songs- haven't mastered those yet. My only comment for improvment would be to repeat the tabs when a song is spread over more pages, so that you dont have to leaf back.

This book contains many of the songs I love to play and the layout is intuitive and clear.

as a criticism for new players i would like to see a strum pattern included, as well as the chords and lyrics.

The paperback format works well and this sits nicely on music stands, however i do need to wear my glasses as the page can be a little small when trying to play and read. i would imagine that the whole "playlist" will be a fair body of work were you to buy all the coloured books.

this is very much aimed at strum along rather than pick players but has some fun tunes that when played alongside the actual track are spot on but the timing and strum pattern is something you have to work out yourself.

Format: Paperback
Really pleased with this book, particularly with the Fleetwood Mac's "go your own way", which I could soon play, although it will take some practice to get to a reasonable standard, but still highly enjoyable. I will take on quite a few songs and then look at the rest of the series (e.g. white book, yellow etc).

Format: Paperback
Bought this book as a complete novice and was happily playing Creep by Radiohead within the hour. The book has easy to follow chord diagrams and a good range of songs to pick and choose from.

The only downside, as other reviewers have stated, is that the chord diagrams are not on each page (in a long tune) and that without muscial annotation you would not know the correct tune if you did not already know the song you were playing.

But that aside it is a great book - great fun!
