This book will last me a long time, if I try to play and learn every song in it.

I confess to being guilty of owning all of Jim's books. If I give one away, I quickly replace it. This one won't fit in your ukulele case (even if it's a baritone), but it is the "one to have". I'm not going to perform an audit to see what is in this book that is not in other books, but there appears to be a ton of new stuff. Missing are chord solo arrangements that you can find sprinkled throughout other books, and the intro/first verse to some songs (that most of us have never heard the intro to). (e.g. Mele Kalikimaka) This book does not include the more difficult type of material that is presented in Jim's master series books. At the back of the book is a nice small collection of holiday and celebration songs, and another section of children's songs. Amazon's price is the lowest that I have seen; so get one quick and consider holiday gift purchases.

I'll be taking mine to Kinko's to see if they can pop a clear plastic front and back cover in the comb binding because this book is going to see some serious use.

PS: In case you're wondering: the all-important "Princess Poo-Poo-Ly Has Plenty Pa-Pa-Ya (And She Loves to Give it Away)" is included. ;-) Also, much of the book is copyright protected material; so the price is a bargain.

I just purchased a Kindle version of The Daily Ukulele as a Christmas gift for my sister. MISTAKE! I'm a fan of the Beloffs and have several of their books, so this absolutely isn't a criticism of them or the contents of the book. The reviews posted on Amazon and the recommendations of fellow ukulele-players persuaded me to get this book for my sis. And the "idea" of being able to tote your uke music on a Kindle was appealing. But my sister, who accepted the gift, has told me that the book is essentially unreadable on the Kindle. As this is a book of sheet music, changing the text size apparently does not work, and anyway, at the least, you really want to be able to see the whole page. According to my sister, apparently the current version displays only two lines of a song at a time. I wish, I wish, I WISH SOMEONE had had the sense NOT to make this available on Kindle -- nice idea in principle maybe, but completely impractical in the execution. I would have bought the paper edition. It would be nice if Amazon would credit back what I paid for this useless version and apply it to buying a paper edition. Why are situations like this always excused by "BUYER BEWARE"? Why is it always the buyer's fault? Thanks for the forum for sounding off.

Addendum: I still don't advise buying the Kindle version, but Amazon has kindly allowed an inhouse credit so that i could buy the paper version to send to ole Sis. Thank you, Amazon.

I'm a ukulele beginner. I got my copy yesterday and I didn't put my uke down for three hours! Lots and lots of fun. With the chord charts included for each song, it's easy for the beginner to use. With 365 songs, I would expect every ukulele player to find plenty to like.

I started playing uke about a year ago. I learned songs from YouTube, from UkesterBrown.com and other places. I also looked up the chords of various songs that I like. But once I got this book and went through it, my catalog of songs to play exploded. I added about 20 songs to my repertoire. The arrangements are very easy, with chord charts at the beginning of each song. There is also sheet music but, that seems unnecessary.

Some of the songs didn't do it for me for various reasons. Either I didn't know the tune, or didn't enjoy playing it. But I found loads of useful songs that I wouldn't have thought to look up elsewhere. Oh by the way, there are a lot of Beatles and several Monkees songs. Somehow the authors got the rights to those. It took itunes a decade to get the Beatles so... kudos.

Here's a list of the songs I've most enjoyed from this book:
Ukulele Lady
Ja Da
Last Train to Clarksville
My Blue Heaven
It's Time to Get Laid
Cindy
5 Foot 2
Hey Good Lookin
It's Only a Paper Moon
Your Cheatin Heart
You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You
When I'm 64
Bye Bye Blackbird
Bye Bye Love
By the Light of the Silvery Moon
Daydream
Daydream Believer
Dream a Little Dream of Me
I'm a Believer
I'm Henry VIII I Am
I Walk the Line
Tiny Bubbles
When the Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin
When You're Smiling
The Rainbow Connection
Dreidel Song
Downtown

Based on the glowing reviews on this site, I purchased the Kindle edition thinking it would be fun to carry it around electronically. The Kindle version has a table of contents but it is not clickable. The songs are not in alpha order and the search function only works on the introduction, not the song titles. There is no way to access the 365 songs without paging through the whole thing or building your own TOC based on the Kindle location number.

A wonderful compendium of Jim Beloff's easy arrangements. For uke groups, this might well be the best book on the market. My only nit to pick is the book's formatting. Small B&W print could be hard for older eyes to read...at any distance.

Though the majority of songs in the book are familiar, you will have to be resourceful to locate the melody for some. A little Internet savvy can be very helpful in that quest. Fortunately, each of the arrangements has melody notation.

Without a doubt, this is a book of songs that every uker can enjoy.
