Yes I totally agree with the first review. The only downside to this book is that the chords are written for guitar rather than Ukulele. Well... kinda. There is a note to capo your guitar on the 5th fret to make the chords the same as a ukulele (and the same key as Iz played). But the chord diagrams are still labeled as the lower guitar pitch. So as I play, I see the fingering for a B flat (for ukulele), but it is labeled an F (Because, of course, when you play an F on guitar capoed on the 5th fret, it is a B flat). Guitar players will have no trouble at all, but for us uke strummers, its a little confusing. But don't let this stop you from buying it!

Still love the book! Would have rated it 4 1/2 stars if it were possible.

Another plus to the book is that all the Hawai'an lyrics are translated into English for all of us haole.

Dakine IZ songbook with fifteen of his hits from various albums. This book, the guitar/ukulele edition, is to the point, just the music, no introductions, although it does have several photos and a table of contents, listing which album each song is from. It assumes that the owner is familiar with Braddah IZ's work and expects a buyer also familiar with reading music. The finger placement charts are a little small, albeit the chord is also listed above the chart allowing the changes to be made with ease. I would have liked this song book to come with a cd of the music alone, that would have been ono kine. But as is, a good book with classic songs. Mahalo.

I agree with the majority of what is being said here with one exception, that concerning Guitar vs Ukulele chords being supplied. For those who may not realize it a couple of points:

1. The chord diagrams supplied are actually for the Baritone Ukulele. Look closer and notice that there are two strings in the diagram not used (The E and A strings which are the difference for the Baritone Ukulele.

2. Capo at fret 5 of a guitar or baritone ukulele results in the Standard "C" (G-C-E-A) tuning I believe.

In short, what you need for the most part is provided for you with a little insight from you.

If you never listened to IZ then you should. He was the best Hawawii had. This book contains alot of good songs. The problem is alot of them are written in Hawaian so dont expect to play and sing them if you dont listen to the music. It is a shame that the best Blues,Rock,PoP and yes Hawaian music always come after the passing of the singer. Give this a shot. Music is music for all and in Hawaii IZ was the best.

This book is really great for a Baritone Ukulele.. True, it is tuned differently than a suprano or Tenor But if you want to have fun with the Baritone Uku.. This is a great way to go.... I am enjoying mine very much... I recommend this for all Baritone Ukulele players... Rock

Format: Paperback
The book has the chords and tabs for several popular IZ songs, but ALL the chord diagrams and tab diagrams are for guitar. And while yes you could just look at the letter and play the G chord or F chord on an Ukulele, the tab diagrams do not help for finger picking on ukulele.

A little expensive but good for lyrics. Near useless for exclusive ukelele players as entire is for guitar with capo at 5th fret.
