4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to your Beatles collection!, September 24, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Beatles for Ukulele (Paperback)
Any Beatles fan will know that George was an avid ukulele player, and that John's mother taught him to play uke before he picked up a guitar. So it's only fitting that a Beatles book arranged for the four string wonder finally be published.
Once you get past the horribly ugly cover, it's a great book. Sure, it's only got 20 songs and your favorite might not be in there, but it does have chord diagrams for ukulele, that other Beatles collections don't. For the advanced beginner or intermediate player, this book is perfect. If you're an experienced player, this book might be a bit beneath you. For the advanced player, I would recommend "The Beatles Complete Chord Songbook" - all the songs, but no ukulele chord diagrams (just guitar).

But back to that cover... I can understand not being able to license photos of the Fab Four, but at least hire an artist to create a Peter Max style cover. Perhaps for volume 2.

I believe John's mother taught him to play banjo chords, which he then played on the guitar. Could be wrong, though.

I believe you may be right. I can't find now where I read about John's early encounter with the uke.
