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.
Almost more importantly, the arrangements cover a wide variety of skill levels... New to uke? There's arrangements for you. A master? There are some challenging pieces. The edition I purchased was spiral-bound so that it lays flat on a music stand.
The book is a tremendous value... For the price of a few sets of strings, you'll have an extensive library of music at your fingertips. I would almost go so far as to say this is a "must-purchase" for any uke player. In fact, for a lot of uke groups - folks who get together just to play and have fun - it *is* a "must-purchase"...
I really love the spiral binding and the book lays flat. The songs are all on the same page, so there is no turning of pages when you are playing a song. I love the chord boxes at the top of each song which clearly shows how to play the chord on the ukulele. If I am unfamiliar with a particular song, I go to YouTube and look it up. Someone is either singing or playing that song. Then I go back to the book and I can usually play the song.
But what was even more valuable for me was the Introduction pages. There is one page in particular which shows 3 ways to play a Bb chord, which is usually very difficult for beginners, including me. This opened up my world and makes it possible for me to play more songs than I thought possible. Also, there is a tip on playing the G chord and being able to change to other chords effortlessly that are not in other books. There are more tips, but these two tips have helped me accelerate my playing to a new level.
I also purchased the Leap Year book and I am looking forward to getting it. If the author writes another book, I will buy it too. I recommend using these two books, which will give you over 700 songs. Its cheaper than printing these songs off the internet (if you can find them).
