Must have Uke book!
on September 19, 2017
If you only buy one ukulele book, get this one. The Yellow Book is how I learned. The song choices are excellent and a good survey of some of our most popular western music. All classics. I used to sit with this book for hours and play and not know where the time went. We use this and the Blue Book at many ukulele events.
Play though this, and even take some time to learn songs that you don't know as well. Your playing with improve. You'll get a great chord vocabulary under your belt. You'll also get an understanding of how sheet music is presented. It's great having the actual notes and bars.
Hiding in the back of the book, under "children's songs" are some excellent tunes, including rainbow connection and You've got a friend in me.
I have this one on kindle. While there are some drawbacks to the formatting, it works for me. Two page songs are more difficult to get to and it will not scale well on PC. It's tricky to scale. That's more a fault in the kindle software than the book.
