It would seem that previous reviewers shared the opposite opinion. This may be because they have more experience with playing the ukelele or more familiarity with some of the songs. For someone who has been playing for less than a year, let me strongly suggest starting with the first version of this book (but not the Kindle version!). Afterwards, I would still recommend buying the Leap Year version. I am happy that I own it and will certainly purchase any further editions that the authors publish.
Also, just like the first book, there are traditional songs and pop/classic rock from the 50's on, including some from the 90's and the 00's (which is really cool!)
Fear not friends, if you are looking for an addition to your uke music library, you can't go wrong with this book.
Also, the plastic comb binding itself is of a much higher quality than that of the first book. I'm not sure if it's related or what, but it is :)
As far as the content, this one is more advanced than the previous edition (the yellow book, as we call it) which is great.
I cut my teeth on both of the big beloff books; sit and play through these and you will get an excellent grasp of Uke playing and the western cannon of popular music.
I've had the pleasure of meeting the Beloffs and they are lovely, dedicated people. Always good to know the people behind the scenes are worthy of support.
1. Lots of these songs are played in a key much to high for me to sing along comfortably with (mezzo soprano here)
2. The selections seems much more obscure than the first book- which I really like.
3. Why- oh why for the love of all things- does the author not put a suggested strum pattern or two on the page so that beginner and intermediate players who don't quite know which strum patterns to use has that reference? And heaven forbid we get a finger pick pattern too!!
I have played out of many song books and these are by far the most gratifying.
