This book is so good you could get by with no others. Well put together with easy turn pages and a good selection of music genres... plenty for everyone.. i had to buy a 2nd copy when a friend snaffled my 1st. Definitely value for money.
As an old amateur singing strummer, strumming singer ( sort of) I found this collection to have the best arrangements both for singing and playing that I’ve ever used/had. The keys are friendly. The arrangements (to me) sound really good. Although the chord diagrams are for the ukulele, the arrangements work well for the piano and guitar as well. Also nice collection of songs not always found in other collections. Hands down my favourite song collection.
- Das Buch ist banal - die Akkorde sind einfach die Standardakkorde, nie man überall recherchieren kann, - kein Voicelead oder ähnliches - wer Gitare spielt u m Akkorden Erfahrung hat, braucht das buch nicht,
Viele Lieder aus verschiedenen Genres, sowohl ältere als auch aktuelle Poptitel. Alle sind mit Ukulelengriffen versehen. Viele Lieder stehen in der Originaltonart. Gute Harmonisierung. Ich kann es weiterempfehlen.
What a beast of a fake book. It's huge and almost collapses my music stand! Literally hundreds of popular songs from the early 20th century to just a few years ago, with a heavy sprinkling of classic rock, C&W and pop of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 1990s. The musical notes are large and easy to read from two or three feet away. As others have indicated, this is just a normal fake book—not really an ukulele book—that you can use for any concert pitch instrument. So it works well for piano or guitar. You do need to be decent at music reading as there is no TAB and the chords are written as normal chord symbols, i.e., no chord boxes below the chord names. A few reviewers have commented that these are not exact transcriptions. Well, yes, these are leadsheets and by definition lead sheets are a basic outline of the song. The players are supposed to improvise, i.e., fake, the missing details, hence the term "fakebook." Great collection and I'n glad I bought it!
This book has a wide array of songs, a decent mix of current and classics. I enjoy the book, but my main complaint is that many of the songs are oversimplified. Chords are often watered down to their basic major forms, and thus some songs sound slightly "off" when you play them. If you are a beginner, this is a good book. If you have been playing a while, some of the arrangements will annoy you.
