    I like this book a lot… I enjoy all the songs in this book that I know, and I can play with my ukulele in private, at the same time learn new songs. I let my friend borrow my very first book, and he loves it so much, that he has not returned it back. My second copy got caught in the rain when I went camping. So now I am looking for another one.

    This book is recommended by ukulele players . I have not used this book yet and would like to purchase and learn some of the Hawaiian songs. Most of the people in my ukulele class own this and use this frequently, especially the advanced players. So I would like to give this songbook a try and own it instead of making copies from other owners of this book.
