Hi,

First, massive thanks to Justin for getting me going on guitar and ukulele. I got my uke book just over a week after ordering here in Canada despite the Xmas mails. The typesetting and graphics are superb. The book is not coil bound and there is no ebook yet. The range of songs by genres will satisfy all. Justin has added his personal touch to many of the arrangements. After the first few pages he wades deeper than his first lessons taught me, but his uke songbook videos are coming out. Noobs may do well to use a complete method in addition realizing Justin is focusing on chord strumming with only a little finger style. You will be learning lots of chords and sorting out progressions. He gives at least one strum pattern plus a few hints for each song; he has a really great percussive pattern for "Stand By Me" and his arrangement of Cohen's (proudly Canadian) "Hallelujah" is the best I've seen for uke. I would recommend to all novices and in particular to those learning both guitar and uke through Justin. Well done and best wishes.
