    Default Chord Melody Method for Uke by Jerry Moore

    I just got this book in the mail yesterday and find it really useful... I do a lot of strumming and only use the first five frets... I wanted to expand my skill level and use the whole fret board... I don't read music or know much about about music theory... I like this book, plenty of diagrams and easy to understand...

    I got mine from Amazon.com - http://www.amazon.com/Chord-Melody-M...6158214&sr=8-1

    Thanks, that looks like a real good book! 105 pages that seem to cover just about everything and all for $20. Gotta get one!

    I just got it too about a month ago, hoping to get time to sit down and study it in depth, only a few pages in so far. Thanks for bring it to everyone's attention.
