Hey folks.

Have any of you ever tried one of the Hal Leonard Play-Along books?

I got the Hal Leonard Johnny Cash Ukulele Play-Along Volume 14 Book/CD.

It has a Demo version and a Play-Along version of each song.

"Just follow the written music, listen to the CD to hear how the ukulele should sound, and then play along with the separate backing tracks."

I can't tell the deference between the two tracks. Maybe its my ears.

Anyone else try and play along with this CD?

These books are a lot of fun. I have the Bob Marley one (#26) and the Bluegrass Favorites (#12). The songs on the CDs do differ, but sometimes the difference is subtle. I've found the tempos can be challenging. So what I do is, I transfer the CDs to mp3, and then play them on a Tascam DR-05. The tascam let's me slow down the song without changing the pitch. With headphones on, I can play along to with the CD and hear uke at the same time. Works like a charm.
