I just purchased this book on eBay and the seller forgot to send the audio CD. I've contacted them and have no doubt that they will fix the issue but I was curious if anybody had the audio files in Dropbox or somewhere I might be able to access them? It'd save me the hassle of having to burn it anyway. I'm not even sure I have a CD player these days..

Great book BTW, just what I was looking for. Highly recommended to anybody looking to add some chord vocab, picking patterns and some stock riffs to you arsenal. Good for beginners and new to uke guitar players like myself.

Thanks in advance for any help. Now stop starring at a screen a go play your uke!

Hey guys, sharing audio files like this from a commercial product, without the author and/or copyright holder's permission, is a copyright violation. Yes, you bought the book and CD. But that's what you bought--a CD, not downloadable files. The right thing to do would be to wait for your CD to arrive and ditch the audio files.

My copy of the book didn't have a CD but had a code printed in the front so you could download the files.

I bought the Kindle version which comes with audio files built-in, negating the need for a CD. It works great on my iPad.

The exercises in the book are also great. I highly recommend it for beginner to intermediate players.

Wow. I feel like a fool. Deaks was correct, there is a code in the first page for downloading the files.

I really enjoy this book, I've slowly been picking at it for a few months now.

I quote the others, there isn't any CD with this book. on the first page there's a code, you insert that code in the mentioned site, and you download a zip folder with 40 tracks (1 per week).

I also have the book and while I like it, there are a few problems with it imo. At least for me the notion of spending only one week per week in the book isn't going to happen, it's completely unrealistic for a fairly new player. I also think that some techniques should be introduced much, MUCH later than they are in the book, from a beginner's perspective. Regarding the audio files, it's a shame there is only one per week because you might want to work on a specific exercise, but they are all put together in a single file and there isn't even any verbal separation between exercises.

On the plus side, it's a book full with great exercises and helpful and useful advice. I really like it, but would not in anyway reccommend it as a 40 week course.

Woops wrong thread, thought this was the review thread in the beginners' area. So don't mind me...

My edition came with a physical CD, not with a code (photo (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28292565/Photo%2027-05-16%2014%2049%2050.jpg)). Would have preferred a download as that would have saved the time for ripping the CD. :)

Hi locoloco:

What is your device? I have the book downloaded on my iPad, and have no problems with the audio files. I simply place my finger over the blue speaker icon which is above each exercise, and the audio plays.

Hi lfoo6952:
I have the kindle for computer and for android, but there is a message that says: "no audio file supported by your devie" how I fix this problem?

Hi locoloco:

I look up the description of the product on Amazon. This is what it states: Kindle Edition with Audio/Video: Audio/Video content is available on Fire tablets (except Kindle Fire 1st Generation) and iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices.

It doesn't seem to work on an Android device.

Sounds like you need to install an audio codec of some sort. :)

Mine came with a CD. I started out liking the book, but somewhere in the middle the exercises became so random that I was not learning anything that was relevant.

Anyone know where I can grab the audio files for this one? The Kindle Android version doesn't have the audio and there's no link in the book.

I tried emailing the publishers too but I never heard anything back.

there should be a code to be entered in the site

In the Kindle version?

In the printed version the code is inside the front cover. Kindle books normally start at the chapter one so try going to the cover and paging forwards from there.

It's not there. I found Chad's email right at the back so I've dropped him an email. Hopefully that will work.

Hi there, I also bought the kindle audio version only to find out afterwards my android device does not support the sound files. It sure is hard getting help out there to fix the problem or even to return it and buy the hard copy. I'm so disappointed and hope others don't make the same mistake.

Turns out I could return the Kindle version that does not work with android and does not include the audio file access code. I will buy the hard copy as it sounds like a great book that includes a CD or the audio file access code.

Hi, I just bought this book on amazon, the kindle for mac version, and also the audio doesn't work there is no access code or link or anything :( any tips what to do?

The Kindle versions don't come with the download link because the audio should be embedded. The list of Kindles the book is compatible with are under "available on these devices" on the Amazon product page. Sadly, it does not work with the browser-based Kindle Cloud Reader or the Kindle App (at this time no embedded audio/video works with the cloud reader or apps). If it doesn't work with your device, you can return it for a refund within 7 days of purchase.
