I have agonized over whether or not to post this, don't want to upset anyone.

A while back I ordered the Mike Lynch Chord Melody series of books one to five, I received books 4 and 5 but not books one to three.

This all happened around the time Mike passed away.

I am not out of pocket, however would still love to have the last three volumes, Mike was a great teacher and very gifted musician, I loved his tuition video's.

If anyone has these volumes and is willing to share them please PM me perhaps we can work something out.

Send an e-mail to the PayPal address. His daughter now fulfills the orders, and she has access to the PayPal account. She will be able to see that you paid $90 and send you the missing books.

She doesn’t check the account as much as her dad did—so it can take two days—but since Mike’s passing, I have ordered the last two books at different times and I have received both.

Agreed with Chiorguy. I have contacted his daughter twice this week and both times were successful.

i just found about this great loss to all last week. I was aware of the chord melody books, but had not bought any. I decided to just buy all 5 knowing that they would not be around forever even though they are pdf's. The response only took a day. I had read a thread on this forum that reference's a url that discusses all the items for sale. That url referred to another url where the Paypal button is.

I was not aware that Mike had a signature OU6W. In fact, I was not aware of a wide neck. I bought an OU6W on Amazon and it's a big help to me with my thicker fingers. I can now play the D chord. Very nice uke with decent resonance. Well made and I like the appearance with the abalone border.

The order was placed and payment made in early January, have sent numerous emails during the past month, still no response.

Have been in touch with Paypal, they are unable to make contact either.

My experience as well: no response to anything. I will keep trying.

If you want to DM me your addresses, I’d be happy to contact her directly (I had been in communication after her father passed away) and see if I can help you out. It’s possible that filters are trapping messages...that’s happened to me.

I was just about to place an order for these books when I saw this thread. Now I'm a little concerned about ordering. Should I be?

I just ordered twice last week. Both times went smoothly. Be sure to specify which book you want in that special note box on the PayPal screen.

I went to the website to order and I don't see a Paypal button for payment. Is it the button that says Donate? Do I put in the payment amount there and then put in what books I want somewhere else?

Choirguy

What you do is send PayPal via that button, and indicate what books you are ordering. Mike’s daughter will then send them to you, and if you don’t receive them, write back and ask to be sent the books individually. I think it is awesome that Mike’s daughter is continuing to sell the materials.

Thanks. Order placed. Since I'm not the greatest singer, chord melodies are my best friends. Many of the ones I've learned up until now, I learned from Mike's videos.

As it turned out in my case at least, the issue seemed to be the size of the files. When Mike and later his daughter sent more than one book per email, I received nothing. When his daughter sent each one as a separate email I received them with no problem.

Similar to my experience as well--two per email worked for me, but more than that caused issues.

Are these physical books or just PDF? How soon after ordering should I expect something & will I get a confirmation email for the order?

It is just a PDF. Or multiple PDFs depending on which “books” you orders.

I received mine within a couple hours, but that was from Mike (incidentally, just three days before his passing) so not sure about now.

Mike's daughter Dianne sent mine within 24 hours.

I placed the order three days ago and have received nothing. I'll send an email today.

If you ordered more than one book, request that they be sent individually.

Still no books and no reply to the email I sent yesterday. Does anyone have a different email other than the payment@ukulelemikelynch.com

I too recently ordered Mike's melody chord eBooks (Feb 17) and have not heard anything back yet. I sent an email to the theukuleleman2012 address two days ago as well.

If anyone hears back please let us know.

I was wondering if they were going to carry on. I'm glad to hear his materials will still be available. He leaves quite a legacy.

It would be really nice if someone could help them set up a Gum Road store or something similar.

I e-mailed today suggesting SendOwl, which is used by John Baxter and Chordette/ukefarm.com.

All books received. Getting one or two at a time worked without a problem. Great stuff. I'll have plenty to keep me busy for quite awhile.
Thanks to Diane for sharing Mike's great gift of ukulele music.

Amen.

Dianne sent my my eBooks yesterday. Now I just need to get them all printed out and spiral bound.

For now mine will just stay on my computer, and I'll print them out as I go. But, I do prefer to have a hard copy, so that will be my next task. Print them out, put them in page protectors, and get a nice three ring binder for them.

Where I have been since 2011 is to use an iPad for all of my music. Life changed a lot last June when I decided to upgrade to the 2nd generation 12.9” iPad Pro. Note: for music reading, the 1st generation would be JUST FINE...I do a lot of other stuff on this device including the creation of my play along videos (http://www.youtube.com/ukuleletenor).

At any rate, the PDFs live in forScore (user friendly once you get the hang of it...I might make new tutorial videos) along with all my other music. If you love paper, I won’t argue with you...but I’ll never turn back.

Incidentally, I just bought the Mel Bay Favorite Ukulele Song Book in PDF...so very pleased to see if offered in this format. When things are available and affordably priced (i.e. cheaper than the printed version, as you don’t have to print, bind, ship, and store—and you could theoretically continue to make corrections to a song or book) there’s no reason to look for a “free” (i.e. illegal) solution. Here’s hoping the whole printed music industry follows!

Well, now it seems Iím having the same problems. I ordered one book. Iíd love to eventually get them all. If I could just get one. Iíve emailed twice to both addresses.

If anyone has not received their books you can get a Lynch phone number if you open a resolution with PayPal. It sounds like a home phone. I just called and left a message so we will see how that goes.

Edited to say Woohoo, got my book!
