Has anyone bought this yet?

(Blues book is towards the middle of the page)

I love his music theory book, and I love blues on the ukulele!
Just trying to choose between pdf and paper; pdf is faster & cheaper, but I'd probably print it out anyway - I vastly prefer paper over pixels for reading music.

Hi booksniffer I just received my copy of the book, nicely laid out with tab on one page and chords on the next or previous, challenging fingerpicking tab, but hey that's why I bought it, excellent thanks Mr Doleman

Wow, that was fast!
Glad to hear you're enjoying it. :)

I asked Phil if there were any audio or video files to go with the songs in the book. He sent me a link to a Youtube playlist:

and said that in time, those videos will be added to, also with ones that show his hands better.

oh that is good news, it arrived very fast I ordered it one day and it came the next day, I hope he adds them soon, the fingerpicking side of the songs are challenging, but not too hard, any video tutorials would be a great asset to the book, the chord versions are great fun though
