The book, Famous Solos and Duets for the Ukulele, edited and arranged by John King has some wonderful pieces, several by Ernest Ka'ai, a well known early 20th century Hawaiian musician. The book has an excellent preface of ukulele history. There are also some advanced strumming pieces that are very difficult to play well (John was a master musician. If you've never seen or heard him play, search his name and ukulele on youtube. His right had technique was impeccable) The book is well worth it if you are looking for some lovely picking pieces. It also comes with a cd of John playing the pieces.
Regards,
Ray

Almost all of Herb Ohta Jr's songs are super relaxing.
