any ukulele books that just have scales (maybe chords). i know there are guitar books which just have thousands of scales, including arpeggios and the like. i was wondering if there is one for the uku. everytime i go to any stores they have song books not scale books.

if there is nothing out there il just have to transcribe the guitar to uku...:(

I don't know if it's exactly what you're lookin' for, but I was just looking tonight at the Hal Leonard Ukulele Chord Finder (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1423400429/ref=s9sims_c4_img1-rfc_g1_814831_176585_19389_25565_24015_18483_48986 _40147?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-4&pf_rd_r=1QKW4C7H1WE7A3S8HTBA&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=372728601&pf_rd_i=507846) and Hal Leonard Ukulele Method (http://www.amazon.com/Leonard-Ukulele-Method-Book-audio/dp/0634077260/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_b) books...

Then there's always Fretboard Roadmaps (http://www.amazon.com/Fretboard-Roadmaps-Ukulele-Essential-Patterns/dp/1423400410/ref=pd_sim_b_img_1)...

I don't have any of these, mind you, but I'm lookin' to get the chord finder and Fretboard Roadmaps.

Ok, I know this is probably not even close to what you are looking for, but as a n00b who's more or less teaching himself the Uke this has been an invaluble tool.

It's just a big chord chart that's folded in half and has a lot of the most used chords, as well as fingering suggestions and popular beginnings and endings.

It's a fabulous tool, one thats easy to take along with you where ever you go.
