Every one of us should get one. As I've said before, think of all Jake has done for us.

I'm getting one and there's no way I'll be able to play any of that stuff.

Ooh, I didn't even know this thing was really happening. Hopefully I can point all the people contacting me for tabs via Youtube toward this book from now on. :p

YES!!!!! Been waiting for this one. Hope this is just the first of many to come-- I want the official tabs for a lot more of his songs than this. We better all buy several copies so there is more incentive for them to publish more. I pre ordered 3 :)

Im kind of surprised he didnt do a sort of compilation tab book. Some of his other songs would be higher in demand than some of the songs off his new cd. Im thinking songs like Let's Dance, Me and Shirley T, Blue Roses Falling, etc.

Im definitely happy in any case, just an observation.

Im thinking songs like Let's Dance, Me and Shirley T, Blue Roses Falling, etc.I'm not surprised. Remember the publisher is looking ahead to selling Jake's next songbook. If all the favorite songs are included in the first book, few will want to buy the next one.

It's the same mindset that "forced" us to buy an album/CD of 10+ songs just to get 2-3 songs that we liked. The record companies hated it when Napster forced them to eventually agree to a deal with Apple's iTunes. In fact, they're still fighting it to this very day.

The sheet music publishers have not really learned from that history and continue to try and sell digital sheet music at essentially the same price as printed sheet music. Piracy is almost certain to grow and then maybe they'll drop the prices. By that time, an entire generation of musicians will be accustomed to "free" pirated sheet music. It'll be tough to shift them to pay even 99.

I really hope the Gently Weeps album is next for Lets Dance, Blue Roses and a few others. Im not all that optimistic though because I cant see them releasing the gently weeps tabs on this book and then following up with that album. My fingers are crossed though...

The 'Gently Weeps' album. What I wouldn't pay to have a tab book for that, most of my favourites are on there.

Pre ordered and can't wait.

Is the book going to have tabs or be in the form of traditional sheet music?

I imagine it will have both.

Not to slag on uke players, but most of them (myself included) couldn't play strictly from standard notation. The classical uke books I have (5 of them) also include tab along with the standard notation.

Anyone else notice that the amazon price has dropped from $13.49 to $11.35? Since I pre-ordered/pre-paid with a price guarantee, I presume they will refund the difference when they ship?
