Wow, congratulations! The harder exercise is possible every day from now on. Please note tendonitis.
It which I ordered does not yet arrive. Can't wait!

Excuse me for being dumb, but is his book a tutor or transcribed pieces?

That was always my downfall in piano--my middle finger is tall compared to the pinky. I don't know how I'm going to do those stretches. Jake has spider-fingers,apparently. BUt it's a pretty book and I like listening and reading the music along with the songs.

Just got mine and it's transcribed, looks like it's going to be a challenge.

As UkuRoll said, these are tabbed transcriptions. I did a REVIEW (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/1458413772/bge-20) of the book and go through my impressions as a not-exactly-beginner (because I passed the not a beginner test on another thread here.) Let's say advanced beginner. But I've been playing music for more than fifty years so I have some knowledge of music and passed on my feelings on the book and how it relates to a uke player like me.
