    Of course Ziret! Please feel free to share the book with your uke group. Just note through that Country Roads was written by John Denver and not Bob Denver as I put in the book. It's a mistake I will later correct.

    Luke, glad you like the book. The versions of the 1960s and a couple more modern songs songs are jazzed or at least slightly jazzed up as a nod to the jazz era. Not strictly 1920s or 1930s, but wanted to put a few songs in there people may recognize. There is one David Bowie (Dead Man Walking) song I simply didn't know how to Jazz up so I stuck it in there just because I like it. I sort of apologize for this in the book's intro... Ha ha

    Ha, Gilligan wrote Country Roads.

    I don't think this should be in Shameless Self Promotion. It's Selfless Self Promotion. It should be in the songs portion, whatever that's called.

    This is fantastic! Thank you so much for your generosity. You must have poured in hours and hours of work into this gem. I love the graphics, they make the book so much more interesting.
    A day without playing uke is a day not well lived.

    Your welcome Lapyang!

    Thanks Booli. If you do end up having any feedback, I’d love to hear it. I haven’t had anyone proof read or test out the songs or book as a whole other than me.

    Thanks so much for telling me! I thought my book had quietly disappeared into the archives...

    Wow! You put a lot of time and effort into making this book. Scrolling thru the pages takes you back to the days when you could pick up a catalogue and order a ukulele for $1.25.

    Thank you.

    Tim, thank you for all your hard work. I look forward to playing through it and investigating some new voicings and different arrangements. One criticism (as someone else pointed out), the editor in me wants to recommend that the book be condensed to just Tin Pan Alley songs. It will be more cohesive and impactful. While there are some very nice newer songs, I would save them for another book. They distract from from the cool theme you have going on and jar with the text and graphics. I would go no further than the 40s, for sure. Music takes a whole different turn in the 50s and again in the 60s. Something for another project.
