    Here's some previous comments regarding the Tab Book . . . with Jake's schedule, it be hard telling when it'll be completed.

    pa`a ka waha.

    Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth.
    Thus one learns.

    Jake has approved the book, it is in Hal Leonards hands They've been working on formating the book. From what I've been told, it's about done. They'll hold it for final approval, "release" it at NAMM in January, and stores should have it by April 2012

    George, do you have tabs for Blue Roses Falling?

    Amazon has this to say about it:

    Jake Shimabukuro - Peace Love Ukulele
    Our folio features note-for-note transcriptions of all of Jake's amazing playing on this 2011 release that features 12 tracks: Bohemian Rhapsody * Boy Meets Girl * Bring Your Adz * Hallelujah * Pianoforte 2010 * Variation on a Dance 2010 * While My Guitar Gently Weeps * and more. "In the hands of Shimabukuro, the traditional Hawaiian instrument of four strings and two octaves is stretched and molded into a complex and bold new musical force. On an album like his new Peace Love Ukulele, Jake and his uke effortlessly (it seems) mix jazz, rock, classical, traditional Hawaiian music and folk, creating a sound that's both technically masterful and emotionally powerful...and utterly unique in the music world." -Amazon editorial review.
