    Default best ukulele book of tunes

    I know this may be something everyone asks but I am looking for a Ukulele book for my wife. She just bought a decent ukulele, she is also a classically trained marimba player so basic music issues are not an issue. But something to the point, with chord shapes and songs. Any ideas anyone?

    If you are looking to purchase try Jumpin Jim's 365 songs for ukulele.

    AKA "The Daily Ukulele."

    It's a good mix of pop, folk, standards, oldies, kids, holiday, etc. You can access a list of the tunes here:

    I just wish there was a PDF or kindle edition of the "Daily Uke", it would be easier to use on a tablet, or print particular songs for one's personal music folder...

    You read my mind. If I had the patience I'd take a picture of the pages and download it on my ipad. But I can spend that time playing instead.

    A PDF version would probably cost you way more in ink/paper to print it than just buying the original printed version.

    It's a big volume (over 300 pages), well worth the price IMO. If I want particular songs for one of my personal music folders, I can always copy the pages out of the book. Since I already bought and paid for the book, I don't see any issue with photocopying a few pages out of it for the convenience factor for my own personal use. They already made their profit off me and I'm not distributing it to anyone else.
