Includes a CD with arrangements of each song played and sung by Sokolow. Songs: Careless Love * John Hardy * Old Joe Clark * Sally Goodin * Take This Hammer * Turkey in the Straw * The Wabash Cannon Ball * Wildwood Flower * Will the Circle Be Unbroken * and 12 others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good collection Jan. 29 2012
By Paul Helbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the selection of songs, and I understand why they are arranged in the keys that they are in (for playing in groups of traditional musicians), but in many cases that means that they are not in the easiest keys for an ukulele. So, that makes this a beginner /intermediate level book in my estimation, rather than just entry level.

I found this interesting. I play bluegrass guitar, but on a ukulele, go figure. I purchased this and have had a lot fun with it. Great for family fun.
5.0 out of 5 stars an it is worth EVERY PENNY!!! May 9 2014
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has an explanation of different strumming patterns, picking and rolls, then each song has 3 arrangements; 1st- the music melody line and lyrics and chords and tabs for the Uke, and then 2nd- is strumming with chords and tabs and the 3rd is rolling with chords and tabs. This gives you everything you want!!! He also explains how to do certain exercises or strums on his cd, I am soooo pleased with this book and I almost didn't buy it because it was almost 20 bucks, I'm so glad I did!! After you learn these methods you can apply them to any of your songs! Oh I almost forgot, I also saw that Fred Sokolow has some youtube videos and in the "beginning for ukulele players" he demonstrates these strums and rolls - very helpful. I would very much recommend this to anyone trying to learn bluegrass on the ukulele, if you only get one book get this!!

Good book.When I heard the CD my first reaction was: "I love to play like this" which is a good starting point for a textbook.
I love that each song has three arangements, strum and sing along, strum with melody and fingerpicking.
So that enables play-along with my friends. Boosted my Ukulele experience.

The songs did not sound like bluegrass to me. I will try later as I progress but I put it away for now.
