Jim and Liz Beloff have done a sterling job with The Daily Ukulele. It is what it says it is: "365 Songs for Better Living". It includes a section on tuning, holding, strumming, transposing, and chord alternatives plus a chord chart for C6 tuning. The songs are in alphabetical order with a comprehensive index and cover a wide range of song choices from The Beatles, Elvis, Willie Nelson, to twenties and thirties favourites along with seasonal and children's songs. Chord diagrams are at the top of each song. I have used this book every day since I bought it - so it really is My 'daily ukulele'. Recommended, even for those who tune in D6.

This book is full of easy and slightly challenging songs. Great for around a campfire. I love that there is a section of Holiday Music as well as Kids Classics. Amazing value for the price.

Daily Ukulele changed my life for the better! Love it. Thanks Jim Beloff for the good times and good tunes! Easy to play and use for practices beginner-level chords and getting better at it. Now I am working on more advanced uke books but still come back to this one for fun :)

This book makes singing and playing the ukulele 'do-able' nearly immediately whether you read music or play by ear.
The Ukulele 101instructions at the beginning are clear and concise.
The chord boxes at the top of each song are invaluable and the chord progressions are interesting.
The format is large - important for people of a certain age.
Between this book and the Leap Year Edition are nearly all the songs you know.

Good book for anyone whether you sing and play quietly in a back room or get together with friends and family.

from someone who generally thinks there is nothing on this planet that is a "must have". Has lots of songs from the 60s and 70s that are just what I was looking for, as well as lots of older ones, Christmas songs and even songs for kids. Every time I look through the book, I find more songs I know, and want to learn. This book and the Leap Year Edition were recommended by Aunty Tutu, an entertainer and ukulele teacher, during our winter stay in Hawaii. She was right on the money!

This is a great song book and intro to a great little, portable and versatile instrument. It has the how to play section, a chord chart and then 365 songs with chords AND the first note of the songs. You get the words too! The selection is varied from old timey songs, to golden rock and roll and pop. It is lots of fun.

What I didn't like about the book is that is is BIG and heavy. It is good for home but not for travelling.

Excellent song book. Excellent for Ukuleles tuned in C. Not quite so excellent for ukuleles tuned in D. I can never figure out why people think C is the only ukulele tuning. It was Chalmers Doane who tuned it in D for kids and it stuck here. Would make sense to have it published in both tunings. Once I found ukulele material offered in both C and D tuning. That was great, excellent.

Love the book. Maybe another edition could include more children's songs. Even songs from today as more music is being played with ukuleles accompanying. Ukes rule!!
I really like all the pages with information about the ukulele including an extensive chord chart page. Just great value and my 3 grand daughters enjoy flipping through the pages trying new songs.

I recently discovered the ukulele and the simple joy it brings to my life and to that of so many other people I've met (not the ones who listen to me play, alas, but fellow players). So, while this title might seem a bit self- aggrandizing, I have to agree. These songs do make my life better. I'll bet the do the same for yours.
Of course you will need a uke...

Great for pros or beginners. I teach uke to seniors and recommend both volumes to my students. They love them.
