101 Hits For Ukulele is a bumper collection of 101 easy-to-play songs that will get you strumming and singing along to the best old and new tunes.

Each song included in this compendium features full lyrics, chord symbols and the melody line - everything you need to sound exactly like the record. With such a fantastic selection of songs, there is something from every era, to suit every taste. Classic songs like Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix, Stand By Me by Ben E. King and Dusty Springfield's Son Of A Preacher Man are included to satisfy the '60s-lover in you. On the other hand, contemporary Ukulele classics like I'm Yours by Jason Mraz and Hey, Soul Sister by Train were basically made to be played on a summer's evening among friends. To see the entire list of songs included, please see below.

The beauty of the Ukulele is that its recent resurgence in popularity has meant that more and more popular songs are including the instrument, while basically any song from the past sounds great on one. With the sheet music in this songbook, you will never be stuck for tunes to pick up and play, and with the most accurate transcriptions of the best songs from today and yesterday, you and your Uke can put a fun and bright spin on all of these familiar hits.

The book is sturdy and folds flat so is as easy as possible to use, and the range of genres and styles covered makes the 101 Hits For Ukulele an essential addition to any serious or casual Uke player's repertoire.

        This book is very good if you want to practice lots of chord changes without getting bored and I would recommend as good practice for beginners if used with a chord dictionary.
        some of the chords are either wrong or named wrong, when picking the tunes out on piano (cos I didn't know them) there are sharps and flats signs missing and it could do with being A4 size as its a bit small for my old eyes
