If you think you're getting in this book arrangements that sound like Ohta-san's videos, you will be disappointed. Each piece comprises nothing but the melody line and chord symbols. The beauty of Ohta-san's renditions is the timing he achieves between chordal rhythm and melody. This is missing in these written arrangements.
Herb does a great job playing the Ukulele. However, I found he moves through his music fast and some of the chords are hard to form the finger pattern on the fret board. I will have to break his music down and slow it down to be able to try an master his techniques. This may take several months or even years to complete. I like the fact that he has 26 songs with the chords, notes and words. His first song, DInah, has simple enough chords, but I have to learn the strumming technique to make it soung any good at all. I will listen to his CD over and over again to try and get it down.
this book is like a vocal edition book. it is not finger soloing arrangements that i was expecting. the versions are cut like what u would find in a "fake" book. to me, it's a waste of money. i have a free uke solo arrangement that i got off of youtube that herb ohta arranged full of orchestra chords for the single player. wish i could send it back
