Since I bought this book online, I didn't know what the music would look like. I'm a beginner uke player, so perhaps this is fairly commonplace with uke music, but I was still surprised to see that there's no actual music (on the staff) and no strum patterns (which I find odd since the book is called "STRUM & Sing".) What you get are some very basic tabs (where the lyrics are written out and the chords printed above where there are chord changes). Chord diagrams are pictured above every song, which is great, but without the strum patterns I basically have to learn the songs by ear.

I still recommend this book to those who can figure out the strum patterns on their own. And even if you only strum once when the chord changes, the songs still sound nice (given that you're singing along, of course). But while most of the chords are easy enough for a beginner to handle, perhaps this book is better suited for those at the intermediate/advanced levels (especially if the player is prone to improvising strum patterns). The song selection, though, is phenomenal. If you can figure out how to strum the songs from the tabs, you need never buy another Jason Mraz book - you get songs from "Waiting for my Rocket to Come," "Mr. A-Z," "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things," and "Love is a Four Letter Word."
I'm taking lessons now, I can't wait to start on Jason's songs!
Unlike other fake books I have for the Ukulele, this contains no melody lines, no sheet music style layout. Just a print out of the words with the chord letters above them. And the formatting is pretty ugly. Returned it.
enjoying strumming and singing to mraz's melodies
Just as advertised and shipped fast.
This book is great! The songs are very easy to play for a beginner and the book has a ton of different music from Jason from all his cds.
I read many reviews for this book. it said very easy book for uklele but it really hard to practice.
