Book: Jumpin’ Jim’s ’60s Uke-In

This was one of the first Ukulele songbooks I ever bought.  Up until this point I was searching on Youtube and Google and whatnot trying to find guitar tabs and then translating the fingering to learn fun songs.  While that was certainly educational, it was also a bit of a hassle.  So, I decided that I needed a good book and I wanted one with fun songs (especially Tiptoe Through the Tulips, by Tiny Tim).  Then I found Jumpin' Jim's '60s Uke-In: Ukulele Solo (Paperback).

Check out the songs you can learn (from the description on Amazon):

Jumpin' Jim's '60s Uke-In is a collection of 25 fab songs from the 1960s arranged for the very first time for ukulele. It includes lots of big Beatles hits (All My Loving * Eight Days a Week * Here Comes the Sun * Michelle * Penny Lane * Something * When I'm Sixty-Four * Yellow Submarine * and more) as well as other classic '60s tunes, such as: Daydream Believer * Georgy Girl * Happy Together * Moon River * Those Were the Days * and more. Features an appreciation by George Harrison, a foreword by Jumpin' Jim, a chord chart, and a groovy, psychedelic cover.

This thing normally sells for $14.95 (and I find some at Amazon for that price) but then I found it listed for $10.17.  That's a great deal!
