This book includes 29 classic gospel songs arranged for chord solo style ukulele. In this style, the melody is voiced on the highest string while the chord or harmony note is voiced in the lower strings. The result is an attractive presentation that needs no additional instrumentation. Guitar chords are included if accompaniment is desired. The tunes represent the rich palette of hymns, songs and spirituals in the Christian tradition. The book is recommended for all levels, and comes with accompanying audio.
