FF40US The Guitalele Chord Bible
I love this chord book. The diagram is big and clear, and it also gives the interval information of the chord too. I can use this for both ukulele (first 4 strings ) or guitalele ( I am getting one..it has not delivered yet ). I first considered using guitar chords book and just transposing them to guitalele chords, but I decided it would be too combersome. I am glad I bought this. I was surprised this is 1 st edition and just published in January of this year. I thought this book is a bit pricy but since I do not find guitarlele chord book anywhere, it is understandable.'

'I was using a guitar chord book and transposing everything up a fourth, but this makes everything a LOT easier! Nice book and a good addition to my Ukulele Chord Bible I bought a few years ago.'
