The e-book is sold as a bundle, which contains three different versions:
- A booklet with solo arrangements, like in volume 1. PDF example page
- A “Spielheft” booklet with melody score, chords, and some lyrics (not for all tunes).
PDF example page
- A “Tabulatur” booklet with simplified tabs for the melody and fret diagrams for the chords.

Another booklet complements the “Spielheft”, thereby all pieces can be accompanied in their original key. A complementary booklet contains general hints and performance notes for all solo arrangements.
Basically, this e-book is suited for all kinds of ukulele players: Beginners, pros, solo players and rhythm players. The level of difficulty is very diverse. The solo arrangements are generally a bit more demanding than the “Spielheft” or the “Tabulatur” booklet. However, there are also some very easy solo arrangements. The most difficult piece (The Queen of the Night) is a challenge even for skilled players, though.
Within each chapter, the pieces are roughly assorted by difficulty. The chapters will always start with the easiest pieces.
(Please note that the MP3 and video recordings are not always 100% identical with the arrangements. However they always represent very well how the respective arrangement can be played with the ukulele.)
