Are you musical? Are your kids musical?
One thing being musical myself is that I always look for music books and sheet music in thrift shops. You frequently see what must be a collection that has been donated. In the 50-70's many good song books were published with good bindings, and containing familiar folk songs and other popular songs - meant to be sung at the piano (or to a guitar) - most are chorded, an added plus. These chords were probably added for the guitar, but they are also great for me, a ukulele player (if they are not too hard!)
This weekend for $1.49 each I pickup up a 255 page Nostalgic Years in Song book, and a Reader's Digest Treasury of Song (288 pages with a wire binding).
Both were in good shape, but I did have to tape the broken binding of the Nostalgic Songs. Even new, these cost $8 or more - and today would be twice or three times as much. So you have to agree that $1.49 apiece is a good deal.
Lots of music to pluck my ukulele to!
