I've been a lover of guitalele for a few years now,(much to the dismay of some 4 string purists) and see it as an extension of the uke,much like you see 5 and 6 string bass guitars,5 string violins,and so forth. However there isn't a lot of books out there about them. This book is a goldmine.
Personally speaking,I never really understood the importance of scales till I taught myself fiddle. Then it became crystal clear: to know where all the notes are going to be in a given key,to make learning a song a whole lot easier. Why? because it gives you the neighborhood map of where each note is going to be,and prevents you having to wander parts of town you really don't need to explore for any given scale.
In this sense Benjamin has mapped the world. Not only do we have the most common,such as major,but the book covers exotic flavors like Hindu,Spanish Gypsy,Egyptian,Enigmatic,Bebop,pentatonic and much much more.
There are 8 scale diagrams given per page,showing the full fretboard and,and if that weren't enough,the back of this tome has 7 pages of numerous moveable patterns.The author thought of everything!
For both the 4 and 6 string ukulele player,get this and you'll never,ever need another uke scale book. The only improvements I would make would be to have this be spiral bound for ease of use (which can be done inexpensively at places like Staples) and perhaps bigger diagrams for more mature eyes. He does include the scale in standard notation above each fretboard diagram but they are dinky.
This book opens up galaxies of new sounds and melodies to be explored,and belongs in every ukulele player's library! Order your copy below thru my Amazon link:
