I decided to purchase a guitalele as my first instrument. It was inexpensive, very portable, and should be a nice introduction into guitar when I decide to try that.

That being said, there aren't exactly "guitalele" song books. For those that don't know, the guitalele is tuned A-D-G-C-E-A. It is like having a capo on the 5th fret. So far, I've been going through "30 Easy Spanish Guitar Solos" and been enjoying it tremendously. But I also purchase some ukulele song books; problem is, strumming upwards is nearly impossible since it means avoiding the top two base strings... and thus, I can't play many of the songs in an ideal fashion (I simply strum downwards all the time).

So, I was wondering if anyone could recommend some songbooks for a beginner. I don't have any strong music genre-preferences... just want something that will sound great solo and that has tabs. Tabs are a must.

Perhaps there are songbooks for guitars that normally place a capo on the 5th fret... that would be awesome.

Thanks =)
