It was helpful in learning the basics of ukulele, but I had really hoped that it would have covered more advanced things too. Half the book was full of super easy kids songs that don't even use chords, and I had really hoped to learn more about chords and strumming. I bought this book hoping I could learn to accompany myself rather than play easy tunes, and I was a little disappointed in the contents of the book.

Send report. We bought this book together with our Ukulele. It is easy to follow and will teach the basics of playing Ukulele. Far easier than playing guitar. It is not going much further as beginner. But that is as expected. Read all reviews Rate product. Add to Basket.

I have no rhythm and I'm tone deaf. Learning music, even on the delightful and charming ukulele, is a chore for me unlike anything most people can imagine.
This is one of two books I constantly fall back on to refresh my most fundamental skills, to remind myself the differences between minor and major scales, to guide my clumsy fingers as I strum chords, pluck melodies, or just play around with different combinations of sounds.
I cannot count the number of "learn to play the ukulele" books in my library, but this is one of two that I replace every time the covers tear, the pages get ruined by spilled coffee, or my current copy gets lost. Everything the beginner needs is here, presented in a smooth,natural progression from the very first notes to complex strum patterns interlaced with a variety of flourishes and melodies. I almost threw this Ukulele out on more than one occasion.
First when I tried to play it with the "instructions" it came with finally figured out the instructions weren't for a baritone at all! I was so upset and frustrated I was almost in tears.
Then I tried reading the instructions. Yes actually sitting and reading from the cover. That's when I found the Audio link and thus the Ukulele was saved from a pretty roaring fire I had going. I figured out I'm trying to play chords when the instructions begin with individual notes. Picking rather than strumming if you will. Paired book and Audio, I finally started to get it and once I did I had to leave a review. I was honestly packing it up to give to my nephew until tonight. The Audio visual learning this inexpensive book provides is absolutely the best.
If you are like me and done know the first thing about playing a ukulele, I highly highly recommend this author! This book, along with the second book in the series, is a complete course for teaching the beginner to play the ukulele. It's designed to take a total beginner and teaches them to play. You have to start at the beginning and progress your way through to the end - it doesn't work to just dip in the middle.
The author's approach is a bit unusual because he starts off teaching finger-picking individual notes to create melodies tunes. Most books or classes start by teaching strumming chords, singing at the same time. In this book, chords are taught later. Some music theory is also taught, but not to a major degree. I actually bought this book then joined a class. The book's approach didn't mesh with the class's approach which emphasised strumming songs , so I put the books aside.
It was only much later, after attending the classes for about 18 months great fun, by the way , and reading about ukulele playing and music in general that I began to appreciate the clever way this book is put together. It's pitched to the total beginner. It doesn't ask too much, and gradually builds the learner up.
The songs are chosen to be playable by the beginner. It also introduces some music concepts along the way.
The CD is very good at demonstrating the play described in the book and the author gives further explanation. I think the CD is essential to the book. The book is not without it's faults, but most of these are minor. I think an explanation of it's approach and what the student will be able to do at the course's end would have been helpful.
Perhaps some further advice on how to go about practicing would have been good. Some descriptions of the likely difficulties a student might encounter as they are learning and how to get over them would have been useful and encouraging. For example, the awkwardness of getting your left hand into the correct position to form the chords, and also discomfort and slowness changing chords.
Perhaps more explanation of how the individual techniques being taught fit into the big picture of playing ukulele songs. What do they contribute?
Maybe some advice on how to choose a good beginners ukulele and avoid a bad one. Popular Features. New Releases. Description Ukulele.
