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.

Maybe some advice on how to choose a good beginners ukulele and avoid a bad one. Most of these are minor tweaks, rather than deal-breaking complaints. I've come back to these books as I'm now learning finger picking. I now realise what the author was trying to do. I think it is possible for a beginner to learn to play the ukulele - both strumming and finger-picking - from these two books. I don't think the learning experience would be overwhelming for the total beginner.

I guess that's the beauty of the author's teaching method. I've been playing uke for a little over a year, but I want to go beyond just strumming. This book is helping me begin to play melodies on the ukulele.

Ukulele Song Book

I have very little formal music education, so a beginner book like this is good for bridging that gap, as the emphasis is on working with the basics of notes and tablature as well as keeping in time. The exercises are clear, well laid out. Each one builds upon the previous work. Since I'm using kindle on an IPad, my one critique would be that some music pages are split up. This can be an issue if they won't appear together as you play. Of course, as you memorize each tune, this becomes less of an issue. I had purchased a physical copy of the book and misplaced it.

The physical copy doesn't include a CD; the audio files are online.

I am a former veteran intermediate guitarist and am now hooked on the baritone uke. It begins with basics and build up Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. It begins with basics and build up with well explained examples. I was expecting the book to jump in with chords so I was surprised to see that the program started with learning the notes on each string and the C major scale. That exercise was actually a good foundation for the chord lessons that followed!

The struming techniques were well illustrated. Really enjoyed this book and flew swiftly through the lessons in two weeks and came away feeling accomplished and ready for more. See all reviews.
