Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

As the title indicates, this series assumes an audience of absolute beginners but covers a surprising range of technique, music theory, and style in so few pages. There are extensive photos demonstrating stroke and fingerpicking styles, as well as chord fingerings, with full tunes on which to try them out. Suitable for teen and adult beginning musicians.

This book assumes that you know nothing about ukuleles. This is just what I needed. It takes you step by step through everything that you need to know. I am just starting out and know just enough to be dangerous. The book is well written, clear and concise. It shows chords and strumming patterns and includes finger picking. The finger picking starts out with using three fingers and then some songs and later includes more complete finger picking patterns. I have several other basic ukulele books and this one is the best for the person just starting out. If you want to learn to play the ukulele this is the book you need to begin with. It's well organized and progresses logically through the things you need to know. Highly recommended. Buy it you won't be disappointed.
