4.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners 27 Jan 2013
By Kerry G
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this ebook as an introduction to learning the uke. It has great explanations and some photos to help guide. The only downside I have found so far is that it is a bit tricky to read the music/frets , even when enlarged on the Kindle screen. I think I am just used to having a music book that you can flick back and forwards through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to playing the Ukele 25 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought as part of the package with a Ukele for my husband who has got only a rudimentary knowledge of reading music. with this guide he was playing simple tunes within 15 minutes of starting the book. I can play the piano and found it very easy to use the book to quickly play a range of the tunes. Would recommend this book.

I am a complete beginner, but this book (after an hour) has given me the confidence that I will be able to achieve some level of competence. Very clearly written, no annoying hype.
