5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand and enjoyable 11 Oct 2011
By Ermita
I struggled to find a book that would teach me musical notation on the ukulele. I am a few pages onto the course, but I feel comfortable with the material as it is well explained and demonstrated. I wish I had been aware of its existence before, having bought ukulele books that were not very useful and only taught me to strum a few patterns. After a few sessions, I can now play simple tunes!

With the Hal Leonard Method I have a book that teaches me musical notation and strumming and has a follow up book 2. The content is both enjoyable and challenging and I recommend it to anyone who wants to do more with the uke than just strum.

With this book, and with the follow on book 2, I feel I can take my uke playing to a level I didn't feel I could achieve with other instruction books.

Do yourself a favour, go buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but maybe not for absolute beginners 4 Sep 2011
The Hal Leonard Ukulele Method Book 1 is an excellent teaching book that teaches both strumming and playing tab (single notes played on individual strings), along with playing 12 bar blues and some more advanced techniques such as playing tremello. It also introduces you to how to read music, for those who've never learned. It goes at a good pace so you can work through it at your own speed with each lesson building on the previous so you move along. Okay so playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and the like may be a little boring at times, but they're nice easy tunes so you're not just playing repetative exercises all the time.

However I would not recommend this book for absolute novices who have never held a ukulele in their lives before now. I think it starts off a little too complicated. There are many other excellent books and websites out there to get you started. Once you've got going a little bit, maybe even to the point of learning a couple of easy songs, then this is absolutely the book to get you on and get you progressing further - especially if you want to learn to read music alongside chord charts, or if you want to move on to playing melodies on strings. This is definately the book to turn to to start turning yourself from a beginner to what I would want to call an intermediate player, where you're maybe attempting things slightly more complicated than 3 chord 4/4 timed easy tunes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good First Step 4 Jun 2011
This is a good introduction to the Uke, especially for the younger player but it will also come in handy if you're advancing in years. It is well designed with a good clear layout and it's progression is well paced. The first half of the book trawls through the old 'Mary had a Little Lamb', 'Frere Jacques' standards which can become pretty tiresome but I suppose will help the beginner. The second half really comes into it's own with some blues tunes and some tricky chords.

Give it a try.
