This book is just perfect. Whether you are a beginner or have been playing the uke for a while its a great way to learn bits and pieces. My favourite part is that is introduces you not only to PLAYING the ukulele but the instrument itself which most people tend to neglect as important when learning to play. To get the most out of your uke you have you to KNOWN your uke and this book really stresses that. It also briefly touches on musical theory, such as the mentions of dynamics which is an invaluable lesson for any musician.
