5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for both novices and more experienced players, 2 July 2011
This review is from: Ukulele For Dummies (Paperback)
Let me make it clear right from the start that I am a big fan of Mr Wood and his excellent ukulelehunt website. I have used his downloadable resources in the past, which have been both informative and helpful. Truth is though that you can't beat a book. When I heard that Al Wood was putting out a 'dummies' book I pre-ordered it straight away. It arrived today and I am not disappointed! This is 338 pages choc full of useful information AND includes a CD to demonstrate all of the key points. It is not just a 'how to play' book. It is also a good introduction to other aspects of the ukulele community, such as what to look for when you buy a ukulele, ukulele players of note, how to get more involved, zen and the art of ukulele maintenance etc all delivered in an easy to digest and often humorous way. I have been playing for 3 years but there will be much to keep me coming back to this book for years to come. Highly recommended!

Hi G
Thanks for the review. I have absolutely no experience of learning a musical instrument. Would this be a useful book as a start?

Without a shadow of a doubt, but if you want to test the water first visit the ukulelehunt.com beginners section.

Hi
Many thanks. I did just that - I spent about two hours looking at it and it's links. I've bought the book now and will read it before buying a uke.
