Product description

From the Back Cover

Improve your ukulele playing ― fast! ― with hundreds of fun exercises, drills and practice tunes

You got yourself a ukulele and taught yourself to play a passable ′Happy Birthday,′ but now you′re ready to take it to the next level. You′ve come to the right place. This exercise book is your ticket to becoming a bona fide ukulele hero. It supplies expert tips, tricks and plenty of jammin′ exercises that will have you strumming and picking your way through everything from the classic ukulele tunes to cool jazz progressions, intricate instrumental pieces and blues riffs like a pro ― in no time. And if you′re brand–new to the uke, you′ll find a lot to like here as well.

  • Brush up on the fundamentals ― discover how to hold your ukulele; play common chords; read ukulele notation and tab, chord diagrams, neck diagrams, and rhythm charts
  • Start practising on the right foot ― shorten your learning curve with pre–practice warm–ups, including finger– and hand–stretches, breathing exercises, and strength–building exercises
  • Do some serious strumming ― strengthen your rhythm, timing and ability to find the right pattern for any song, or even transform simple strumming patterns into sweet improvs
  • Become a power–picker ― master rhythmic fingerpicking songs and solo fingerstyle pieces with exercises that quickly improve speed, flexibility, and fluidity
  • Master the fretboard ― learn to build major and minor scales across the neck of the ukulele, build chords in different positions up, and down the fretboard and craft slick solos in rock, blues and jazz styles

Audio download includes

Over an hour and a half of audio featuring the exercises and songs from the book ― so you can hear exactly how they should sound

  • Scales and scale sequences
