Customer Review

on 6 February 2013
As a newcomer to stringed instruments I thought I should get the facts about playing them, having spent a lot of time playing wind instruments. This is the first 'For Dummies' book I've ever tried and I found it to be excellent in all respects except one. The included disc doesn't do what it claims, in the book it says that the disc demonstrates the music shown, which initially is Chords but the tunes are played as single notes which doesn't demonstrate the expected sound. Being new to the uke I may have misunderstood the intent of the writer but it has been a disappointment. Perhaps when I progress it will become clearer what the intention is. Otherwise a very informative book.
