The ukulele is an extraordinary instrument with a remarkable history. Apart from its well-practiced use as a strummed accompaniment instrument, it is capable of real beauty and the most delicate expression. It has as much depth as Renaissance and Baroque guitars and lutes, and is worthy of serious study by all those who have a heart for music.This set of 20 fingerstyle arrangements is written for the beginning student seeking something a little more challenging to play. These 20 progressive studies touch on all aspects of fingerstyle playing on the ukulele presenting different styles: blues, jazz, classical, and even minimalism and serialism. There are studies in arpeggios, scales, modes, ii-V-I chord sequences, strumming, syncopation, campanella fingerings, improvisation, hammer-ons, and pull-offs. Some of the studies concentrate on the left hand, some on the right hand, some on both. Possibly the most comprehensive set of studies currently available for the ukulele, mastery of which will equip one to explore any style of music desired. It is also a showcase for how well the ukulele can adapt to different styles of music.Companion audio available by clicking on the 'Listen' link above, or at www.melbay.com.
