Hints & Tips for Advanced Ukulele Players (Hawaiian Style) composed by Hideo M. Kimura. For Ukulele (Soprano). Saddle-stitched, Technic. Hawaiian. Advanced. Book. 68 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.98235).

ISBN 9780786647040. Hawaiian. 8.5 x 11 inches.

Learn the inner secrets of trick and novelty ukulele playing as well as the basics of advanced jazz-type chord substitution. Add color to your solos with this goldmine of little-known techniques. If you can already pick and strum the basic melody of a song, you can use the ideas in this manual to learn how to express your creativity. How-to instructions include: "wah-wah," chime and bongo effects, vamp runs, multiple tremolos, the rhumbas strum, pencil percussion, the "bend," "two-on-one-uke," speed picking, ukulele electronics, and more. A useful bonus is a 13-page section on basic and advanced chords featuring five to seven different ways to play the same chord up the fretboard.
