    Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico
    Difficulty Level:
  • November 29, 2011 Clear and concise

    I was searching for an ukulele method for my children ukulele workshop. This book is focused in chords and strum patterns instead of follow the path other books follow: learning all the notes in the first four frets. I got some ideas about the presentation the chords and strum pattern...

    for kids. There is a CD included with the examples and the quality of the paper is high. The author is from England so the references for listening music and players are for England sources. Nice book and presentation if you want to begin with chords and strum patterns instead learning to read notes in your ukulele.
