A superb collection of 53 Hawaiian favorites arranged for uke solo. It includes instruction on chords, "vamping," reading tablature and notation, note location on the fingerboard, scales and scale exercises, and rhythm, plus special uke techniques. Basic chords are summarized and "Rhythmic Strumming, Hawaiian Style" is taught. A section on advanced chords is also included. Although this book is written for the standard ukulele in C tuning, the authors also address how the baritone uke, ukulele-banjo, and tiple can be used with this book. Written in notation and tablature.

    If you are a singer, you will be disappointed since there are no words in this book. I wish they had mentioned in the book description that it was melody only. I wouldn't have purchased it.

    Dozens of traditional Hawaiian tunes in standard notation and TAB, with a variety of levels, so any skill level may find something to work on. Scales in all keys and some exercises are offered as well. This book will get you moving down the fretboard too! Brief performance suggestions help...

    as well.

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 06, 2006 Jump right into Uke with this book

    As an intermediate level fingerstyle/classical guitar player, I was looking for a book that would give me some basic Uke chords and plenty of tablature to start out with. This book has the basics and some pretty advanced stuff, too. More than enough material to keep a person busy...

    and interested for quite awhile. Only drawback - I wish it came with a CD as many of the songs are unfamiliar. If your ability to read music (especially in respects to timing) is limited, this may not be the best book for you. As a somewhat experienced guitarist, it is takng me 5 or tries to get some of the songs to sound right from just reading the music.
