I'm a beginner ukulele player who has been slowly progressing through some tutor books bought at christmas. This is a great read and as it says, it really does answer many questions that I had in my head.
I only wish I had bought the book before I bought my ukulele, as I see now that I could have bought better. Still, the tips on strings are great and I have ordered some new ones.
It's also quite funny too (a dry humour) but it is never patronising and understands that many beginners dont have a clue what they are doing with the uke.
For the price, I really would highly recommend to anyone thinking of buying a uke, or just bought one and feeling a little lost.
A great follow up - more tips from Mr Maz that will only serve to help new players really get to grips with the whole ukulele universe. What makes this book differ from the last though is that it is more about encouragement rather than technical stuff. There are some techy chapters in it, but I really liked the ones about trying to get the reader out their playing (in public!)
Enjoyed this read very much
What can I say? I've been following this author on his site Got A Ukulele since I started playing uke and it's been a constant source of both advice and inspiration, loved his uke handbooks too.
I wasn't sure about the chord book but downloaded and now have it via iBooks in my iPhone. What a great idea! Kind of a feel good thing, I have a chord chart wherever I am ( so long as I have my phone!)
Really clear pics, and for less than a cost of a UK sandwich, why on earth WOULDNT you buy it?
