About Barry Maz

Regular Joe, who started playing the ukulele a few years ago and got totally hooked!

Concerned at the lack of absolute beginner help for the ukulele, set up the Got A Ukulele blog which has gone from strength to strength, and became the launch pad for me releasing a set of ukulele owners handbooks aimed squarely at the beginner.

As a beginner, this book was excellent and really helped me in making me into a good Ukulele player. The author is funny, and knows what he's talking about. It teaches you the things other teachers don't think about and you may feel wrong asking! I highly recommend it!

I have been playing the ukuelele for a year now but have not really tried to learn anything about the instrument as I came from a guitar background. This book taught me so much in short a short space of time I couldn't believe it. This book i think teaches all levels of pkayers good informative information in a way that is non condescending and helpful! Highly recommended!

Very handy book this - I read it quite quickly, but will go back to it for reference. Highly recommended if you are starting out with ukulele, if you are thinking of it, if you play but dont understand some of the techy stuff, or even just for a good read.

5 stars.

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.
