About the Author

Barry is a well known player in the ukulele community, lead vocalist and uke in leading ukulele band 'The N'Ukes',  and founder of the website Got A Ukulele, now one of the most popular resources for new ukulele players.


For the past 25 years he dabbled with acoustic and electric guitar, but was switched on to the ukulele several years ago on account of a number of his musical heroes championing the uke (the likes of George Harrison and Loudon Wainwright III amongst others). 

Like most beginners, Barry started with a cheap and nasty uke which was a struggle to play, so he started to explore better quality instruments. The more he played, the more he enjoyed this humble little instrument and decided to start sharing his experiences on the internet. The response was massive with the site being hugely popular today. He doesn't so much write about 'how to play', but rather shares his love of the instrument and provides advice to new players on how to live with a ukulele.

He doesn't class himself as a great player, just a strummer but has an infectious love for the instrument and a desire to help other new players who are just starting out. Following the success of the blog he was persuaded to put down his best tips and advice for new players into a series of books. They hit the shelves at just the right time with great success (his first book going on to become the best selling music book on Kindle at one point in 2011)

The ukulele really is an instrument for everyone - its quick to pick up the basics (most beginners can easily be playing a simple song in 30 minutes) and it really gets people talking.

Keep strumming!

Before you buy, be sure to check out the combined edition because you'll want both. These books answer questions you don't yet know enough to ask; they are quick and easy to read. Very conversational. I have picked up the ukelele again after many many decades and these books are making me more brave and ready to get going on some serious fun with a precious, friendly instrument.

I started playing the ukulele and found this a helpful resource. (lies begin now) Between this, Uke for Dummies, and youtube I'm now an expert. Now I tour the world making millions of dollars entertaining people with my world class ukulele skills. You can too! Buy this book! It's how Jake got started.
