An Essential for your Ukulele Library!!!,
This review is from: Ukulele: The World's Friendliest Instrument (Hardcover)
Daniel Dixon has written an essential book for every ukulele strummer's library -- get one for yourself, and another for that next strummer's birthday!
As curator of one of the recent exhibitons on the uke (see Evolution of the Ukulele at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, the remnants of which are on the web), I can tell you this is a wonderful read. A great companion to Jim Beloff's book The ukulele : A visual history. The pages picked by Amazon make it look like another "how to" book -- not so! This one is history, and contemporary makers and players and clubs -- all about yet another revival of interest in our four stringed friend. Strum On!!!
