I Don't Have A UKE But......
on January 18, 2013
I don't have a ukulele, I've never played a ukulele, But.... I think that everyone will agree with the following points: First off, even though most of us play regular guitar, many of us are very interested in other instruments and their tunings. And, if you think about it many times in the hands of some of the most famous guitarists you will find these unique instruments. You say to yourself, what are these guys doing with these things.
Well, what they know is is that these instruments over and above a stand-alone role, add spice and all kinds of textures to their music. Have you ever strummed a particular new chord, and all of a sudden you instantly feel like you can strum a unique and new song just based on that one chord? Well, what I see is these people actually playing things that are unique to what you normally hear for them but yet the same time somehow weirdly fit. And, when you translate these to guitar it expands your knowledge.
What this is all about, and that I'm getting to, is that just perusing this book, has allowed me to see different things that I can apply to my guitar. What I would really like to tell you however is how good this book is even though I may not pick up this instrument. The author has been the same amount of concentration and attention to detail that you see in his other books. From my experience with his other books, I heartily recommend this one.
In closing, if the ukulele is your instrument of choice, please get this book. The price is very very modest, and will allow you to quickly become more proficient with this instrument. This author is a very hard-working and conscientious individual. His YouTube videos are legendary and you can see that he really really wants to bring as many people into playing string guitar instruments; and not only that, keep them playing which is probably his greatest attribute and contribution. And finally, purchasing this book does so much more than give the author simple profits; it helps him bring more good things to us and especially those wonderful YouTube lesson videos.
