The ukulele has never been more popular, and Fred Sokolow's relaxed, user-friendly teaching style makes it easy to learn. Volume One of this three-part series starts right at the beginning, showing you how to tune and hold the uke.
Fred teaches you how to play songs of many genres, including Jambalaya, Stand By Me, Ghost Riders In the Sky, Every Day, Folsom Prison Blues, House of the Rising Sun, Aloha Oe and more. In the process of learning these classic tunes, you'll acquire several strumming patterns and over a dozen easy chords, enabling you to play in five keys. It's a great way to get started on the uke!
Fred slows all the tunes down and breaks them down so they're easy to learn. You'll also enjoy his “uke lore,” stories about the the songs and the players. All the songs are written out in tab and music, with chord grids as well.
Whether you're a novice or a uke player wanting more repertoire and technique, there's plenty here for you. It's a great way to get started on this wonderful instrument, and a great way to expand your uke horizons!
