A quirky, fun, and practical guide to learning all that you need
to learn about one of music's most beloved instruments, from its
history to songs to learn
With a rich history spanning back to Portugal (and not Hawaii,
as everyone thinks) the ukulele is currently going through an
incredibly popular 21st century revival. As a member of the guitar
family, the ukulele has charmed a wide range of popular musicians,
as well as amateur players, from all over the world, with its
distinct melodic and upbeat sound. Contained here are all the
basics you need to know to get you started on your way. It provides
a fascinating overview of the instrument's history, its key makers,
manufacturers, and world famous players as well as covering the
more practical, and vital, elements such as what ukulele to buy,
what chords to learn, how to strum along to songs, and what
festivals to attend if you if you want to jam along with others.
Covering legends form Ernest Kaai to Tiny Tim to Stephin Merritt
and songs from "Blue Moon" and "I'm a Believer" to "Lola" and
"Creep," this book is for fans of all types of music.
