This book will teach you the basic skills you need to play the uke. You’ll learn by playing études, exercises that are actually songs. Not your regular ‘Old Macdonald’ shizzle, but really cool stuff. We’ve enlisted the help of the extremely funky singer-songwriter, Shanin Blake. She’s given us exclusive permission to use some of her original songs, and she’s even written a few numbers specially for you, to get you started. You’ll be learning techniques that aren’t at all complicated, but once you’ve mastered them, they sound really cool and are also interesting enough for the more advanced player. You’ll learn to keep your playing simple so you can add your own touch to it by singing along. You will use this book as a guide; a reference containing all you need to learn on paper, and we have videos of all of Shanin’s songs, so you can play along with her.
There are two movements involved in playing the ukulele; upwards and downwards. Upwards is about expanding your skills, and downwards is about adjusting your expectations. And at the point where your skills and expectations meet, that’s where the fun starts.
