This book is for anyone who wants to learn to play the ukulele. By working your way through the ten lessons, you will not only develop picking and strumming and fingering skills; you’ll also learn to read music and expand your understanding of it.
The lessons include songs, finger exercises, and accompaniments that let you sing along yourself or play along for other singers. The songs display a diversity of styles that will enhance your understanding and widen your appreciation of music. Later you will want to add other kinds of songs to extend your skills and expand your repertoire into areas that intrigue you.
For easy reference, appendices in the back of this book include a glossary, an ukulele chord chart, a fingering chart, and an alphabetical list of performance repertoire included in this book.
