Learn the inner secrets of trick and novelty ukulele playing as well as the basics of advanced jazz-type chord substitution. Add color to your solos with this goldmine of little-known techniques. If you can already pick and strum the basic melody of a song, you can use the ideas in this manual to learn how to express your creativity. How-to instructions include: "wah-wah," chime and bongo effects, vamp runs, multiple tremolos, the rhumbas strum, pencil percussion, the "bend," "two-on-one-uke," speed picking, ukulele electronics, and more. A useful bonus is a 13-page section on basic and advanced chords featuring five to seven different ways to play the same chord up the fretboard.

Hints & Tips For Uke Players

User Review  - lwasserman20 - Overstock.com

This book is not very helpful to experienced ukulele players. Most experienced players are aware of the techniques outlined in this booklet. After going through the book one time I have put it away for good. Books by Herb Ohta Jr. are much more useful. Read full review
