UKULELE FOR BEGINNERS


UKULELE FOR BEGINNERS

WILL GROVE-WHITE    Book Number: 87863    Product format: Paperback

Hugely popular, easy to play, you will be strumming and singing along just like that cheekie chappie George Formby in no time. The tiny guitar-shaped small banjo is a noble if little instrument. Another point of view is that it is an irritating little instrument, but for millions of people around the world it is fast becoming the instrument of desire. The beauty is it's quick to learn, inexpensive to buy, and one of the most portable instruments around. Everywhere The Clash went, Joe Strummer (1952-2002) never forgot his ukulele. Marilyn Monroe played one in Some Like It Hot as Sugar Kane. David Bowie and Eddie Vedder are huge fans and more recently Billie Eilish who composed many of her hits on one. Learn about the triple stroke, muting and stopping the strings in the advanced section, even writing your own songs and performing tips, but best of all in big colourful photographs are the common chords, favourite old tunes like Midnight Special here with all the fingering notation and lyrics, and the styles of rock and pop or blues like Sweet Home Chicago or just a simple London Bridge is Falling Down. Tips on where to buy and extras, which size to choose, playing a one-chord song, we are introduced slowly through the basics and beyond. Lovely big colourful artwork and design, full page photos of musicians and instruments, colour photos and diagrams. 176 page softback, 7¼" x 9".
