Features
Essential Elements for Ukulele - Method Book 1 by : Marty Gross


Playing the ukulele is an enjoyable; easy; and inexpensive way to get involved in music. It provides a way to learn musical concepts and skills that can apply to any instrument you decide to study. Moreover; it will give you a great opportunity to share the joy of making music with other people. This book will help to provide you with the basic skills and musical background you need to get started. This carefully crafted method emphasizes chord strumming skills; teaching students HOW to practice; note reading exercises; “chord challenges” to learn how to figure out chord progressions; tab reading; and more. It also includes nearly 30 familiar songs that students can play while still learning; including: All My Loving • Home on the Range • Hound Dog • Jambalaya (On the Bayou) • La Bamba • The Lion Sleeps Tonight • The Rainbow Connection • Take Me Out to the Ballgame • and more! Practice; experiment; and have fun playing the ukulele!

Named “The Best Ukulele Method for Beginners” by Wirecutter: “...Essential Elements for Ukulele Book 1 emerged as our clear favorite. Surprisingly; it's one of the few books that start out by explaining chordal playing instead of single-note playing and playing chords is what almost all beginners really want to do on uke; since that gets them directly into playing songs. We like that Essential Elements for Ukulele includes some useful; unintimidating lessons on music theory; and that it offers chord and strum charts in the back...”
