Author: Fred Sokolow
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
The Ukulele has never been more popular, and Fred Sokolow's relaxed, user-friendly teaching style makes it easy to learn. In this lesson, Fred takes you to the next level beyond simple strumming.

You'll learn more first position chords as well as moveable (up-the-neck) chords. He shows you some fingerpicking accompaniment patterns, a few major scales, and how to play a 12-bar blues in any key. You'll also learn how to pick out melodies and play some beautiful chord/melody solos. Tunes include Tumbling Tumbleweeds, Tennessee Waltz, Route 66, Not Fade Away, A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody, See See Rider and more.

Fred slows all the tunes down and breaks them down so they're easy to learn. You'll also enjoy his “uke lore,” stories about the the songs and the players. All the songs are written out in tab and music, with chord grids as well. Whether you're a novice or a uke player wanting more repertoire and technique, there's plenty here for you. It's a great way to expand your horizons on this wonderful instrument.

          Well made and presented, good quality DVD.
          Actual instruction isn't very good or easy to follow. The whole of the video is like a filmed singalong, which you have to try and follow. Unless you're pretty good, you'll probably, like me find it fairly hard going.
