Ukulele Playing – Grade 2 from the Registry Of Guitar Tutors is the fourth volume in a series that forms an expertly structured method for studying Ukulele.

Written in easy-to-read tab, as well as traditional notation, this user-friendly book also comes with a free CD so you can ‘listen and learn’.

Ukulele Playing – Grade 2 covers all the material needed for the RGT Grade 2 exam in Ukulele playing, enabling you to study for an internationally-recognised qualification. However, even if you do not intend to take an exam, this book will help you develop all aspects of your playing in a structured way.

This volume includes chords, strumming patterns, attractive well-known melodies and a fingerstyle study, plus chapters on accompaniment playing and musicianship – including aural exercises to develop your musical abilities – making it ideal for novice players, whether children or adults, in the early stages of learning Ukulele. The book is cleverly designed so that it can be used by both plectrum and fingerstyle Ukulele players.

          A very good series of tutorials, clear and fairly easy to follow.

          They take you from the very beginning to a high level of competence, and you can even take a grade examination at each stage if you want to.

          I'm taking lessons with a Ukulele teacher and I wanted to follow this particular course.

          He hadn't seen it before and now thinks that it's the best written course for the Uke that he has come across, and that's something, considering he's been teaching for over 25 years !!!
          The only slight downside is the lack of words when there is a well known song to learn. It would be rather nice to have them there, then it would be easier to see exactly on which words the chords change. But this is only a very minor point/issue.

          The only other small thing, which doesn't really make much sense, is that I think it would be much simpler just to have numbered the books one to six.

          Just why the first two are preliminary & intermediate, followed by numbers one to four, is beyond both me & my tutor?
