Though the Ukulele came from Portugal, it became popular and got its name in Hawaii. In this 90-minute lesson, Fred Sokolow presents the most well-known Hawaiian hapa-haoli standards, some that go back to the 1920s, others as recent as the 1960s. Mostly written by Tin Pan Alley composers who threw in a few Hawaiian words and phrases, these songs are still sung today wherever Ukes are strummed.
Fred teaches beautiful chord-melody solos to each one, and shows you how to strum a simple accompaniment. Fred makes it easy to learn, with split-screen, slowed down versions of the songs and helpful hints about the licks and picking styles. All the songs are written out in tab and music notation in the PDF file that comes with the lesson.
Songs include: Blue Hawaii, Little Brown Gal, Ukulele Lady, On the Beach at Waikiki, Pearly Shells, Tiny Bubbles and I Wonder Where My Little Hula Girl Has Gone.
