Ukulele Player Magazine and other Ukulele Links

The next How to Play Ukulele ebook should be released next week. It’s a little different from my usual releases as I’m not the only person involved. It’s a kind of Live-Aid-for-Ukulele-Tabbers with all proceeds from the ebook going directly to Ukuleles for Peace. It contains tabs by Dominator, James Hill (yes, THE James Hill), Ken Middleton, Mark Kailana Nelson, Wilfried Welti and me. For once I can say it’s absolutely fantastic without feeling like I’m being boastful. I’ve been loving playing these tabs myself (and I got them free – which is the only reason I started the project in the first place). So make sure you don’t miss the launch next week (hopefully).

The first edition of Ukulele Player Magazine is up for download and includes interviews with Craig Robertson and Amber ‘Ukebucket’ Nash.

If the credit crunch is biting, try selling off your used MP3s (according to Idolator it isn’t a joke).

    Hello, I am working with some 5th generation ukelele makers, and I was wondering, how much it would cost to advertise on your website?

    Mark: Sorry, I don’t have advertising on the site.

Got something to say?
