The How to Play Ukulele Strums ebook has been a big hit with people. It’s already sold over 250 copies. And if you want to get your hands on it, don’t hang about because the price goes up from $14 to $17 at the end of tomorrow (Wednesday 22nd July).
Here’s what people have been saying about it:
Thorough and thoroughly fantastic book! Thanks as always.
I’m sure my flatmates will be very grateful for it as well. With time, my practicing will (hopefully) sound like actual music rather than the sort of abstract noise that it was before and my flatties can stop voluntarily banning themselves from home until it’s clear that I’ve moved on to another task for the day.
In all seriousness: the book is wonderful, Thorough, easy to understand, and funny (as always). I am completely indebted to you for saving me from the depths of ukulele despair.
I shall be recommending the ebook to our Monday Ukearist ukers as I know many of them are interested in improving their strumming. I’ll also be unashamedly stealing your mnemonic way of teaching!
Al’s topped himself this time which I wouldn’t have thought possible after the blues book.
This is a great read for beginners, but there are some strumming patterns at the end that are brilliant and will take some work to get the hang of.
When I started playing four years ago, I had no idea there would be such a great wealth of information available. Al’s books, in my opinion, are better than anything I’ve found elsewhere, as far as written instruction goes. And, he is rather hilarious when he wants to be.
I’ve already read this ebook more than 6 times and found something new with each read. A very important aspect for me was that the book covered basic things essential for strumming that are left out in other ukulele methods, such as rhythm and time signatures.
The examples and the videos are really helpful and you can even test out your newly acquired sense of rhythm through the exercises.
If there one book to buy on ukulele strumming, then it is definitely this one.
