Uke for Xmas? Read This!

When I got my first ukulele, I was completely clueless. This was in those dark, long forgotten days before the internet had been discovered. I didn’t even realise that the strings weren’t supposed to go thickest to thinnest and restrung it.

So, to save you from the social disgrace I experienced, I’ve put together a free mini-ebook covering the basics that every first time uke owner needs to know. Here’s what it contains:

Five Things to Know
Five Chords to Learn
Five Songs to Play
Five Websites to Visit
Five Things to Get Free
Five Things to Buy
Five Videos to Watch
Five YouTube Channels to Subscribe to

You can download it free by clicking here:

So You Just Got Your First Ukulele (PDF)

And get playing by following the beginner ukulele lessons.

    My friend got a ukulele for Xmas and she really wants the tab/chords for Mister Blue Sky. Think you could set it up for us?

    People who give stuff away free on the internet are beatified in my church.

    Kresling: That’s certainly easier than curing leprosy.

    You know how the pope is–all about flashiness. I’m satisfied with miracles of human generosity.
