The ukulele: a noble little instrument, an irritating little instrument. Both views are valid, but for millions of people around the world, the ukulele is fast becoming the instrument of desire. The beauty of the ukulele is that it's quick to learn, inexpensive to buy, and one of the most portable instruments you can find (plus it makes a surprisingly acceptable ping pong bat). Designed to get you playing the uke without the tiresome bother of having to study too much, this light-hearted book includes tips on how to choose the right ukulele for you; how to hold, tune and play the thing; tunes to learn; a 'plucking hell' of warnings for ukulele players; and an array of other uke-related fun.
A revolution in music is happening under our noses and its weapon of choice is a vertically challenged guitar: it's time to get plucky with the ukulele!
