Aimed at children, "Ukulele for Beginners" is a perfect introduction. From choosing which kind of ukulele to learn to how to hold the instrument, from learning the names of the different strings to playing first chords, from strumming patterns to finger-picking, from simple first songs such as My Darling Clementine to more complex ones like Somewhere Over The Rainbow, the book guides the new learner through all the necessary steps. With clear diagrams, instructions and notation, a large variety of musical styles is covered. Special features focus on famous ukulele players, such as Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney and Adele.
