Ukulele Crazy!

A quirky, fun and practical guide to learning all that you need to learn about the ukulele-an instrument currently enjoying a resurgance in popularity. UKULELE CRAZY is a celebration of one of music's most beloved instruments. With a rich history spanning back to Portugal (and not Hawaii, as everyone thinks) the ukulele is currently going through an incredibly popular 21st century revival. As a member of the guitar family, the ukulele has charmed a wide range of popular musicians, as well as amateur players, from all over the world, with its distinct melodic and upbeat sound. Contained within the book are all the basics you need to know to get you started on your way. From a fascinating overview of the instrument's history, its key makers, manufacturers and world famous players, through to the more practical, and vital, elements such as what ukulele to buy, what chords to learn, how to strum along to songs and what festivals to attend if you fancy jamming along with others. So, don't delay-pick up a ukulele today and play!
