Comments regarding for QuickStart Scale Fingerings for Ukulele, C Tuning - Aeolian Scale.

CS, Man, I broke the code!!! I‘ve had you books for quite a while and never understood them. I live on the island of Lanai in Hawaii and a large number of guys can jam and they have tried the help, but could not read or understand the music. A new young guy moved here from Oahu and started teaching lessons. I started taking lessons from him and again, he did not understand what you books were all about. Being a teacher myself I knew there was a great deal of knowledge in your books and I could help him in setting up his lesson plans for his classes. I also told him that you basic books would be great for his students. After my 3rd lesson I broke out you Quickstart Book and it took us about 45 minutes to break the code. The power of reading!?!?!?!?! I will continue to tell lessons just because the local sound is so fresh but, this blue stuff w/ local music will be off the hook. Thank again. I will be buying more books and I will try to get h is contact information. ! His uncle was Bratha "IZ" - Kevin L. Humphrey

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic!
