Finally learn the names of the notes of the fingerboard. Learning the notes of your own instrument allows you the flexibility of not having to remember so many shapes. There are way too many chord, scale and notes patterns to remember all the shapes. It all comes down the the notes.

Beyond knowing the names of the open strings most players find it hard to learn the whole fingerboard. You need to know the names of the notes like it’s second nature - just being able to figure them out is too slow.

If your goal is to finally learn the names of the notes on the fingerboard. Then the ”Learning the Fingerboard” series of books is your answer. Each book in the series has a step by step approach to finally mastering the fingerboard.

This is the same tuning that is used in the Kala UBass and instruments based on the original Road Toad bass created by Owen Holt and licensed by Kala.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
