30 Available Books for "Ukulele"
The `Ukulele originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete, a small guitar-like instrument, which was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants, many from Madeira and the Azores. It gained great popularity elsewhere in the United States during the early 20th century and from there spread internationally.
The majority of the books on the site are for `ukulele, guitar, and general music. However, a lot of concepts in the fingering and music books can be applied to any fretted stringed instrument like mandolin, banjo and bass guitar. Naturally, general music lessons can be applied to any instruments. The books with play-along tracks and songs can be used with any instrument.
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
