Lesson seven covers reading in position II.

After spending time on open and first position, we’re ready to move into the second position. The second position is defined as the notes on frets 2, 3, 4 and 56 on all four strings. The first finger will play notes in fret 2. The second finger will play notes in fret 3. The third finger will play notes in fret 4 and the fourth finger will play notes in fret 5.

The second position is a natural position for the key of C major and G major as well as their two relative minor keys, A minor and E minor.

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
