Most players struggle with learning the names of the notes of the ukulele fingerboard. There doesn't seem to a pattern and notes repeat. There is an easy way and it's easier that you think!
Most players know the names of the open strings for their favorite tuning.
In C Tuning the open strings, from ceiling to floor - your *nose to toes* are named G C E A, no sharps or flats.
If you know the open strings (G C E A) you know fret (1) by sharping the open strings: G# C# E# A#. You also know fret (12), which are the same G C E A. By flatting each note you get fret (11) Gb Cb Eb Ab.
A sharp raises a note one semitone, one half step or one fret. A flat lowers a note one half step or one fret. A double sharp raises a note one whole step or two frets. A double flat lowers a note one whole step or two frets.

The distance between any two notes can be defined by steps - half steps, whole steps, semi-tones, whole tones. From this series of steps you can get the names of the notes of ANY of the fifteen major scales.
There is nothing that returns more value when learning a fretted musical instrument like the ukulele than really, and I mean really knowing the names of the notes of the fingerboard. This is not the same as learning to read music – but simply knowing the name of any note on the fingerboard.

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
