Here is a 10 step program for really learning the ukulele fingerboard.
No matter how many times you tried, it seems to be diffaculy to memorize the noews to the ukulele fingerboard.
Learning the notes of the ukulele fingerboard allows to get beyonf memorizing countless shapes and get to what music is. The notes and fiong3erings and patterns.
Through a series of exercises and drill to actually master the ukulele fngerboard.
- Sequential Fret Order - One fret at a time and same string order.
One frets at a time along each string. This method is a bit slow and prone to error and takes too long to get the information that you really need - Whqat is this note?
- Random Fret Order - One fret at a time and same string order.
- Key Frets Concept - Secondary and derived frets from string four to one and one to four. This si the method that is used for this series of lessons. And allows you to do any of the other exercises and drills here.
- Three Element Drill - fret, name, string?
This is the ultimate goal. Givin two of the three elements you can name the third.
- Geometric Shapes - Random shape and name the notes.
- Chord Shapes
- Isolation Drill
- Name Notes in Rhythm
- Rapid Note Jumping
This is one the elements of learning a fretted stringed instrument that really and I mean *really* has one of the biggest return for the time and effort it takes to really learn the neck.
NO matter what you are doing ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS know the notes you are playing.

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
