Any strum can be broken down to its Modular Phonetic rhythmic syllables. Modular Phonetic Rhythm, by Chuck Anderson is a system for learning rhythm. It teaches rhythm phonetically - just as language does.

Remember Strums ARE Rhythm!!!.

I've used the Modular Phonetic System system with hundreds of private ukulele and guitar students with 100% success

The Modular Phonetic Rhythm system is what can be used for learning your strums. Learning to create and to recognize these rhythmic syllables. You’ll soon hear the rhythms with your eyes and recognize them by ear.

The Modular Phonetic Rhythm system is organized into four levels depending on the how the beat is sub-divided.

Level I

Level I in the Modular Phonetic system is where the beat is not sub-divided. This level contains four rhythmic syllables.

Level II

In Level II the rhythmic syllables are two beats each and contain six rhythmic syllables.

Level II

In Level III there are eight rhythmic syllables that are one, two or four beats each.

Level IV

In Level IV the rhythmic syllables are one beat each and contains six rhythmic syllables.

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
