The Ukulele: a noble little instrument, an irritating little instrument. Both views are valid, but for millions of people around the world, the ukulele is becoming the instrument of desire: a revolution in music is happening under our noses and its weapon of choice is a vertically challenged guitar. The beauty of the ukulele is that it's quick to learn, inexpensive to buy, and one of the most portable instruments you can find (plus it makes a surprisingly acceptable ping pong bat). Designed to get you playing the uke without the tiresome bother of having to study too much, this light-hearted book includes tips on how to choose the right ukulele for you; how to hold, tune and play the thing; tunes to learn; and an array of other uke-related fun.
