Product Details


This book and two CD combo is like having a friend show you how to play all your favorite songs on ukulele. You'll learn 25 classic songs by artists like Led Zeppelin, Green Day, Radiohead, Eagles, Cream, Pink Floyd, The Allman Brothers Band, Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole, and many others. Each song is transcribed in full music notation and TAB, and comes with a lesson that contains tips, techniques, and information about the artist. We've even provided a short refresher course on music theory, and a huge chord dictionary in the back of the book. The two CDs contain ukulele versions of every song and computer software that lets you mute the vocals or ukulele, slow tracks down, and loop sections for practice.
