This book will teach readers basic playing techniques for the ukulele. No prior musical experience is assumed. Learn how to hold the instrument, position the hands, strumming techniques, basic chords and beyond. The enclosed CD guides the reader through a series of exercises, which are organized in a progressive fashion (practicing one strum and slowly building to more complicated rhythmic patterns). The CD also includes a variety of charming songs that readers will be able to strum along with (starting with one/two chords and progressing on to more complex). Encouraging tips are included as well as trivia and sidebars about the ukulele. Music theory is included, but the emphasis is on getting up to speed and on with the fun of playing quickly. --Publisher.

This book was somewhat helpful as a complete beginner, but I still needed to look up some YouTube videos to figure out some of the fingering. I still have a long way to go and some of the stuff in the book is still over my head. There is an instructional CD that is also somewhat helpful.
