To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Like it's brothers, this book was a first step in the process of learning to play Ukulele. The songs are really fun, and this book gives the change to practice new accords. What I don't like is that it sends us to a web sight, where you are invited to "Buy" the book!!!! The sight is not user friendly at all. So if you are looking for clear instructions you have to look on YouTube. The 2 ladies are having a ball, but not us. We do not see close-ups of the fingers, which is the crucial part in playing an instrument. And like I said, the publicity says that if you buy the book, you can take the classes on the internet...not really happening...well. But for the Christmas songs it's worth the buy.
This is a great little ebook. It is suitable for the raw beginner who started playing a week ago, but they will probably pull it out next Christmas too. The songs are arranged in order of difficulty with the authors teaching you a new chord or two as you progress. The song selection is very good (unlike the authors' first "6 Days" book). The videos (confusing to sign up for but free with purchase) are charmingly amateurish in a way that makes me think "I can do it too". It never occurred to me that finger-picking could be a beginner technique and I really appreciate the authors' including instructions for it.
