Learning the Ukulele Fingerboard

If there's one this when learning the ukulele that gives you one of the biggest return for your investment in time to learn - It's learning the names of the note of the ukulele fingerboard. This isn't learning to read music, it's as simply expanding on and learning more than open strings that you might already know. Every frets has names with two other frets using only the natural letters of music (A B C D E F G). Fret (5) in C tuning, low or high G is: C F A D. Fret (7) is D G B E. It's really that simple and one of the things you can do without actually having to hold an actual ukulele.

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
