Great Ukulele Instruction Book....!

Once you get past the silly title (Ukulele for Dummies), you realize that Al Wood (who runs www.ukulelehunt.com) has actually put together a marvelous compendium of ukulele knowledge that takes you from novice to expert. I'm not always a fan of 'teach yourself an instrument' books, but this one of Al's is, really, a ukulele bible. A great reference, with an included audio dvd, and some very witty writing that makes it fun to read.

Go get it. Now.

You stole my review, practically word for word. Now what am I going to write at Amazon?

Truly, Al's book is a wonderful resource and I love the clever comments that give it personality. Much better than "the bassoon for dummies" book, let me tell you!

And Al give Craig and me a nice thank you in the Acknowledgements. Fine chap, Mr. Wood.

I would totally buy this just because its that website ukulele hunt where I learned how to play ukulele, so happy for Wood!

I'm a crap teacher, so I can really appreciate a book to point at when someone says they want to learn how to play the ukulele.
