Be the Best “Ukulele Entertainer” You Can Be! Could your playing, singing or onstage banter use a little fine-tuning? All string instrument performers will benefit from this practical, informative book. Going far beyond other ukulele publications, this helpful guide shows the aspiring ukulele star of any age how to: • Put strings on a ukulele, correctly • Play three styles of triplet strum • Know where to look when you sing • Tackle nerves and stage fright • Start and run a ukulele club • Remember lyrics and sing on pitch • Create a killer set list, and much, much more Learn from a seasoned pro how to relax and improvise, introduce more dynamics into your playing, even—just for fun—how to make ukulele wine! You’ll get some lessons in musical history and be royally entertained by the “King of the Ukulele” himself. Welcome to The Ukulele Entertainer, a book to help ukulele players with their playing and performance skills. This book shows all levels of ukulele player how to play better and includes tips on improving your chances of success when you get out in front of an audience. Much of the information is also useful for other musicians and entertainers who are not ukulele players. The pieces have been placed in sections. Since this is a book primarily for ukulele players, the most obvious category would be advice on how to play the ukulele. But, surprisingly perhaps, Ralph doesn't dwell on the playing of the instrument as much as you might expect. Achieving excellence as an entertainer or musical performer requires knowledge and sets of skills far beyond musical techniques. How often has the ukulele player come up against stage fright or wondered where in the audience to look while singing? Therefore, numerous pages are dedicated to the teaching of performance ability. Most ukulele players are singers too. Singing looks so easy when done well. But only those who have persistently devoted themselves to the improvement of vocal technique understand how the playing of a stringed instrument is less than half the battle. Becoming a better singer is a big part of the ukulele player’s education, so you’ll find chapters to help with singing on pitch and the delivery of lyrics. Ralph Shaw's writing comes across in the same terms as his performances. Elements of humour, storytelling and whimsy woven throughout. These flashes of pattern and colour will help the reader to absorb and remember the lessons. You’ll also find the occasional chapter that won’t help you improve either your playing or performance abilities. However, you will learn how to make an undrinkable wine from an old ukulele, partake in the joys of making music through the eyes and ears of a fifteen-year-old girl, and discover “Sithee,” the Yorkshire equivalent of the Hawaiian word “Aloha.” You may choose to think of these pieces as moments of inspirational literature. If you don’t, and instead you view them as items of pointless frivolity, then one should ask, If we can’t be allowed some time and space for reckless self-abandon, then why are we playing the ukulele in the first place?

Forget the 10,000 hour rule— what if it’s possible to learn the basics of any new skill in 20 hours or less? Take a moment to consider how many things you want to learn to do. What’s on your list? What’s holding you back from getting started? Are you worried about the time and effort it takes to acquire new skills—time you don’t have and effort you can’t spare? Research suggests it takes 10,000 hours to develop a new skill. In this nonstop world when will you ever find that much time and energy? To make matters worse, the early hours of prac­ticing something new are always the most frustrating. That’s why it’s difficult to learn how to speak a new language, play an instrument, hit a golf ball, or shoot great photos. It’s so much easier to watch TV or surf the web . . . In The First 20 Hours, Josh Kaufman offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition— how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible. His method shows you how to deconstruct com­plex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers. By complet­ing just 20 hours of focused, deliberate practice you’ll go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing noticeably well. Kaufman personally field-tested the meth­ods in this book. You’ll have a front row seat as he develops a personal yoga practice, writes his own web-based computer programs, teaches himself to touch type on a nonstandard key­board, explores the oldest and most complex board game in history, picks up the ukulele, and learns how to windsurf. Here are a few of the sim­ple techniques he teaches: Define your target performance level: Fig­ure out what your desired level of skill looks like, what you’re trying to achieve, and what you’ll be able to do when you’re done. The more specific, the better. Deconstruct the skill: Most of the things we think of as skills are actually bundles of smaller subskills. If you break down the subcompo­nents, it’s easier to figure out which ones are most important and practice those first. Eliminate barriers to practice: Removing common distractions and unnecessary effort makes it much easier to sit down and focus on deliberate practice. Create fast feedback loops: Getting accu­rate, real-time information about how well you’re performing during practice makes it much easier to improve. Whether you want to paint a portrait, launch a start-up, fly an airplane, or juggle flaming chain­saws, The First 20 Hours will help you pick up the basics of any skill in record time . . . and have more fun along the way.

With over 1,000 chord diagrams and 37 full-sized fingerboard charts, Mastering Ukulele Chord Inversions is the most comprehensive and useful ukulele chordbook ever published. It includes all the chords you will need for fingerstyle and chord melody arrangements, complex styles like jazz and bossa nova, or simply for tickling your fingers and exercising your brain. This book can help you find any chord, but will also greatly enhance your understanding of how chords work, enabling you to become a better musician.Included are three full-sized fingerboard diagrams showing all of the practical chord intervals for major, dominant and minor chords in every key. These will help you visualize how intervals relate to each other. They will also help you play scales and arpeggios and find alternate fingerings for common chords. Rather than list all the chords of a given type in 12 keys on one page, chords are grouped together by how they are used in a particular key. If you are looking for a G7 chord, you'll find it alongside other dominant chords like G9, G7b9 and G7#5.Chords which serve similar musical roles are grouped together. Likewise, all thevarious flavors of major chords (6, 6/9, M7, add 2) and minor chords appeartogether in one convenient place. The chord diagrams have the familiar fretboard grid, with the lowest fret clearly marked. In addition, each note in the chord is labeled to aid you in your study.Each chord appears in several forms that move up the neck. The ukulele's re- entrant tuning requires either doubling or leaving out certain chord notes to accommodate the instrument's four strings. This means chord shapes are not inversions, strictly speaking, but the word is as good as any. Practicing inversions as they move up and down the neck is essential to mastering your ukulele. Alternate fingerings for chords at the lowest position of the neck have also been added
