My Free Ukulele Lesson Book is Finished!

Your First Ukulele Lesson and Then Some, by Brett McQueenI am so excited to write this post. Over the past month, I’ve been working on writing a ukulele lesson book for you all, and I’m finally done! It’s ready for you to download and check out right now.

So, you’re probably wondering what’s in it. I’m glad you asked!

The cool thing is you don’t have to wait for me to tell you. I’m giving it away for FREE and you can download it right now. Sweet!

As a whole, I wanted to write a ukulele lesson book that was a complete crash course for a beginner into the world of ukulele. Meaning, anyone just beginning ukulele can use this book to start learning today.

In 28 pages, I cover everything from how to hold your ukulele the right way, helpful tips on tuning your ukulele by ear, the most important chords to know, versatile strumming patterns, how to play your favorite songs, and obviously much more. There are a lot of pretty pictures and graphics too.

However, this isn’t just intended for a complete beginner. Even if you’ve already started, you can pick up some new tricks. In the first part of the book, I present some very foundational aspects from which to build on, and in the latter parts of the lesson, I show you some ways you can build on these foundations and unlock even more possibilities in your progress as a ukulele player.

All to say, you have nothing to lose by downloading it for free. I really hope it’s a helpful resource for you, and if you do find it helpful, please consider passing the word on about it to others (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, etc.).

I’d love to hear your feedback and what you think! If you have any questions or any troubles downloading the book, just let me know.
