4. Beginner's Lessons in Sequence (10+ brief videos)

Hey Folks, I just found where they (Hawaii Music Supply) are hiding all of the Beginner's Lessons on their website:

http://www.theukulelesite.com/free-resources/aarons-begginer-lessons

"Aaron's Beginner Lessons" (10+ un-numbered :-)

This will take care of you and me for the next 6 months of practice :-)

"Mahalo, Mahalo, a hui hou... You are definitely Ohana..."

&&&...

These guys are great teachers online, even for total beginners like me!

(I do not have a personal ukulele teacher, so I am learning on my own, until I meet other local players, etc.)

These 2 links are excellent Beginner's Lessons in learning the basic chords and their fingering progression.

The next link will get you started on the right track to learn and practice good technique for

beginning fingering of single notes on the strings, it will save you months of trial and error frustration.

This is clearly the most basic necessary beginning fingering lesson to practice.

5. This is an important category of videos: reviews of various types and sizes of ukuleles:

Be sure to scroll down to: "Kala Travel Tenors Compared-- Cedar and Spruce, Low G and High G".

Ukes are getting modern and electrified as well...


ps: I just sent them an email suggestion that they organize and number (#) their 200+ videos, so that we can find them!

and better utilize them more easily! See what a classroom teacher brings to the discussion... :-)

6. Their Blog with lots of insider and local Hawaii connections
