“I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I’m enjoying your ukulele books.  I started with ukulele in August, and have pretty much been exclusively using you and your sister’s books, and I love them!  The way they are laid out, and the supplemental videos – it is all so helpful.

A few people got me some other ukulele books for Christmas, and I found them really lacking in details and instruction compared to your books.  After Christmas, I bought myself your Intermediate book, and it’s just perfect for incremental progress.  I love all the helpful tips and how you break down the chords and give alternate fingerings as well.  I always recommend them to people I meet who are thinking of taking up ukelele.  :-)”
