Past, Present & Practice is a colorful guide to the basics of ukulele for beginners and more advanced players. It's delightful journey to the instrument's origins and current practice, spiced with anecdotes – and sincere passion for ukulele.
In Global Ukulele, the authors Arto Julkunen, Markus Rantanen and Liam Capper-Starr, all internationally renowned ukulele experts, tell the story of the ukulele from Madeira to Hawaii and onwards via the United States to the truly global phenomenon it has become.
Global Ukulele will also reveal a few surprise stories from the ukulele's colourful history, touching closely on not only the world of music, but also that of the movies. The book includes an extensive training section with a collection of training videos, which will help ukulele enthusiasts to become familiar with new playing techniques and different musical styles.
