I'm hoping there are folks here on UU from the Cleveland Ohio area. I'm searching for a jazz uke teacher. The guy I currently give my hard earned money to is a jazz guitar player who decided to teach uke. He's a nice guy, but obviously figuring it out as we go along. I'm looking for somone who's primary insrument is uke.
Any help is appreciated.

This book will teach the chords but it is very Jazz based. The person who wrote is a Jazz guitarist who also plays uke. He goes into common progressions in Jazz and substitutions. You'll learn about 7th, majors, minors, augmented chords, b5, etc It's a very good book and I can not recommend it enough.

Do a search on Take Lessons. They have several instructors in Ohio, but you need to provide your zipcode to get an approximation of distance you're willing to drive.
