Aloha!
For you seattle ukers - Jake will be in concert on
Wed Oct 24 - http://jakeshimabukuro.com/shows/detail/benaroya_hall_taper_auditorium/

For the folks learning fingerpicking & chord melody playing, I just got in another nice endorsement from Hawaiian 'Ukulele instructor Kimo Hussey for my uke books www.pekelosbooks.com
Kimo's endorsement adds to the endorsements by Chris Kamaka, Lyle Ritz, Dr. Amy Stillman, Bryan Tolentino & more!
Learn a chord melody style as you listen and play along with the CDs
& Mahalo for all the nice book reviews from the UU community!
For the Hawaii folks - these are available/on display in the Hawaii Public Library system & most recently at Harry's Music Store on Waialae Ave. Enjoy!

HA! I was just going to ask if there were music stores carrying these books. I guess I'll visit Smiley today. Thanks Renato!
