    Default Blues Ukulele Book?

    I'm looking for books (or for that matter web-based resources) on learning how to play the blues on the ukulele. If you have recommendations, please also indicate the experience level that book/resource is suitable for. Many thanks!

    Glen Rose has some youtube videos showing his jazz and blues Uke systems. A friend of mine has the jazz one and its a pretty neat way of learning it. Just search for Glen Rose Blues Ukulele.

    Fred Sokolow has a Blues Ukulele book. It's written to cover a range of playing ability - each song comes with both a simple chord arrangement, and a more challenging melody arrangement.

    I might be a bit late to the party, but I have Fred Sokolow: Blues Ukulele, Kev's Quickstart Ukulele Blues Licks Tricks & More Uke and Hal Leonard Ukulele Method: Blues Ukulele.

    There is useful information in all of them, Fred's book is better for learning songs and the other two are better for learning a few basics.
