    Default Uncle Rod's Ukulele Boot Camp expanded and revised

    Aloha, UU Ohana,

    just a note to let you know that I've rearranged Uncle Rod's Ukulele Boot Camp into a TRIO of helps:

    1) UBC-Self-Examination Tool for Ukulele Proficiency (SET-UP)
    2) UBC-Uncle Rod' Ukulele Boot Camp (rev 2013)
    3) UBC-FREE Songbook (2011)

    actually all 3 parts are FREE for you to use and pass along

    To those of you who choose to tune 'differently' (from G-C-E-A), please supply the appropriate chord diagrams to replace the GCEA diagrams on the Practice Sheets. That said, you may also use the Practice Sheets for any chorded instrument with the appropriate chord diagram substitutions

    links are in my signature below.

    keep uke'in', everybody!

    Mahalo,

    Excellent! I wondered about the C6 on the G page myself . . .

    I made myself a copy in with transpositions into thirteen of the fifteen keys. I figured Cb and C# just don't come up all that often . . .

    As always, thank you Uncle Rod. Any first-time readers, or people new to the uke, please click on Uncle Rod's Mediafire link and download. The Boot Camp is perfection and will help out a lot.

    Thank you, Uncle Rod! You're the cat's!

    It can't be repeated enough: if you are new to the 'ukulele, Uncle Rod is one of the best resources you will find. The Boot Camp is not the most comprehensive program, but that is exactly why it is so useful. It's not so much material that it's overwhelming, yet it is enough that you can learn the basics, and it also does not outlive its usefulness. A lot of us still use Uncle Rod's tools regularly as a warmup or refresher. I am not a great 'uke player, but I am able to play a lot of complex chords and change smoothly between them. I can thank Uncle Rod for that.
