The competition page is Here, but I can remind you of the rules here. In fact, to enter, all you have to do is email me at and answer this ukulele related question.

What year was Jake Shimabukuro born?

Mark your entries "book competition" in the subject line!

  1. I would recommend anyone who has not entered to do so NOW!.
    I have a short review of it on Amazon's site, Please forgive this hijack, but here is a copy;

    I am so glad I bought this book. It is written in plain English and as such is pretty much jargon free with full explanations which any beginner can understand. With only a couple of weeks "playing" under my belt I had already got the ukulele "bug" but I was unhappy with the cheap instrument I had bought, Armed with the information I gained, I made a few minor tweaks to the "uke" and my positioning, I now have a playable instrument which will suffice until I am ready to upgrade. The previously daunting prospect of choosing the right instrument to upgrade to, from the thousands available will now be a pleasurable and considerably more informed choice, Also in the last two days my playing has improved dramatically and this has strengthened my resolve to master the ukulele. I don't think there is any publication to beat it. In short it is exceptional.

  2. Mike - tha k you for the kind words!
