Never one to toot my own horn (understatement), I thought I’d share what other ukulele players are staying about Play Ukulele By Ear Vol. I: Hearing The I-IV-V.




From ebay buyers:

“An honest to goodness real learning dvd…..a must have for ukers period!”

“The DVD is very helpful to me – I am learning a lot from it.”

“A very well done ukulele DVD, well recommended.”

“Excellent DVD. Very clear explanations. Funny and easy to follow!”




From Amazon.com buyers:

“Jim has a great conversational style when he teaches. He brings a wacky sense of humor, too, which of course works well when you’re dealing with a uke. But, he’s a great, serious player who brings a terrific sensibility to music. His message is to learn to listen to a song, it’s words, it’s change of mood and sound, and gradually, your own sense of what chords are needed emerges. You’ll really like Jim as an instructor, and as a player. And his beret is pretty cool, too!”

“I am VERY impressed with this DVD. It covers how to play the way you really want to when playing for fun, without written music, just by listening. It also covers basics lacking in many how to musical DVDs including strumming and tuning without always relying on electrical tuners, and music theory. It’s fun, funny and I can play a couple of songs after two days of steady practice.”

If you’re ready to move past the Vol. I lesson, well, Vol. 2 is for you. Play Ukulele By Ear Vol. 2 Chord Progressions & the Circle of 5ths is a comprehensive overview of most of the popular chord progressions, taught by ear, so you’ll be able to recognize them when they come around in songs. Vol. 2 also demystifies the Circle of 5ths. If you’ve ever wanted to use this powerful tool for understanding how music works, this is the lesson for you. Vol. 2 is currently available only as a digital download (see top of page sidebar). DVD coming soon.

As always, I appreciate any and all feedback concerning these lessons. Your input makes them better! Thanks!
