I’m thrilled to announce the release of Play Ukulele By Ear Vol. 3: Soloing, a DVD that I produced in collaboration with my former Caravan Gogh bandmate Brian Oberlin. Brian and I have created a systematic approach to learn the art of soloing on the ukulele. This groundbreaking fifty-four minute DVD (download) will give you all the tools you’ll need to progress from playing simple scale and arpeggio exercises to creating your own solos.
The Play Ukulele By Ear series has helped thousands of ukulele players worldwide “get off the paper” and experience the fun of playing music by ear. Now the same “by ear” approach will help you learn the art of soloing.
The hardcopy DVD will be available for order in early November. To purchase the download CLICK HERE.

14 Final Thoughts
I like the way you teach. I always learn something I didn’t know I needed and you reinforce stuff I’m trying to get into the ol’ brain.
Once again you have taken the difficult and broken it down to simpler steps. A little practice with this DVD and I hope to be able to actually “take it”, when someone says “take it”.
