Play Ukulele By Ear Vol. 1 Review

Posted on: April 5th, 2012 by dville

The first review of the Play Ukulele By Ear DVD was written by Ukulele Tonya from Paradise, California for her blog, aptly named, Ukulele Tonya. Although I’m not the type of guy that tells you the ending to the most fabulous movie of all time…before you’ve seen it…I will reveal the ending of Tonya’s review.

“…that’s the major impact of this DVD: You truly learn how to listen to what you’re playing. Without a song sheet in front of me, I can now “hear” where the chord changes are in dozens of two- and three-chord songs. While Doctor Uke has a list of those songs and explains how to do it in words, Jim teaches in the DVD how to listen and hear those sounds through humming and assigning a feel and sound to each type of chord.
If you’re the type of player who relies on oodles of song sheets but would like to be able to “hear” the songs without all the chords written down, this is definitely the DVD for you. Not only is it easy to digest (Jim’s a funny guy), but it’s chock-full of methods to get you out of your “head” learning and into your ears.”
Thanks Tonya!
