Playing and exploring blues on a ukulele.
Yes, you can play the blues on a ukulele. The Blues are at the heart of all American music. Be Rock, Jazz, Country, Folk or Pop, there's a bit of the blues in it all.
Learning to play the blues is a great bridge to more complex music.
The Blues can be a feeling, a chord progression or a scale. This Blues section of the site will cover it ALL.
Here is what Peter Rhee said about my (Curt Sheller) books.
"Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!" - Peter Rhee
From time-to-time I'll feature a ukulele musician note that you should checkout.
“Manitoba Hal Brolund is a bluesman of the traditional variety...Come the Ruination captures Hal's spirit as he fingerpicks his way through 10 acoustic blues tracks here. Highlights include the jaunty Keep on Singing and Whiskey Blues, which features Brolund serving up some searing slide work.” - Uptown
( from artist's site ) - Manitoba Hal is a unique performer, accomplished guitarist, songwriter and ukulele player. Using a combination of looping technology and other effects he creates a one-man-band performance that is truly one-of-a-kind. His takes on traditional blues songs are fresh and inventive and audiences everywhere are entertained by his stage banter and witty observations.
