Synopsis: While the ‘ukulele is enjoying a well-deserved renaissance on the mainland, in the land of it's birth, it has never gone out of style. Hawaiian's took to the "jumping flea" right from the start, creating music of stunning beauty and versatility. Now intermediate players can learn to play lovely finger style solo arrangements of classic Hawaiian songs, folk songs, standards–even a few pieces from the classical guitar repertoire. The book offers 27 arrangements from around the world written in standard notation and tablature playable on any ‘ukulele. Songs are grouped according to level of difficulty, starting with simple arrangements well within the grasp of dedicated beginners and intermediate players and leading through more challenging songs featuring unusual chord voicings, inversions up the neck, tricky fingerings and "all the fun stuff" the author could muster. To aid the student, the companion CD includes all of the songs taught. Includes chord charts, inversion studies, introductory material on finger-picking and making the transition from strumming to melodic playing.

About the Author: Multi-instrumentalist Mark Nelson has been active in the folk, Celtic and world music scene since the early 1970's. Considered one of the nation's premiere mountain dulcimer players-he won the National Championships in 1979-he is equally adept at guitar, 'ukulele, bass and various other instruments. His passion for Hawaiian slack key guitar led him to seek out and study with the masters of the vanishing art form. In 1997, Mark and revered Hawaiian musician Keola Beamer co-authored "learn to Play Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar," the first comprehensive tutorial for this gentle art form. After a lengthy touring career, Mark now hosts The Aloha Music Camp, a weeklong immersion into the music and culture of Hawaii with Hawaii's beloved Beamer family. (Aunty Nona Beamer recently honored him with the Hawaiian name "Kailana".) Acoustic Guitar Magazine dubbed his most recent CD, "The Water is Wide", a lovely blend of Celtic dulcimer and Hawaiian slack key guitar, "achingly beautiful." Mark's new Mel Bay book, "Learn to Play Fingerstyle Solos for 'Ukulele" will be released in early 2006. Mark lives in Southern Oregon's beautiful Applegate Valley, where he maintains a small recording studio and writes about music and music technology for a number of publications.
