Welcome to the Guitarlele Blues Mastery book by Uke Like The Pros and written by Terry Carter. This book is the most comprehensive book written for Blues on the Guitarlele in the world. In the Guitarlele Blues Mastery book you are going to learn how to play all styles of Blues rhythm, fingerstyle, and picking on this wonderful six-string instrument called the guitarlele.
In this book you are going to explore all the techniques and tools that you need to become a Guitarlele Blues Master. You are going to learn Blues Shuffle, Walking Blues, Blues Rock, Fingerstyle Blues, Boogie Woogie Blues, Jump Blues, Country Blues, Slow Blues, Jazz Blues, Blues Scales, and Blues Soloing.
Before we jump into the contents of the Guitarlele Blues Mastery book, let’s break down the guitarlele. The guitarlele, also known as the guilele or guitalele, is a 6-string ukulele that is tuned (from low to high) A-D-G-C-E-A. Strings 1-4 (G-C-E-A) are the same as a ukulele, but the guitarlele adds the low D and A strings. Guitarleles typically come in two sizes, the tenor (17-inch scale length) and the baritone (20-inch scale length). Scale length is the measurement from the inside of the nut to the inside of the saddle. Some of the top guitarleles are made by KoAloha, Kanilea, Romero Creations, Kala, and Ohana.
Although you could play everything in this book on the guitar (E-A-D-G-B-E), the tuning would not match the audio backing tracks that are included with this book. Nor would the tuning match the complete video course of all these lessons that is sold separately at ukelikethepros.com/guitarleleblues
The Uke Like The Pros Guitarlele Blues Mastery book is a step-by-step introduction to the Blues, which means each lesson will build upon the next, so that you develop the proper techniques and confidence you need to become a Blues Master.
One of the key concepts in this book is understanding the difference between Swing and Straight Feel. This is extremely important to not only understand the differences, but to be able to execute flawlessly, the two styles. Blues Swing is the primary style you hear in the Blues Shuffle, Boogie Woogie, Jazz Blues, and Slow Blues. Straight Blues is a faster, more driving style that you’ll hear in Blues Rock (like Chuck Berry), Jump Blues, and Country Blues. Don’t worry if you don’t understand this concept right now; you will by the time you are done with the Guitarlele Blues Mastery book by Terry Carter.
Although the Guitarlele Blues Mastery book will focus on understanding the different styles of Blues through rhythm, it does explore other topics that I know you are interested in, such as Fingerstyle Blues, Blues Scales, and the Blues Solo.
The Guitarlele Blues Mastery book is the most comprehensive book on Guitarlele and is written by Terry Carter, the leader in the Guitarlele world, youtube.com/ukelikethepros.
Whether you are a beginner at the Blues, or a seasoned veteran, the Guitarlele Blues Mastery book is going to take you deep into the world of the Blues, and you will come out a better, more confident guitarlele player, who will be ready to tackle the world. Are you ready? Let’s dive in.
Terry has pulled from his incredible professional experience as a Los Angeles studio musician (Weezer, Josh Grobon, Los Angeles Philharmonic), composer (CBS, MTV, Puma), and educator (University of Southern California and San Diego State University) to teach you the skills he learned of how to create and play a great solo.
