Welcome to the Ukulele Blues Mastery book by Uke Like The Pros. The Ukulele Blues Mastery book by Terry Carter is the most comprehensive book written for Blues on the ukulele in the universe. Whether you are a beginner at the Blues, or a seasoned veteran, the Ukulele Blues Mastery book is going to take you deep into the world of the Blues, and you will come out a better, more confident ukulele player. The Ukulele Blues Mastery book is going to show you how to play Blues Rhythm, Blues Fingerstyle, Blues Scales, and Blues Soloing for this wonderful four string instrument called the ukulele.
In this book you are going to explore all the techniques and tools that you need to become a Ukulele Blues Master. You are going to learn Blues Shuffle, Blues Rock, Jump Blues, Fingerstyle Blues, Boogie Woogie Blues, Walking Blues, Country Blues, Slow Blues, Jazz Blues, Blues Scales, and Blues Soloing.
You can the free backing tracks for every lesson in the Ukulele Blues Mastery book on the Uke Like The Pros website. A complete video course of every lesson (sold separately) is available on the Uke Like The Pros website.
Before we jump into the contents of the Ukulele Blues Mastery book, let’s break down the type of ukulele you can use for this book. Any size ukulele, soprano, concert, or tenor tuned G-C-E-A will work for this course. Although the Blues sounds best on a ukulele with a Low G string (wound or unwound low G), a ukulele with a High G will work for all these lessons. Although a High G ukulele works, Uke Like The Pros highly suggests either putting on a Low G on your current ukulele or getting another ukulele that has Low G.
The Uke Like The Pros Ukulele 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 Uke 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 between Swing and Straight, but to be able to flawlessly execute the two styles. Blues Swing is the primary style you hear in the Blues Shuffle, Boogie Woogie, Jazz Blues, Walking Blues, and Slow Blues. Straight Blues is a faster, more driving style that you’ll hear in Blues Rock (ala Chuck Berry and Little Richard), Jump Blues, Fingerstyle 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 Ukulele Blues Mastery book by Terry Carter.
Although the Ukulele Blues Mastery book will focus on understanding the different styles of Blues rhythms and styles, it does explore other topics that I know you are interested in, such as Fingerstyle Blues, Blues Scales, and the Blues Solo.
The Uke Like The Pros Ukulele Blues Mastery book by Terry Carter is the most comprehensive book on Blues Ukulele in the universe. Make sure to check out additional Blues Ukulele videos on the Uke Like The Pros Youtube channel!
