Are you a keen wannabe Ukulele player like the thousands of us who in the last year or so have braved taking this wonderful instrument in to our hands? Do you need help and guidance with your playing or are a little stuck and do not know where to begin?

Of course people have been playing this beautiful instrument over a hundred years now since it was introduced to Hawaii in the 1870's apparently by the Portuguese, but recently in the last few years there has been an explosion in the amount of people taking up this instrument and that can maybe be associated with the fact that some celebrities have been seen playing it (Will Smith, W.H.Macy) I can go on.

It featured also on American Idol, and also because of the wonderful music of Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole‘ (his version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow" is heavenly ecstatic) and the amazing skills of Jake Shimabukuro , are all factors in the popularity of the Ukulele.

But also, it really is a cool Instrument to learn (I'm slowly progressing), and also a major fact is, it it rather easy to learn and a very reasonably priced Instrument to buy, hence why tons and tons of people are becoming crazy mad Ukulele players as we speak.

Getting Help!

A music software download I can't speak more highly of is “Beatnik's Speak Ukulele 2 Course” you may or may not of heard of but it is raging in popularity, has a huge cult following and a growing eager community.

This software is basically a Ukulele training course that helps beginners become better players by training us to play by ear, to read sheet music and chords. There is a play by ear mode which plays some chords first a few times helping you guess what chords are been played and what chords will be played, very helpful.

Whats Inside!

There is a ton of material with this one time download such as interactive quizzes and most important, hands on one-on-one instruction, like having someone beside you correcting and guiding you. You will learn how to play over a 168 chords from memory and create your own lesson plans, really cool.

The list goes on and on of the brilliance of this music software created by Beatnik, A top class Ukulele player and software developer who also if needed can be contacted and be helpful anytime which is a reason why this has become so popular since he really is a cool dude.

You can read more in-depth information here with this Beatnik's Speak Ukulele Review , there are also videos which go through what is available and how it can help improve you as a Ukulele player (be sure to flick through you-tube also as there are killer videos that give great beginners Ukulele tips).

It is a one time download, much cheaper than paying for expensive music lessons but just as good as having someone beside you. Find out about the man himself “Who is Beatnik” and maybe you will also be inspired to really go at your Ukulele as Beatnik started out as we all have, not knowing where to start to play but learning how to correctly play. If you are keen to start off playing the Ukulele correctly from the beginning, learn the right way, have a decent Ukulele and relax and enjoy!
