A NEW DVD LESSON FROM Fred Sokolow
JAMMING THE BLUES ON UKULELE
AN 80 MINUTE DVD WITH PDF TAB/MUSIC BOOK
Playing the blues helps you lose the blues! The blues is improvisational...it's a language...and in this 80 minute lesson, Fred Sokolow shows you how to speak that language and ad-lib solos and accompaniment, whether you play solo or with other people.
You'll learn to play in any key, all over the fretboard, with special attention to six keys: F, C, G, D, A and E. In each key, you'll learn:
• The first-position chords you need to play a 12-bar and 8-bar blues,
• Boogie licks for accompaniment,
• Blues turnarounds,
• A blues scale and blues licks and how to use them to improvise solos.
• Moveable blues chords you can use to play in any key,
• Three moveable blues positions (blues boxes) you can use to play single-note solos in any key,
• Moveable, double-note Chuck Berry-style licks for soloing.
• Classic blues tunes: See, See Rider, Stagerlee, Backwater Blues, St. Louis Blues and more.
The blues sounds great on a uke, and here's all the info you need to get started playing it!

A NEW INSTRUCTIONAL UKULELE VIDEO & BOOK
FROM FRED SOKOLOW: UKULELE JAZZ CHORD SOLOS
All the arrangements stay in the first 5 frets (nearly all the time!)
so they're easy and fun to play.

In this 86 minute video lesson, Fred Sokolow shows you how to play easy fingerstyle chord/melody solos for classic jazz tunes:
Yes Sir, That’s My Baby
Sweet Georgia Brown
Dinah
Has Anybody Seen My Gal?
The Man I Love
Oh, Lady Be Good
Somebody Loves Me
Bye Bye Blackbird
All By Myself

Along the way, you'll learn some of the principles of chord soloing and lots of new jazz chords... and just for fun, Fred always provides some historical context for the songs.

• Fred slows down each tune, and split-screen closeups of both hands make it easy to see what he's doing.
• A PDF tab/ music book has all the songs written out in detail.
• All the lyrics and chords are written out for each tune, to help you strum and sing the songs.

The DVD & PDF book are $19.95
