THE rapid rise and continued progress in the popularity
of the Ukulele is readily understood and explained.
The instrument is small and light, therefore easily
It can be entirely manipulated by the hands without
the use of aids or accessories such as bows, mutes, rosin, etc.
Its four strings are tuned in such a way that chords are
easily and naturally formed, and, its sweet, resonant tone
makes it an eminently suitable instrument for accompanying,
especially the human voice.
To all this may be added the fact that any one with
the least application can acquire without the aid of a teacher,
a considerable degree of proficiency on it.
The present method makes no pretence of explaining
the advanced technicalities of the instrument,(as a matter
of fact, few players seem agreed as to method) but it does
claim to set out in simple language all that is necessary to
enable the student to learn for himself the chords that are re-
quired in accompaniments.
From this stepping stone it should be easy with a little
perseverance to proceed to the more advanced solo playing.
