  1. I expected it to teach more about how to strum well, like improvise and techiniqes to make it sound better.

    Instead he just teaches different styles.

    The one he uses normally when singing is called the normal strum. And its just too basic. Wish he had put more emphasis on that one.

  2. “Never was and instructional video so well named, and such good value…

    I would strongly recommend this video FOR BOTH THE BEGINNER AND THOSE WHO ARE READY TO PROGRESS beyond their basic strum.

  3. This DVD is great for anyone interested in learning to play different kinds of music. Ralph Shaw is a great teacher and he makes learning fun. I have definitely gotten better by playing along with this DVD. If you are a total beginner like me, you might also want to consider his other DVD The Complete Ukulele Course taught by Ralph Shaw.

  5. Overall, good quality. To enjoy, should have a good knowledge of uke chords; he goes through the sections pretty fast, so you can’t be slowed down by figuring how to play a chord. Many strums are taught, worth the money and knowledge.
