Overview

The guitalele (or guitarlele) is one of the most versatile instruments combining the best aspects of the ukulele and the guitar. Yet, the amount of material available for the guitalele is limited, until now. Guitalele for Ukulele and Guitar Players by Terry Carter is the first of its kind. A complete method book focusing on all the essential keys to becoming a great guitalele player and musician. There is also a companion video lesson course (sold separately) available from Uke Like The Pros.If you have tried to search for videos or books focusing on the guitalele you will notice there is not a lot out there. Most of the guitalele videos on YouTube are classical guitar players playing standard repertoire classical pieces. Although they are great to watch, there is little educational value in them.If your like me you have been seeing more pictures of guitarlele pop up on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook. It seems like every ukulele and guitar manufacture out there is now making a guitarlele (KoAloha, Yamaha, Flight, Gretsch, Kanilea, Kala). This is totally cool as the instrument becomes more and more popular but how are you going to learn without proper instruction.Well you have come to the right place. I have taken my 25 years of teaching experience and designed a personalized guitalele course that is perfect for the beginning to intermediate guitarlele player.Not only did I get valuable feedback from the Uke Like The Pros Community in designing this course but I also asked myself, "What would I want to learn after going through this book?"I came up with a book that is designed to walk you through a step-by-step pathway to ensure you learn all the necessary techniques & styles to make you a great guitalele player.The book will focus on Strumming Fundamentals, Essential Songs, Fingerstyle, Advanced Songs, The Blues, and Scales.This book will help you not only understand and play this incredible instrument but it will also give you the confidence needed to be a great guitalele player and musician.
