About Us is dedicated to helping people interested in the ukulele discover the real beauty of this little instrument, unlock its secrets, and then share their enthusiasm with the world!

Owned and operated by BeatNik, a self-described Ukulele Hedonist who learned how to play the very same way you are right now – by finding some cool, helpful sites online and watching some great tutorial videos.

I hope this site helps you on your path to ukulele mastery, and that as you play the winds of the islands sweep over you and free you from the stresses of life.

    Beatnik, your software looks great. Please suggest how to use it (i.e. a programme to follow) to improve ukulele skills. I’m looking for a systematic way to use the programme.

    Mac compatible? App for ipod?

    Sounds like fun

    I am Alex from Dresden, Germany, and I am sending this info to various addresses worldwide to announce my “Scandinavian Ukulele Safari” End of June to August, hoping to meet uke players and people that share our little big patience for the ukulele.

    To make the tour known to folks that live in, or travel those countries this summertime I would appreciate very much any forwarding to friends, posting in blogs, or a link to my start page >>> – from where detailed infos are available in English (and in German). On the road the pages will be brought up to date as far as possible.

    If you think this message was boring, just ignore it, and please excuse me. I won’t send more infos, exept you ask for.

    Thanks & kind regards

    PS. You may copy the small “safari” logo for a link if you want so.

    BeatNik,How did you come up with that name?? I was one back in the late 50’s early 60’s. I lived in the Village on the West side….Played Congas in the Cafe Wha on MacDougal…………………..Kouko

    Speak Ukulele looks great! Just wondering, does it include the facility to learn chord progressions. That is, if a tune is in the key of C, will we learn that the progression is C, F, G?

      This version of Speak Ukulele is focused on the ability to recognize and retain chord positions. There will be product upgrades in the future, and this may be a great addition. Thanks!

    Bravo. Nice looking site. We need to get more uke clubs/meetings going in Southern California.
