Ukulele Basics and Hawaiian Songs
by Erich Sylvester

Mainly for accompaniment of singing, not virtuoso instrumentals, and mainly Hawaiian in style, but including some basic pop/jazz style. Will demo various types of ukes, such as banjo-uke, baritone uke, and resonator uke.

Erich Sylvester has played banjo-uke in a jug band, and currently strums ukulele with the Faux Hawaiians, who sing classic hapa haole songs and jazz and blues standards from 1915 to 1940, featuring authentic lap steel guitar.
