The blues is a universal language everyone understands. Fred has selected classic tunes that sound terrific on ukulele; some are sad, some are funny, some tell a story. Besides learning great songs by the likes of Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Blake, Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie and Henry Thomas, you'll learn licks, scales, turnarounds and techniques that'll enable you to jam with other players and ad-lib, blues-style.
