10 Fingerstyle Etudes for Ukulele was written as an extension of our previously published Fingerstyle Ukulele Book (also available in our store). This book is specifically geared towards players who have a basic understanding and execution of fingerstyle techniques, but need more of a challenge in their playing (ideal for intermediate and advanced players).
Our etude book includes 9 original pieces (including two duets!) by Aaron Keim and 1 traditional Swedish waltz. Each piece is accompanied by a Youtube video where Aaron plays the tune and gives instructional tips and tricks. Currently, this book is only available in a digital format, but once you purchase the book you’re welcome to print it out for your own reference.
