UKE Magazine Issue 12 - December 2017
Twelve issues marks three full years of UKE Magazine, the UK's dedicated, quarterly magazine for ukulele players. This time our cover star hails from the ukulele's spiritual home, Hawaii, in the form of ace musician and internet entrepreneur Aldrine Guerrero. He talks about his approach to the uke, his best gigs, top tips and of course, the hugely influential internet platform he co-created, Ukulele Underground.
We also review 5 beginner soprano ukuleles - perfect for you when asked for advice from friends wishing to take up the instrument. Then there's advice on ukulele pickups and Dave Suich from the Ukulele Orchestra is the latest member of that famous ensemble to tell his story.
We also have an interview with Rob Collins of TinGuitar.com on his uke-building process, a word with Ian from the Jive Aces and we catch up with Matt Stead at the recent Uke Express steam train event!
All this, plus a reader poll, competition, a focus on Ohana ukes, advice on singing with your uke and loads more!
