      那兩本是我買來在 UkeJam Party 送給學員抽獎的。
      如果你想要,我可以將多買的以$238賣給你,或者你可以自己去PageOne睇下有無,又或者你可以自己上amazon訂購都得。

    It’s not really a 書評 cause it’s the same dude, writing the book and the blog~ Steven, you should write a book too!

    Haha, actually this is my first uke book~ Kinda give up reading after page 83 (book mark still there~)

    It’s a great book, but I feel like they focus too much on the strumming pattern. It’s too “textbook".

    You might like the Hear the Strum DVD. I am a student of Guido (this dude http://www.musiclessonsvancouver.com/page6/page6.html) and my other uke friends they really like the DVD. I never bought one, so I never watch it. (Com’on, I already pay for lesson… so i am too cheap to also buy the DVD~)

      Oh, and the big Guido idea is, no need to “dead" remember the strum pattern. Just play when you feel like strumming~ The chords are dead and on paper, just change chord when you feel like it’s the right time to change~

      1.我無睇到Strum果部份,有時間你可以睇下Chapter 9,入面教了少少編曲的技巧,不錯的。
      2.我本書寫左大半,不過唔知幾時完成同面世。 :p
      3.嘩!那dvd未計運費都要成$35加紙,太貴了… -_-! 不過有d興趣….

      1.PageOne應該有,之前問斷左貨,你可以打電話去問問,好似賣$250左右。
      2.另外你可以去amazon.com買,至於幾多錢就視乎你選那種運輸方法。

    多謝你的回覆!! 我之前以為留唔倒言, 因為之前返來睇時睇唔返自己個留言, 收到電郵才返來睇。我已喺第二度訂左, 但估計要等半個月才能到手, 只好慢慢等了。
    好高興搵倒呢個網站, 我以後會繼續留意呢度, 跟你學習! 期待你的分享! ^^

    i should probably take order from you guys, buy everything and bring them to hk next time i go back~ Many uke books that i can get from amazon.ca (although they are 3~5 bucks more than US amazon, still save $$ from shipping).

    Might be a good idea to check out TomLee hk too~ i get all my uke stuffs (not book) in TomLee in Canada.

      那是香港最多uke賣的店舖的網頁,不是blog來的。

       
      • jtycc

        2012/08/22 at 02:47

        i know they are a shop~ but they have some kinda “blog" on their front page with news of their shop. (haven’t been on their page for ages, so i didnt realize they have a news feed)

        And it’s so cool to have a uke booth in causewaybay time square~

      對!暫時我覺得是最全面和寫得最淺白的書。

    Do you know where I can find people to repair ukulele? My ukulele sounds strange in some keys. My ukulele teacher said it should be 走 fret, and so it may need someone to repair.

      香港好似沒專門維修uke的地方,如果找專人整,我想也不便宜。你想拿去維修的uke買了多少錢?

        The Kamoa ukulele costs me $3000, that’s why I don’t want to throw it away. It seems E string has more problems in the sound, though G and A strings sound more ok. Do you think it is just the matter of the string? (I dropped this ukulele on floor accidentally once, but there seems no damage and no cracks as seen from surface.) BTW, do you still have the stock for this book? If yes, I would like to buy this from you.

         
      • stevenukulele

        2012/08/30 at 12:44

        wa! $3000!!! where you brought it? can you bring it back and ask for help? It seems the problem of fret rather than string. The problem occur since you brought it or after you drop it? The book is out of stock ^^!

        I bought this ukulele from a building located in Carnavon Road in TST. Many ukulele players should be familiar with that place since many people learn ukulele there as well. Actually after I dropped it, I brought the ukulele to that store next day for my past teacher to check, and he said there’s no problem and no damage could be seen. I am not sure if the problem occurred before or after the dropping, but since my past teacher confirmed no damage, so it may not be good for me to bother him again. Actually 空弦 is good, just that when I press the fret on E string in particular, it sounds strange, and short (it’s made of solid wood, so the sound should not be short). So you think it is more likely a fret problem rather than string problem? That means this ukulele is cerified dead… ><

        或者係本身setting呢,去開順便問下幫唔幫到手無蝕底。另外,係店舖而唔係老師賣琴畀你,所以無抵觸的。聲音有瑕疵而已,未至於宣告死市亡。^^!

    • stevenukulele

      2012/10/15 at 20:59

      無啦!如果你有ipad/kindle,可以考慮去amazon買電子版。^^

        2012/10/15 at 23:03

        頭先打去page one問, 又一城好似仲有貨,不過要再check>.<
        想問下Ukulele for Dummies同埋Kiwi Ukulele哪一本較好?定係一齊擁有最好?XD
        (謝謝你的耐心答覆!)

         
      • stevenukulele

        2012/10/15 at 23:34

        Ukulele for Dummies較全面,如果只能買一本,我會建議Ukulele for Dummies。當然,Kiwi Ukulele也是一本好書。
