Moving Beyond the Basics
Jim takes you firmly into intermediate territory, teaching advanced chord shapes and progressions, complex strums and accompaniments to some of the most beloved songs in popular music history.
With his usual warmth and good humor, Jim guides you through each song, slowing down the tricky parts and sprinkling the lesson with wisdom gleaned from his deep knowledge of the instrument. Before long he'll have you singing and playing arrangements to Under the Boardwalk, That Hawaiian Melody, You Made Me Love You, I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Bye Bye Blackbird, Girl From Ipanema and Blue Moon.
Jim's special guest, Lyle Ritz, is a legend, known throughout the world as one of the masters of the ukulele. He shares his ideas about the instrument and demonstrates some of his most requested instrumentals: Dream, Lulu's Back in Town, Fly Me to the Moon and Ritz Cracker.
