KEN MIDDLETON / UK / BLUEGRASS UKULELE

Ken Middleton has put some lessons and nicely prepared TAB song print outs for us ukulele players. I like his improvisations while sitting in his backyard garden. Ken has spent a lot of time putting this together. I thought that he’d be from Tennessee, but alas he's is from Newcastle under Lyme in the UK.

Ken, if you ever read this, thank you for all the work that you have put in for all of us out in the world to try. Also, my wife and I are Anglophiles and love watching UK mysteries and miniseries, such as Hamish MacBeth. Are you located anywhere near Midsomer?

He has a load of tutorials for guitar, and it appears the ukulele section is growing too. Here’s Ken’s YouTube Playlist Videos and TABs:
