Here’s a red-hot tip for you today.
I still think ukulele how-to books are one of the best ways to get new knowledge. And bang-for-your-buck, books are the most economical source, too.
But even better than cheap is FREE!
I installed this free browswer extension. Now when I go to a book site (like Amazon or Barnes and Noble) and look up a book, the extension checks my local library and shows me the results right on the page!
So I can see the Amazon price and I can see if the book is available for free at my library.
Wow, do I love this kind of thing — technology that helps!
A few days ago, I was braggin on “Ukulele Breakthrough” by Calivin Chin (great book, on Amazon, here).
This was NOT available in my library, though it might be in yours.
FREEBIE TIP #2
So if a book is not available at your library, use your mouth and your manners and go talk to your friendly librarian and request an “inter-library loan.”
I have never had this fail for any book no matter how obscure. They’ve even tracked down sheet music for me.
Give these a try — and let me hear how it goes!
