Ukuleles for Peace is one of the most deserving charities around. It was set up by Israeli ukulelist Paul Moore to bring together Jewish and Arab children into a ukulele orchestra to play together, make friends and build links between the communities that stretch far beyond the group itself. You can find out more about Ukuleles for Peace in this video (and part 2 here).
To keep the project going and expanding, they need funding to provide ukuleles, kazoos and other accoutrements and that’s why the net’s best ukulele tabbers have got together to create an ebook with all the proceeds going directly to Ukuleles for Peace.
When you buy the ebook, you’ll get arrangements and tabs of 16 pieces from James Hill, Mark Kailana Nelson (writer of Fingerstyle Solos for Ukulele), Dominator, Brian Hefferan, Ken Middleton, Wilfried Welti and Woodshed. All tabs come with an MP3 including an exclusive MP3 from James Hill.
Quick warning: if you’re using iPad/iPhone/Android you can’t download directly to your gadget read this for more info.
