Strumming can be hard. I know that it was for me when I was learning. This collection of four courses is designed to help you learn everything you’ll need to be able to play, and understand a variety of rhythms and music styles while applying new techniques to give your ukulele playing a new dimension of sound.
I created this course to break down strumming in a way that removes any guesswork. Whether you are new to the ukulele, or have struggled with even the most basic strum patterns, this method will allow you to confidently learn several basic patterns in a way that just works. I’ve never had a student who couldn’t go zero to strumming with this method!
Want some more variety to your strum patterns and techniques? This course is designed to help you learn new rhythms and how to embellish them. Techniques such as chunking and accents are applied to 14 different example strum patterns complete with chord progressions. These patterns are all themed to styles of music, from rock to reggae, so that you can fit new rhythms to songs you already know, as well as help you learn new songs. By the end of this course, you’ll have an extensive collection of new patterns and techniques that you can use with any song.
“It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing!” Jazz, rock, blues, and many other styles of music make use of a swing feel and this course is designed to help you find it. In addition to pattern examples, a 12 bar blues, and unique techniques such as the triplet strum and muting, you’ll learn a song called, ‘Uke Got Rhythm’, complete with tablature, chords, and strum pattern. With this course you’ll be able to swing with the best of them.
I made this course to show just how diverse strumming an ukulele can be. This technique is used by the best players in the world to create a depth to their sound that is totally unique to the ukulele. It’s definitely one of those things that’s better shown than told, so check out the video to see it in action!
