Curt Sheller and Curt Sheller Publications . A small (me, myself and I) independent, by choice, publishing company catering to the needs of musicians, guitar players and ukulele players worldwide. Offering the resources and information needed to develop as a musician. Curt Sheller Publications, created in 1995, has been on the web for over 15 years.

Taking advantage of my jazz guitar skills, I began pursuing the potential of the ukulele.
As you play the bum-ditty, keep in mind that in addition to playing the melody you are also strumming the chords, much like a rhythm guitar player plays chords. Be sure to pay careful attention to the chord changes that are written on top of the tablature. Most of the time the melody notes will be within the chord that you should be playing at the time, but sometimes you will need to move away from a particular chord position for certain notes. The strum is accomplished using the back of the fingernail of one finger only -- either the middle finger or the index finger.
Since fingerpicking requires the use of more than one finger on the right hand it can be a little more difficult than simple strumming. It’s really not that hard to do though and the results are well worth the practice it takes to get comfortable with it. In my style of playing I use the thumb, index finger, and middle finger.
