Fingerpicking 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. You can play fingerpicking patterns as accompaniment while you sing instead of strumming, or you can mix it up by strumming in some places in a song and fingerpicking in other places. Pay special attention to the right hand fingering at the bottom of the tablature (T=Thumb, I=Index, M=Middle). Click on the PLAY VIDEO buttons for a video example of how to play each pattern. The MIDI files are computer generated so they might not sound a lot like a uke, but they can still be helpful to practice along with or at least listen to so you can hear the right notes.

Clawhammer 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. The thumb should automatically go to the top string (4th string) as the strum is being made, all in the same motion. Except for the bending at the wrist, the hand is basically held rigid. The technique for playing the single strings is basically the same as the beginning of the strum.

Fingerstyle Uke - ukulele lessons - arpeggios Creative Right Hand Arpeggios Most of the music we play and hear is in 4/4 timing, which means there are four basic beats to each bar: One Two Three Four It might seem useful to assign the thumb (T) to the fourth string, the index (i) to the third, the middle (m) to the second and the ring (r) finger to the first: --------------a---------- ----------m------------- -------i------------------ ---T--------------------- However, the standard ukulele tuning has the third string as the lowest note, and often it is good practice to use the thumb on that string. --------------m-------- -----------i------------- -------T---------------- ---T-------------------- These four beats can be subdivided: One and Two and Three and Four and So, if you want to play arpeggios over all of these beats, you might use the following: --------m-------------m------- ------i-----i-----i-------------- ---T---------T----------------- --------------------T---------- or: Try making up a few more - they are all valid.
