Uke Crazy Bitches 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.

Uke Scales - Three Notes Per String Method Hey guys!I come from a guitar background and was taught to play scales using the "Three Notes Per String" method. I've been searching around the web but can't seem to find a complete guide on ukulele scales using this method. So I figure I would try to start my own.Here is what I've come up with so far. Below are JPG's showing the Major, Natural Minor, Major Pentatonic, and Minor Pentatonic scales (in standard C ukulele tuning). I tried to write all in the key of C, but written the Natural Minor scale in the key of A. 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. Try it both ways and pick the one that suits you best. 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.

Fake Strums Tutorial | Ukulele Hunt The fake strum is a simple technique that I use a lot in my arrangements. So it’s about time I gave it a post of its own. It’s used in fingerpicking pieces to play full chords. Here it is played twice slowly then up to speed. Why bother? Instead of doing this, you could just strum the strings and get the same effect. Here’s a quick video combining picking and fake strums. In Tab There isn’t any established tab for this as far as I know. You can do fake up-strums as well (although it’s more tricky and I can’t remember ever using one).
