Beyond Basic Strumming for Ukulele Workshop

October 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Beyond Basic Strumming for Ukulele Graphic

As ukulele players, at some point, we all get stuck on certain plateaus. For our strumming hands, this often involves playing with the same strum pattern, no matter the song we’re trying to play. This Beyond Basic Strumming for Ukulele workshop is for those players ready to try new rhythms and work fingerpicking into their repertoire as well! We’ll use familiar songs as templates for working on new patterns, and also review how to choose the appropriate strum or picking pattern for any song in your repertoire.
