Tips and Technique Suggestions

As these drills don't really sound that musical. They can be played while watching TV or riding a stationary bike. Their main goal is to get in a lot of reps and develop your chops.

  • Keep your finger tips pointing to the strings. That's their job, to play notes.
  • Keep your fingers close to the strings, ready to go. Your fingers need to be over the frets and string that they are currently playing or going to play. Four fingers can cover four frets.
  • Always play in-control and accurate. This is easy to accomplish if you do the drills SLOW and in-control.
  • If the next note is higher and on the same string, keep the current finger down – No need to release the string just to press is down again.
  • Do ALL drills ascending and descending, the same drill. 1234 ascending and 4321 descending are different drills. There are 24 distant four finger possibilities.
  • Start on different frets.
  • Start on string one and play descending then ascending.
  • Do a sub set of the strings. Get really good at strings one and two then add string three, etc. Build on a solid foundation.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee

Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
