Four Finger Slide Fingering Drills for Ukulele

Slide is used when the passage can not be played within a single 4 fret span or when more notes per string are needed to produce a particular effect. It’s also used in situations where a gradually ascending or descending diagonal motion best solves the physical and musical demands of the passage.

For four finger gymnastics go back to the four finger basic drills and slide one, two, three or four fingers - one, two, three or four frets.

After mastering the slide fingering principle the next fingering principle I typically cover with my private students is the Pass fingering principle.

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
