Rhythm is inseparably linked to strums and can't really repeat that often enough!

Strumming requires a specific set of skills when applied to chords. They are:

  • Memorization of chords
  • The ability to switch chords smoothly and
  • The ability to choose and execute a suitable rhythmic strum. This is where these series of lessons will help.

Using the Chuck Anderson's Modular Phonetic Rhythm System this series of lessons explore all possible two beat rhythmic syllables.

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
