Fingerstyle Ukulele (Spring 2021)
Prerequisites: ability to read tablature (tabs) and fingerpick with PIMA fingers.
You will produce a sweeter sound from your ukulele when you learn correct left-hand fingering, amp up your switching dexterity, and master right-hand techniques in fingerstyle. Also known as fingerpicking or plucking, fingerstyle empowers you to play the melody, riffs, and licks in a song. You’ll also learn to accompany songs with popular picking patterns. This path leads to chord melody arrangements, solo playing, and instrumental ensemble performance, from duets to larger groups.
