Ukulele Advanced

Ukulele Advanced: Week #2

 List of Goals for the week:

  • Warm Up: C Major ascending and descending three times each day

  • Scale: read G major three to five times each day

  • Technique: rest strokes thumb on every scale

  • Repertoire: “Here Comes the Sun” intro melody

  • Additional Studies: clap rhythm to HCTS intro

We learned our G major scale this week!  We focused on using the thumb to play rest strokes on our scales, an important technique for this session’s tune and many other things in the future. We spent a lot of time reviewing syncopations and ties, including ties over the bar line. And we looked at the intro melody to our recital tune, “Here Comes the Sun.”
