In the last finger picking and strumming song in the beginner’s course, first ending of C melody, there is an Em chord. I notice in your teaching demo that you seem to be using Form 1 with the left hand. The thumb appears to be at the back of the neck and the hand seems to swivel at the second finger on fret 2 string 1 as pinkie reaches down to fret 4 string 3. My question is how do you use left hand form 1 with confidence when you are playing standing up and not using a strap? With the round shape of the back of the ukulele neck, the thumb tends to slip out of place allowing the neck to drop.
