I’m new to uke playing, but have played other things…. not with strings but enough to know that I must be missing something.
The Left Hand Problem: When I change chords I feel out of control, (or playing open strings with nothing held down). Seems like I’m doing something wrong with my right arm in supporting. Not using a strap, but I see that should be necessary. I think I was trying not to deaden the body of the Uke too much, but can’t decide whats the right amount of support from my arm and leg below to free up my left to change more comfortably. If i post my thumb down that steadies it, but that doesn’t seem right. Figured there must be a happy medium that I’m missing.
I reviewed the Unite2 lesson on holding a Uke. The triplet run in Day-O is exposing this problem nicely for me.
Any help is appreciated. thanks,
