This is NOT for entry because I already own this month’s prize! It’s a fantastic uke, by the way, and tons of fun to play. Apologies for the occasional clamshell but I really like these mini lessons.February 6, 2023 at 10:47 am #56156mark1256Participant
Thanks @Andrew. I’ll keep working on the pull offs. They’ve always been a bit of a struggle for me. In fact, that is why I chose this lesson.February 6, 2023 at 5:37 pm #56189ksapp92Participant
I love fingerpicking style. This was a fun little étude, and I surprised myself by learning it in a few days! My biggest problem is my right hand, though. When I anchor with my pinky, my hand tenses up. It comes across and I playing, and more concerning, my wrist feels sore after playing for too long, which is something I definitely want to avoid. But when I just float my hand, I don’t feel like I have enough control to play finger style. Any suggestions?

Your right hand looks very tense. I can see why your wrist feels sore after playing. Hopefully @Andrew has some suggestions for you. What I would suggest is don’t plant your wrist, and during practice slow WAAAAY down. Like way slower than you think. Actively think about relaxing your hand. Since you are playing SUPER slow, you will have the time to do this. You want no tension in that hand. I hope this helps! 🙂February 6, 2023 at 6:25 pm #56191

@jgillard – Excellent playing! Only thing to point out is that you were late coming into bar 5. Other than that, timing was spot on!February 7, 2023 at 5:44 pm #56217
I agree.. my tempo did get a bit sloppy there. 😁 I’ll redo this one again before moving onto another mini lesson. 👍February 7, 2023 at 7:25 pm #56222February 7, 2023 at 8:04 pm #56224
