Wow Stian! Impressive. 🙂September 16, 2019 at 7:09 am #30676
What a hard challenge!!!
Triplets at 150 bpm…
But only by pain and fun you will be a better uke player..
It’s my first attempt.

I’m only half-way this exercise. Really hard!
On the vids on YT I see the players of this style holding their uke or banjolele very high up the chest to keep the strumming arm more or less in the same line as the strings. I tried that and it gets much easier indeed.
Because of my anatomic model the uke slips all directions so I loose time to go from one technique to the other.
Maybe I should put the drill into my uke and add a strap button or become an Amazon.September 17, 2019 at 10:21 am #30690
What great rhythm, Brenna. And Jina, I’m not even halfway finished the strum course, so there will be no 5 foot two for me.. at least this month, but I will do it.
Just wondering, how would this song translate into meters/centimeters. LOLSeptember 17, 2019 at 10:23 am #30691
Fantastic, Stian. Love that sound!September 17, 2019 at 11:03 am #30693
One and a half meters eyes of blue ricky. Two really has a better ring with blue.😉
The only words I can think of that rhyme with meter already have a funny song of their own song already. lol. So our friends across the pond will just have to suffer singing in a measurement system that’s hard for them to probably visualize. 😁September 17, 2019 at 11:21 am #30694
I tried different harm positions to obtain sufficient velocity on Triplets.
It isn’t easy..September 17, 2019 at 6:01 pm #30704
brettboy – Love the vocal and the comment humor, hilarious! The tempo change from the 1st to 2nd theme was really cool, but I think for practicing, I would keep it steady throughout all themes. By doing this, you’ll be better able to focus on cleaning up the tricky areas. And as always, this comes down to targeting those areas and applying the three practicing steps.
jedart – Here is a video with my feedback 🙂
stianukulele – I shared this with Chris, he and I both loved it! Keep up the great work 🙂
brenna – First off, that uke sounds so good! Second, bravo! Technique looks great, I think the only thing that I would suggest is to practice it at a slower tempo, so that you can focus on cleaning up some of the tricky sections and getting the transitions a little smoother. Excellent work overall!September 17, 2019 at 6:50 pm #30707
Thank you Andrew!!!
I’ll try to play smooter and clean. I’m not yet at my speed objective.
I hope to convince my son to play a walking bass line on it..

Ok I know I can do better, ok I know I made a mistake, but I wanted to insert my attempt and continue training. I hope to be able to insert a better one by the end of the month (otherwise I will insert it later). I really like this piece to learn.September 19, 2019 at 6:23 pm #30861
@andracass – Way to go! That was definitely the best performance I’ve seen from you this year. Awesome job! I think theme 1, 2, and 4 are great; so I’d approach these with continual practice. But technique & rhythms look good here!
For theme 3, go back and re-watch the mechanics breakdown lesson on this technique. Chris talks about using the index finger to perform the entire technique and to keep your hand in a constant eighth note, up/down swinging motion. Getting the mechanics down should help you tackle this section better.September 20, 2019 at 3:48 pm #30873
Thank you, I will follow your advice and promise to post another registration in a few days.September 21, 2019 at 8:36 am #30878
