Uke Blues: Splicing Rhythm with Licks – EP015
In this blues lesson, you’ll learn to interchange between lead and rhythm to create the sound of a one-man band. We often approach playing the blues from one of two perspectives: lead or rhythm. But what happens if you’re playing in an ensemble that lacks a secondary rhythm player… For example, a three-piece: bass, drums, and you. This type of setup means that no one is available to play the chords underneath your lead.
While the bass player can outline the harmony with their part, it still lacks the fullness of chord-work that a keyboardist or fellow ukulele player can provide. Therefore, this lesson is all about learning to do both, harmony and melody, interchangeably.
