Six Secrets of Ukulele Fingering
Learn the principles to navigating the ukulele* fingerboard.
Fingering is one of the most universal topics. Whether your style is Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz or Classical, these principles will improve your technique, your solos, even your sight reading.
Think of fingering as a series of pathways. When you learn to connect these pathways, there are benefits not only to technique but also to creativity. All fingering on the ukulele can be reduced to 6 principles of motion. Each principle has physical and musical characteristics that you can use to improve your playing.
* The fingering principles in the books are suitable for ANY ukulele tuning.

Fingerpicking for Ukulele - Alternating Thumb Style
Fingerstyle or Fingerpicking is the technique of playing by plucking the strings directly with the fingertips, fingernails, or picks. For ukulele, it's common to employ a hybrid approach that incorporates elements of fingerpicking with strumming techniques. Fingerpicking can be organized into two styles: An alternating thumb style that uses the thumb and two fingers. And, the Traditional classical fingerstyle that uses the thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers. Fingerpicking for Ukulele - Alternating Thumb Style focuses on the alternating thumb fingerpicking style through a series of graduated lessons/chapters incorporating your index and middle fingers with the alternating thumb.
