Blues Turnaround Ukulele Lesson (Advanced Uke Tutorial)

Hi there! Welcome to this tutorial where I teach you how to play an Advanced Blues Turnaround in A. This is usually played by pro ukulele players. The last two bars of a twelve bar blues is a turnaround. We are in the key of A and as we know there are only 3 chords, the A chord(I), the D7 chord(IV) and the E7 chord(V). The A and E7 chords are the ones used in turnaround. These are bars 11 and 12. First I will explain how to play the turnaround and after that I will play the 12 bar Blues. This will explain how the turnaround becomes a part of the entire Blues structure. Want to know about more turnarounds? You can check out Blues greats likes B.B King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, and Robert Johnson.

Day Tripper Ukulele Tutorial Beatles

Hi! Welcome Back to 4k Chord Mania! In this tutorial, I will explain how to play the Intro to Day Tripper by The Beatles. This tutorial is a from the “10 Classic Rock Licks For Ukulele.” Although this is a special course for Ukelikethepros members, I wanted to share it with you. The Beatles played the Day Tripper in key E. This is great on the guitar but not the ukulele. For your making it easy to play on the ukulele, I have transposed it on Key C of the ukulele. This lick has all single notes and playing it could be challenging on the original tempo. The intro is based around two chords of Key C (the C7 chord and F7 chord). The best way to increase your speed and accuracy is by practicing each lick slowly and memorizing it.

Autumn Leaves Ukulele Cover

Confused about how to master your ukulele? Don’t worry! All your queries will be resolved on Due to an overwhelming number of requests for Jazz lately, I have decided to jump into it. I was avoiding Jazz on the ukulele because I felt that not many people were interested in it but obviously, I WAS WRONG! So I will put my two degrees in Jazz (Master of Music from the University of Southern California in Studio /Jazz and a Bachelor of Music from San Diego State University in Jazz/Music Education) and help you learn Jazz. I will teach you the Beach Jam ukulele cover of “Autumn Leaves” by Johnny Mercer. Although I am beginning with only a cover song today, you can visit my site for more courses on Jazz.
Today I will be playing lots of different chord inversions. The essential chords for this song are Amin7, D7, GMaj7, CMaj7, F#min7(b5), B7, Emin7 which are shown in this lesson. In addition to these, there are...

What is a Guitalele?

You probably already know but I recently got a guitalele sent to me from KoAloha.
I have fallen in love with this instrument. 
What I love about it is that it's a ukulele, but with 2 extra bass strings it allows for a wide dynamic range, fuller chords, and more of the ability to be a self contained instrument (no bass player needed).
The other thing that is really cool, is that the instrument is easy to handle. Guitars are amazing but, acoustic guitars can be big. Because this guitalele is on the body of a tenor ukulele, it's real easy to hold and handle.
I also have noticed that there are not tons of instructional YouTube videos on the guitalele.
Maybe that's because not many people own one.
But here are my thoughts.
I think it's going to become more popular as we move forward.
Although it's becoming more popular there's not a lot of company's making a quality guitarlele. Yamaha has made one for years but it seemed to attract the guitar players who wanted to make the switch.

Get Your Very Own KoAloha Ukulele (or Guitarlele)

Many of you know that I have been sponsored by KoAloha Ukuleles from the very start.
Matter of fact they supported me from the very beginning. I first reached out to them before I never filmed a single ukulele video.
I guess they liked my energy and my vision. Although having a good friend of mine, who was a KoAloha artist, vouch for me probably didn't hurt either.
Anyway, a few months ago KoAloha approached me and thought it would be cool to see if any of my members would be interested in a KoAloha Ukulele.
You know me, I'll jump into anything feet first and see how it goes.
So they send me a shipment of ukuleles and I ended up selling some pretty quickly.
If you saw my last YouTube video, Guitalele UNBOXING | KoAloha Ukulele Surprise, I showed the new shipment I got of ukuleles.
I know how scary it can be investing in a ukulele that you buy online, so I decided to take some of the worry away.
I have filmed a separate video for every ukulele I have (a total of 6) and the 1...

Somewhere Over The Rainbow IZ Ukulele Strum Pattern Tutorial

Learn how to strum like IZ on the classic Somewhere Over The Rainbow in this ukulele tutorial. Free Strumming Mastery Ukulele Course

The chords I will be using are C - G - Amin – F which are from the chorus of the song. Now let me explain the strum pattern which is based off sixteenth notes. It will count as 1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a. This lesson will equip you to play on any type of ukulele, soprano, concert, or tenor, high G or low G.

This strum pattern can be played using your thumb and index finger but I will explain how you can easily play it using the index finger.

The pattern is a combination of D- Down Stroke, U- Up Stroke and M- Mute

The pattern is D DU MUDU played over and over again.

Since there are 1/16 notes, this pattern is played twice per chord. On playing it fast, this strum pattern sounds like brother Israel Kamakawiwoole IZ. The best way to learn how to play it fast is to first master it at a slow tempo and build up the speed...

Chord Mania A Major | Easy Ukulele Tutorial | 4K

Hey! Welcome back to Chord Mania! In this Chord Mania tutorial I will teach you how to play the A chord. Free Strumming Mastery Ukulele Course The A chord on the ukulele has become very popular because it is an open position chord. An open position chord is one in which at least one of the strings is open, i.e. there is no finger on it. Although the A chord is an open position chord, it turns into a bar chord when you move it up the neck to different chords! But, I will explain about the bar chords after some time.

I will first explain the fingering for the A chord

+ 2nd finger on the 4th string 2nd fret

+ 1st finger on the 3rd string 1st fret

+ Open 2nd string

+ Open 1st string

You might have noticed that the A major and A minor chords are quite similar on the ukulele. The A minor differs from A major because it does not use the first finger and keeps the third string open.

Major chords have a bright and happy touch while the minor chords...
