"Where do I start?" - Most people have a hard time knowing where to start, and in what order to learn things. Should you learn strum patterns first? Chords and chord progressions? What about scales?
"Switching chords is hard." - Can you play a handful of chords but when you try switch from chord to chord does it take too long? Do you have trouble memorizing chords?
"Everything goes too fast." - Playing at home by yourself is fun but when you play along with your favorite song do the chords go by too fast and you get lost?
"I don't have time." - I have kids and a full time job. I would love to sit and play ukulele all day but let's face it, I only have about 20 minutes a day to fit in practice with all my other responsibilities.
"I've tried learning on my own but I'm stuck." - There are lots of options online (YouTube, Instagram, websites, etc.) but it's hard to follow any kind of step-by-step curriculum when each videos is taught by a different person and the content jumps around so much.
Here is what Uke Like The Pros can do for you:
Discover all the chords necessary to play any song that you have every wanted to play. No more wondering "what is that chord shape" when you see chords in songs or see someone else playing. You can start showing others the 'cool' chords you know.
Develop amazing right hand technique. The strumming hand is the most important hand when playing the ukulele. I will show you techniques that will help you develop speed, strength, and dexterity.
Master the different strum patterns used in all styles of music. Finally be able to hear and play any strum pattern in any song whether it's fast or slow, complex or simple. Through the easy to follow videos I will not only show you (both in the video and with a chord diagram), but you can play along with me until you have the chords "locked" in your head and hands.
Develop a strong sense of rhythm and time. One of the most important aspects of playing music is playing with solid time. Each video has a Backing Track so you can play along with the 'band' and learn how to find the groove and keep solid time.
You'll get a logical and methodical system for learning the ukulele. The lessons were developed so you can decide where you are as a player and pick the appropriate path. Each lesson will build on things you learned from the previous lesson and you can go at your own pace.
Grow your confidence. Feel secure that the information you are learning will help you weather you want to play your favorite songs, write your own songs, play with friends, jam at the beach, or just have a good time in the comfort of your home.
Easy to follow. Each lesson has On-Screen Chords, TAB, and Notation. Keep your eyes on the videos and the screen will show you everything that I am demonstrating to you in the video.
Each lesson has the option to download the sheet music for each song and lesson. This will help you see the entire form structure of the song and will be a great resource to be able to play the songs anywhere, anytime.
Each lesson has a downloadable Backing Track. This will not only help strengthen your rhythm and strumming but will give you the excitement and fun of playing with a band.
What Exactly Will The Strumming Mini-Course Teach Me?
Lesson 1 - Essential Strum Pattern #1: This is the first of 6 lessons that will work on a specific key strum patterns and chord progressions. This lesson will teach you the I and IV chords and will develop your strumming technique.
Lesson 2 - Essential Strum Pattern #2: We are now building on our right hand technique and adding a new chord, the V chord. You will now know the most important chords in music, the I, IV and V chords. These 3 chords alone will allow you to play a crazy amount of songs.
Lesson 3 - Essential Strum Pattern #3: Here you will learn your first 'minor' chord. Minor chords help give a darker sound vs. the major chords. The strum pattern is now getting more 'busy' and will help you play songs by many of the great British Invasion bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Animals, and The Beatles.
Lesson 4 - Essential Strum Pattern #4: I like to call this chord progression and strum pattern the "Let It Be" pattern. This will give you the I, IV and V chords in a new key and help you to switch chords quickly and effortlessly.
Lesson 5 - Essential Strum Pattern #5: In this lesson you will be introduced to the vi chord. This chord is typically a minor chord and really adds a new flavor to the I, IV and V chords. The strum pattern uses mainly 1/8 notes and is really going to strengthen your strumming hand.
Lesson 6: Essential Strum Pattern #6: This is the 'granddaddy' of all strum patterns. Once you master these pattern you will be amazed at your ability and how many places you can apply this technique. Plus, you will be introduce to your first seventh chords, the basis of blues and jazz progressions.
