We'll also be using hammer-ons AND pull-offs as a left-hand technique. Music and tab will be provided.

Rat Pack 2 - Ukulele Uff

Fancy Stuff

My playing style is centred around the ukulele masters of the 1920s, trying to recreate the wonderful complex sounds they made with their instruments and in a way that still sounds as urgent and modern as it ever did.
In this workshop I intend to dissect some aspects of my own playing style. I will show you some of my favourite techniques and how to use them. Including fingerpicking and strums, all rooted in the traditional style. In other words, I'll show you some fancy stuff.

Ukulollo

"Tricks, Licks & Beats, all my secrets revealed!

I will confess everything I use in my technique, including how to arrange a song with ukes and some fancy rhythmic patterns."

We will start learning surprising versions of "Imagine" by John Lennon and other songs to understand every aspect of the process.

The key to understand music is to get rid of the answers we can easily find on the internet (chords and paperworks) and train our ears and our brain in order to work everything out by ourselves. This is going to be the ultimate goal of the workshop.

That is the way I rearranged Ravel's Bolero for many ukes here
