Hey UUers!

It's Saturday again and another Uke Minutes is here for you to devour and digest! Since we've been talking a lot about blues, here's an easy way of creating solos over the Basic Blues Progression that we showed you in Uke Minutes 51 ("Blues Ukulele Chords") and Uke Minutes 56 ("12-Bar Blues").

Because this specific blues progression uses only 7th chords, you can choose from the notes in the alternate 7th shapes as a quick way of creating solos. In fact, choosing notes from alternate fingering positions for any chord that you are playing is a great way to come up with solos for anything. In combination with your Minor Pentatonic Scale or Blues Scale, you'll be whipping up your own blues licks like a pro!

And as always, if you've got any questions, you know where to find us. Have fun and keep rocking that uke!
