Hey UUers!

Saturday is here, you've got your ukulele ready to rock, and it's time for some Uke Minutes! This week, Aldrine shows you a nifty technique you can use to easily go from strumming to finger picking or to place more emphasis on accented strums - the Rest Strum. This one is a pretty basic technique in Flamenco music (for more Flamenco techniques check out Uke Minutes 82, 83, and 84), but can be used for pretty much any style of music you can think of. Try it out and let us know what you think!

Keep strummin' that uke & hope your Holidays are merry and bright!

  1. I have recently been working on my Flamenco technique, so this rest strum will be nice to add to my uke playing. Thanks.

    PS. And I’ll head over to Uke Minutes 82, 83 and 84 for more Flamenco tips. Thanks again 🙂
