Hey UUers!

Many, many of you have been asking for more song lessons from Hawaii, so you can play your uke with a little more Hawaiian flair - so this month we're bringing you exactly that, with the iconic "Waimanalo Blues" by Country Comfort. For this episode of Uke Lessons, Aldrine shows you a pretty simple arrangement of the song that you can add an easy-to-follow Hawaiian Riff to, making your playing sound distinctly Hawaiian. And for those of you who were waiting for an authentic "Slack-Key" arrangement of this song, sit tight, we're releasing a complete slack-key solo version of this song on UU+ later this month!

Also for all of you UUers in Australia, Aldrine will be making his very first trip to Australia this month for SPRUKE: the Brisbane Ukulele Festival

  1. Just as a minor detail from play-along video … play-along uses four chords G, G7, D, C instead of just three (G, D, C), but I guess G and G7 are close enough to each others that you can do it with three ?…
