Hey UUers!

It's October - a month of spooky surprises, falling leaves, and uke playing awesomeness to get you into the spirit! This month on Uke Lessons, Aldrine breaks down the chords, strumming, and picking for the song "Valerie" as done by Amy Winehouse. We've been excitedly waiting to release this to all of you, especially because the Play-Along features the lovely and talented up-and-coming ukulele player, Ms. Karlie Goya. You may be fooled by her youthful looks, but as soon as she starts singing, you'll be a believer, too.

Karlie improvised a bunch of her ukulele picking in the video as well, so for all you UU+ members wanting to learn the picking that she does in the middle of the song, check out the video below:

And if you want to learn to improvise ukulele picking for yourself, be sure to check out Solo Secrets Revealed in the Improvement Systems section to level-up your uke playing! Have fun learning and playing along with this upbeat tune and as always, if you have any questions about your playing or need anything at all, we got your back. Play on, uke players
