Learn to play "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas on Ukulele
This month's Whiteboard Request teaches you how to play the 1978 hit song "Dust in the Wind" by the band Kansas. Fun fact, band member Kerry Livgren actually created the iconic guitar riff as an exercise to learn fingerpicking. His wife overheard his fingerpicking exercises and encouraged him to add lyrics to turn it into a song. While the original song doesn't utilize strumming, Aldrine cooked up a nice strumming pattern to evoke the same feel. He also walks you through the chords, and offers some pointers for their transitions. And of course, he teaches you how to play that iconic fingerpicking.
