Chunking, Action, and Lefties
On this week's Thursday Live Lesson, the UU gang covers chunking, action, and lefties. The guys use an assortment of analogies while explaining strumming motion and the chunk. From construction cranes to bullwhips, it somehow all ties in to playing the uke. They also give you an inside look into the different technologies they thought of using to evolve their ukulele teaching. Kahai and Aaron share some of the difficulties with said technologies and ultimately discuss the importance of just trying techniques for yourself, and seeking feedback through 1 on 1 coaching. Aldrine covers action and compensated saddles on the ukulele. The guys also recommend different options for left handed players when learning the uke.
