Hey UUers!

Summer is in full swing! There's something about those special summer traditions (like barbecuing in the backyard, soaking up the sun, or playing the sprinklers) that brings us back in time. And this month's Uke Lesson is a blast from the past, teaching you how to play the last #1 hit from the 80's: "Another Day in Paradise" by Phil Collins.

This hard hitting tune is in an unusual key of Ab, which will give some of you a great opportunity to add to your chord repertoire. As always, Aldrine walks you through each of the chords and breaks down the chord progressions. He also shows you a variety of strumming patterns ranging from easy, to medium, to chunky. Just like a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book, you can decide which pattern you'll pursue. To top it all off, Aldrine teaches you 3 different pickings (including that iconic riff)!

We hope you're all enjoying your summer! Have fun challenging yourself with this month's lesson, and be sure to play along with our special homage Play-Along video! Stay cool and keep strummin'
