Lesson Description

On this week's episode of Live Lesson Thursdays, Aldrine goes over the concept of vamps (turnarounds) in Hawaiian Music, what it is used for, and what chords they're commonly made up of. Also discussed: the Circle of 5ths, adding picking in between chords, hammering on chords, adding strumming flourishes, keeping the rhythm, and Ukulele Underground's new chat function for UU+ members.

For more on Hawaiian music, check out the Uke Minutes on Hawaiian Vamps and the UUU series, Hawaiian Ukulele
