1. I’m new to the ukulele and to musical instruments in general. I’ve playing for about 4 month and I’ve been flopping around all over the web trying to figure this thing out and a result I picked up a lot of bad habits and developed some very faulty techniques. I do know a dozen or so chords but my finger positioning for some of them made it awkward, at best, to make a smooth transition through chord progressions. Thanks to your instructions and suggestions, I am slowing down and working very hard and developing more efficient finger positioning. Mahalo nui loa

  2. Well this is great. I am so happy that I have just gone through and learn this. Aldrine mate your teaching methods are great. I am so happy that I have become a member. They way that you break it down makes it very easy.

    Thanks again

  3. The most natural and comfortable way for me to strum is to use my middle and ring fingers for the down strum and my thumb for the up strum. Is this okay or will it cause problems with advanced techniques?

  4. LOL, I assumed at first we were learning the Velvet Underground song “Sunday Morning.” Quickly realized that wasn’t it and had to do some Googling to realize there was another song by the same name, but a group called Maroon 5 I had never heard of.

  5. Love the lessons, but I might be the first to say I don’t like the song. You are doing a great job, Aldrine. I’ll master the chord progression just to do that, but I don’t think I want Sunday Morning as part of my repertoire! 🙂

  6. I have alot of trouble with strumming patterns. Maybe it is co-ordination but the down-up thing doesn’t do it for me. I do better with just listening to the strum and then following it.

  7. I am so excited about my lessons each week. I’ve had my ukulele since November but I am really picking up it up now! Thank you sooooo much!

  8. I know I’m a few years back from when you taught this, just wanted to say thank you so much for an easy to follow instructions, Im hoping there will be songs like tayler swift to Jason Mraz in the future.
