This week Matt revisits a topic that he covered way back in episode 2, when he introduced two different ways to position your thumb while fretting chords. Now Matt goes into more detail, describing the benefits and challenges of each and how you can utilize both positions to maximize support while maintaining good fretting habits. He also shows you a few specific examples that illustrate the need for either the thumbs up or thumbs in. As always, Matt emphasizes the importance of efficiency, and encourages you to set yourself up for success. Check out Webcam Session Ep.2 - Am I Holding My Uke Right? for more thumb talk and general tips on supporting your ukulele, and watch Webcam Session Ep.30 - Focused Fretting Fingers for more pointers on efficient fretting habits. Give thumbs up AND thumbs in a try, and let us know what you think.
