Watch the newest episodes of Webcam Sessions!

This week on Ukulele Webcam Sessions, Matt begins a 4 part series on strumming. In previous episodes, he's covered the "Most Boring Strumming Pattern" as well as the "Best Strumming Pattern", and now he pulls concepts and techniques from both lessons to embark on "THE ULTIMATE STRUMMING PATTERN". Matt uses a super common strumming as the framework for his masterpiece. He walks you though playing the basic pattern, and begins the embellishing process with the simple use of accents. He'll beef up this strumming pattern by adding a new technique each week, so be sure to tune in!
