The Ultimate Strumming Pattern (Part 2)
Watch the newest episodes of Webcam Sessions!
On this week's Ukulele Webcam Session, Matt continues his 4 part series on strumming. If you missed Part 1: The Ultimate Strumming Pattern (Accents), be sure to check it out first. Matt covered accents and the basic strumming pattern that he'll build off of for the entire series. This week, Matt introduces chunking into his ultimate strumming pattern. He shows you how to play a calypso chunk strum, and he mixes chunks and accents into his strumming to create a fuller sound.
If you struggle with chunking, check out Matt's Webcam Sessions (Ep.21) – How to Get a “Chunkier” Chunk. Just a heads up, Matt's method of chunking is a little different than Aldrine's approach. You can see Aldrine's breakdown of the technique in this How to Chunk - Uke Minutes.
Matt will be adding a new technique to the ultimate strumming pattern each week, so be sure to tune in for Part 3. If you want to learn more about chunks and accents, as well as lots of different strumming patterns and more, check out Matt's Ultimate Ukulele Strumming Course!
