    Forgive me UU for I have sang. It’s been almost a month since my last post. I’ve been traveling a lot and now we’re in the holidays. The good new is that my Uke travels with me and my dexterity has gotten better and better.

    I think I’m down for a Tom Petty song and a Classic picking song on 12/27 open Mic.

    Multi fingering has open up all sorts of chord shapes for me that I had no clue how to do before.

    I need to check in to see if there is an easier way to make Fm and pinky muting still eludes me.

    A word of encouragement to those reading this far into my practice log. Months ago when I joined UU a few intermediate songs I wanted to try eluded me. I now find myself being able to mechanically execute these songs and am not intimidated by them. Just a little practice and I could play them through with confidence.

    Hang in there! I improve slightly each month. You will too.

    Try this one if your new: https://ukuleleunderground.com/2017/02/uke-lesson-110-tonight-you-belong-to-me-steve-martin-from-the-jerk/

    Come back in 6 months and try it again.

    At this time, less than a year a UU, I’m willing to say I’m a solid intermediate player. I play 1-2 hours 6 days a week without fail. I’m willing to post at least once weekly if anyone is interested.

    I picked up a Guitar today for the first time in almost 35 years. After noodling around with it for 30 minutes it was surprising to me how much came back once I figured out the lower 3 strings. A fret board iis a fret board right?

    technically an ukulele is just the bottom 4 strings a guitar with a capo on the 5th fret. That’s one of the benefits to learning to play the ukulele, Because a lot of the knowledge transfers easily to all other fretted instruments, you could easily find yourself able to play the guitar and bass once you master the ukulele.

    Cool song. I posted up the failure song I wasn’t able to play. Thankfully attending has gotten me 2 new songs I want to learn. Allan played an awesome Classical Gas arrangement and I am sounding out his intro. Next is Stairway to Heaven, but I want to do a solo version.

    Just when I was getting comfortable I joined a local ukulele group. Within the group is a 70+ year old Hawaiian player with a low G tuning. Upon his encouragement I switch to a low G.

    Wow!!!!!!!

    The extra few deeper notes changes a lot. Do I like it? Not sure???? Some songs (playing chords) sound awesome with the low G while others sound awful.

    My new Hawaiian friend is not only encouraging me to play scales but is requesting that I recite the letters as I play scales so that I can improve. He is also requesting that I play chords below the fourth fret. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! mind blown
