Getting better on Malegueña, but still haven’t learned the entire piece. Feel like I’ve “mastered” Is There a Place picking and strumming. I’m using the “mastered” really loosely, but I think I’m ok with moving on to another song. I’ll keep working on Malegueña in the background.
Random playing during breaks from work today. It’s a good stress reliever to just pick up the ukulele and plink around. I pulled my old Pono off the wall, haven’t played it since I bought a Kanilea in Hawaii. The Pono just doesn’t sound as good. I tuned it up and hung it back up.
I spent some time playing various blues riffs and then figured out I could put a few of them together in combinations. Good fun.
I took 30 minutes out of my work day today, yes I’m still working during the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, and sat in my sunlit backyard playing ukulele. Nothing in particular, various chords I’ve learned in recent lessons, chunking, blues riffs and scales. It was great.
Still having fun with Ukulele 101 Week 7 Chords video. Been playing around with various progressions and strumming patterns. I recognize the bones of familiar songs, but can’t exactly place them or get the rhythms exactly right. This video is one of my favorites so far, I think.
