    Kinda dropped off posting and kinda dropped off practicing a little bit. I did a couple Songs Made Easy: Valerie and Fallin’ then attempted the regular lesson for Valerie. I’m still struggling with the chords, but I think starting with the Songs Made Easy version first helped kind of get the song in my head before I made it more complicated.

    My goal next week is to be a little more focused. Or at least practice every day. I’ve kind of been only managing about 5/7 days since my last post.


    This is what I worked on this week::

    Songs: “Banana Pancakes” by Jack Johnson and “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran
    Warm-Ups: Shake, and Week 5 in Ukulele Aerobics book.
    Techniques Reviewed: Barre chords
    Time: Approx. 30 minutes x 6 days + an hour jam

    I feel pretty good about my progress on Banana Pancakes. I could almost keep up with the play along video at normal speed, but I’m still struggling with the pinky mutes. I think I need to look into some pinky exercises. I bought a new uke and I’m getting used to holding it. It’s solid wood and heavier than my older cheaper uke. I just got to the chords and strumming on Thinking Out Loud. I think that solo is going to take me a while so I’m going to keep working on it for next week too.
