    Another video that I recorded earlier in the summer.
    I love to go out camping at weekends in my van to remote locations where I can strum and sing away all I want without any complaints from the neighbours…

    Hello,
    I had my first private lesson with Aldrine last night which was fantastic.
    I have been following many of the free Ukulele Underground videos along with others for a few years and learned basic chords and how to play lots of songs, but my main problem has been that transposing songs into a key I can play also often throws them into a key I can’t sing.

    I joined Ukulele Underground a few weeks ago as I have hit the limit of what I can learn by myself.
    I am progressing back through the basics and trying to relearn things and overcome the bad habits I have picked up that are preventing me from progressing.

    Aldrine immediately spotted that I was holding chords incorrectly with my wrist twisted and left hand squeezing the neck too tightly between thumb on back of neck and figures on strings. He explained and demonstrated to me the position my wrist should be in and how to get pressure by supporting my uke correctly under right arm and across chest rather than supporting it too much by the hand which is supposed to be doing the chords.

    This simple realisation will make an immense difference to the freedom of movement I have in my left hand to make the chord shapes and will also relieve the strain I have been putting on my thumb pressing against the back of the neck.

    Many thanks
    Paul
