    I really enjoyed this Week 4 lesson! Rolls and fingerpicking are great fun!
    I shot these videos outside, it’s 38 degrees out. So I’m using the temperature as my excuse as to why I didn’t play my best! LOL

    In both of the videos, I notice I’m struggling to strum higher on the neck. I think it’s because I’ve had a year of playing over the soundhole and I’m finding it hard to change where I strum. To my ears there’s no difference. My wife agrees, she teaches piano and guitar. She says there’s more of a sound difference with the smaller concert and soprano ukes. I’m going to continue to try to strum higher however.

    Part 1: Chords: C, C7, F, G7
    Fingerpicking with thump and pinky, CEGA pattern.

    Part 2: Chords: C, Am, F, G7
    Fingerpicking with TPM fingers. CEGA pattern.

    Completed Ukulele 101 – Week 1: Intro to Ukulele.

    Just watched the video and strummed along. It was too basic for me, so I’m skipping the homework. I’m going to go through 101 because it looks like it addresses some of my weaker points.
