    Ok. So I've owned my uke for 3 years. Tuned it a few times. Heard playing uke was easier if you played guitar before but I've been afraid to try to learn new fingerings for chords. Bit played thru this with all 20 chords, night one. NOW, I get it. Barred chords pretty easy when you've played guitar - even if I wasn't good at barred chords. Now, to get calluses back? Thanks. Will print out the chords and out them everywhere so k can start going to the free group at the library I now live near. 😁 The library group sent me the link to this vid btw. Happy!

    I absolutely love these tutorials! However right now I am so incredibly frustrated with myself!! Any time I try to do any strum pattern, other than just down strums, and I try to sing at the same time, my hand forgets that it’s attached and it starts flailing about as if independent of my body. 😡🤬

    I am going back over this and picking up things I was not ready for. What does 0/1/0 mean in tabs. I thought the slash meant slide. Problem ...I can’t slide 0 to 1. Does it mean hammer? There is than no way to hammer the 0 after hammering the 1. Can you make since of it. I found it in Cantina Band tabs. (Star Wars).

    Hello Bernadette! Thanks for making this helpful video. Something happened two times with my ukulele now, and I’m not sure what it was? So when I was tuning my ukulele, I noticed that my g cord was too low. So, I turned the peg cautiously to make it go higher. It suddenly made a very loud sound, and I thought that the string snapped or something. When I checked, the sting was fine. But when I strummed the g cord, it was suddenly tuned all the way down. Is this supposed to happen? This also happened with my C cord, and that ended up being okay.

  • Shannon Duarte

    Great tutorial! Hi I'm new to learning stringed instruments and have been playing a concert ukulele for a few months now. I recently acquired a 4 string Cigarbox Guitar tuned DGBE. Could I apply what you've taught in this video to my cigarbox?

    Hi Guys , First off , you guys sounded so great , thanks. Second to get those effects , you needed to be plugged into to some sort of amp , right ? Timmy , have you ever played guitar ? , I mean you are very good. The hammers & pull offs along with the harmonics , I mean geez :) How can we hear the rest of 'Over The Rainbow' ? Also , how and where can we use the code to buy one if we live in the states ? Sometimes Hal Lenard`s website is a bit hard to navigate ?????? U know , thanks , Dreamer

    I was given a Mango wood Prono Soprano for 2019 Christmas after my sister began playing and challenged me to learn as well. so am VERY new to this (and just instruments in general). It is so much fun to play and the wood is very pretty. I was taken by your pale one with the very strong wood grain. Beautiful! Both my sister and Love all your videos and completely appreciate how much time you take to play at a beginner's speed. Thank you so much.

    Great tool to gain hand and figure strength is a PLANET WAVES Vari-Grip Hand Fitness ToolModel: PW-VG-01 & a sweeze ball. They give you strength quickly if you exercise your hand at least 2x daily. To make it so your figure tips harden faster, rap the ends of your figure tips on a hard surface like a table for 3 to 4 days and it will get you the callus that you need to press the strings with no pain.

  • Brigitte Laskowski

    I played guitar first and then picked up the Ukulele 2 and a half years ago at the Nashville Summer North American Music Merchant (NAMM)Show during musician day when they had a Ukulele Circle. After the show closed that day, I went to a local Nashville music store and purchased a Cordoba Protegé Concert Uke and a Saprano Kala for my adult daughter who has really thin figures. A month later we were with our ukes in High Park playing Jesus Loves Me (me doing a mix of chords and notes & my daughter who also is a guitar player playing lead) when Shawn Mendes came walking by liking what he heard (he had to convince us that he really was himself because we didn't believe Shawn at 1st) and asked us to play "Stitches". We had to say sorry we just began playing uke this week. I also didn't have a pro subscription to the Ultimate Guitar App yet either, so we couldn't easily look up the chords. I do know "Senorita" now though. Anyway, the real reason I'm posting is that if you really want to stretch your chord library, try learning 5th, 2nds, sus., aug. and dim. chords. Add in a capo to be able to play in Ab, Db, Eb, Gb(F#) and so on. I play lots of weird chords while playing with my 2 praise teams in church. The learning of new chords never ends.

    Impressive! This DIANA sound is so great, so fantastic and incredible. This ukulele, type Diana, is worth considering. We actually have enough instruments around 30 guitars, 5 ukuleles ... accordions. I actually wanted to buy a new keyboard now, but now it says DIANA on my birthday wish list.

    Hi Bernadette, thank you for sharing what is going on in your personal life. You are a wonderful ukulele teacher but not just any ukulele teacher. You bring a beautiful energy to your lessons that allows your students to experience even more joy and happiness as they learn how to play the ukulele. Everyone has ups and downs and it is important to know that both you and Jose will be far better off in the long run. It is best to follow what your heart says, even when it hurts in the short term. So good on you and Jose for being honest with one another and strong enough to honor what you both want for your lives. Remember, neither of you has to be right or wrong, like different chord fingerings, lifestyle choices are simply a preference. And sometimes those preferences change. To stay together would have been be much worse. Now you are both free to follow your true paths. I love your on line classes. I recently purchased my first ukulele and started watching and I am amazed at how quickly I am learning. I am an emotional learner, more than a sight reader or technical learner, so I find it easy to connect with your positive energy and love for the ukulele. Have a Happy New Year and I look forward to experiencing how 2020 becomes a year of growth and learning... for us all !!!

    I play guitar left handed and I plan to play ukulele left handed. Since there are so few left handed ukes I asked a music shop if they would restring a right handed uke to be a left handed uke. They said they would, but that it would cause damage to the uke over time because of it putting tension on the wrong places. I'm wondering if you know how long it would take to damage the uke? There's no left handed ones that I really want, but I'm worried I will have to buy one because I don't want to cause damage to a right handed one.
