Uke Blogspot

This time’s random uke-related blog is Ralph Shaw’s The Ukulele Entertainer. The fortnightly articles give tips to help your uke playing and performance.

The article which caught my eye is UE #85 Uke-less Strumming Practice, in which he suggests using a paper bag  (or piece of card) on which to practice your strumming whilst listening to music, to make you pay more attention to the rhythms of tunes & to stop you getting stuck in a rut using the same strumming pattern all the time.

There’s also a link to an old Wheeltappers & Shunters Club clip, where Tessie O’Shea encourages the entire audience & viewers at home to play their paper bags. Eh, we had to make our own entertainment in them days…
