Twelve Days Of Ukemas – Day Six

30 Dec

If you enjoy browsing through uke blogs to see a mix of articles on improving your playing techniques, tips on how to tackle learning new songs, music from old-time tunes and bad jokes a’plenty, then you should enjoy Danno Sullivan’s Play It Daily site.

In addition to his entertaining blog, there are many free mini-courses (including alternative ways of tackling the E chord and how beating time to tunes on the radio can improve your ukulele strumming technique), Office Hours live interactive lessons & discussions that you can access from the Free Library. Plus there are a couple of Facebook pages with more tips.

You can also take out paid subscriptions to receive more detailed learning resources, such as supplementary daily emails to Chad Johnson’s Ukulele Aerobics training manual, if you wish.

Here’s Danno with a few tips for making barre chords easier & why you will find it useful to use them:

    Thank you so much for all this very useful information. I am a beginner …C F G G7 AM A7 D7… sound familiar Ha. Most of the songs I play/sing are in these chords.
    I look forward to your emails especially fingerpicking which is my next challenge. I have been playing about 15 months.

      Hi Catherine, Thanks for the nice comments. Enjoy the rest of the Twelve Days Of Ukemas posts, as there are some other great sites that will help you coming up (including some really good fingerprinting resources)!
      Once they are done, if there’s anything else you need a pointer to, feel free to email. Happy strumming!
