Play 2 Ukulele Strumming Patterns


A ukulele is a four stringed instrument and can be either really beautiful sounding or really squeaky. Depends on how much you practice ;)

I'm using them to show the strumming patterns and I will be doing a guide of the song soon :) (finger crossed that I'll be able to learn it :P)

The second pattern is D-chuckUDUDU. Okay I know your probably thinking "what in the world is a chuck?!" But it's not nearly as hard as you think. It is basically the movement of slapping your hand

Against the instruments finger board, near the end.

So, you just learned two new strumming patterns! Yay you! Now go and practice them to your hearts content <3
