Fingerpicking-1 Tue 6 PM Apr 23, 2018
Fingerpicking-1 Ukulele Class. Tuesdays 6-8:15 PM, 5 Meetings, Apr 23-May 21 at Good Day Ukulele studio, Madison, WI. No book required. Prerequisite: Continuing-Beginner class. For players with little or no fingerpicking experience. Low-G tuning preferred.
Picking individual strings in repeating patterns adds subtlety, texture, and greater emotional range to your accompaniment. The uke’s naturally high voice suits fingerpicking very well. Starting with simple exercises, we'll familiarize our fingers with the necessary movements and gradually build confidence. A basic, 10-pattern repertoire slowly evolves over 5 weeks. We'll spend significant time in class playing the patterns with popular songs. Class concludes with easy examples combining fingerpicking and strumming in the same song.
