Beyond  beginners!
Intermediate   ukulele

This course is designed for people that have been playing a little while but would like to take things beyond simple strumming and chord playing. It works as a follow on course from the Beginners course, but also as a stand alone course for anyone wishing to go further with their uke playing. We take a first look at chord melody playing and soloing, dip into some theory and look in detail at adding dynamics to your playing.

Try the sample videos below for free and if you enjoy them you can subscribe to the whole 23 part course plus the two other main courses with Silver membership, or EVERY course with Gold.

INTERMEDIATE UKULELE - 23. HAWAIIAN TURNAROUNDS - BLUE HAWAIIAN MOONLIGHT In this video Matt teaches you how to play Hawaiian turnarounds - the classic II V I turnaround and a diminished vamp. These simple little chord progressions sound absolutely magical used in the right context. We’ll apply them to the beautiful Hawaiian tune Blue Hawaiian Moonlight. As always Matt goes into a lot of detail and shows you the crucial little details that many tutorials forget to show you.
