Ukulele Arpeggiator: Friday Links

Gary Jugart has put together a great (and free) ebook of fingerpicking studies Ukulele Arpeggiator. I’ve really enjoyed playing through them. Here’s a video I made of one of the studies. The difficulty ranges from straightforward to very tricky. If you’re looking to improve your picking you’ve got to grab it.

There’s a new DVD in Jim D’Ville’s series: Play Ukulele By Ear Vol. 3.

New free album from Nicholas Abersold Fillers including some that have been featured on Uke Hunt and one that mentions it.

On Video: Making KoAlana ukuleles (speaking of The xx), A bunch of excellent performances from the Paris festival.

    I enjoyed the video from FESTIVAL UKULELE BOUDOIR 2012. It’s nice to see Gus and Fin live but I generally liked to watch the festival a lot.

    The Captain: Glad you enjoyed it. It’s a shame Gus and Fin don’t make videos of their own accord any more.

    Hey, for you don’t tread on me types, there are a couple Gadsden Ukes on ebay. Interesting.

    I am SO downloading the Arpeggiator. Thank you!

    Watching the KoAlana video made me wonder what it would be like to play a ukulele with absolutely no finish (varnish, stain, etc). You know, a naked wood ukulele.

    Elizabeth: You’re welcome. Hope you enjoy it.

    Phredd: That’s a good point.

    I am a beginner to music, let alone the ukulele, gradually learning a few chords and songs, but just the first couple of examples on the Ukulele Arpeggiator website have really helped fill in another piece of the puzzle. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    s2art: Yeah, there are quite a few that are good for people just starting picking. Glad it worked for you.

Got something to say?
