‘Ukulele Strumming 101 class used the Sing-Along Songs Vol. 1 packaged set of Book/DVD/CD with 6 songs and 8 unique ‘ukulele strumming styles taught by no one else. The songs are also available by single song download and online lessons.

Thirteen students signed up for my ‘Ukulele Strumming 101 class scheduled for 3 Mondays from February 4 – 25 (not February 18) at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better on Maui. Classes were held 2-hours each Monday and used my Sing-Along Songs Vol. 1 packaged set of Book/DVD/CD with 6 songs with 8 ‘ukulele strumming styles for the curriculum. Students were introduced to my unique method for forming ‘ukulele chord shapes with minimal muscle strain and strumming styles taught by no one else.

Here are the songs we learned with number of chords and name of unique ukulele strum:

  1. America the Beautiful; 4-chords with Pick in 4 Strum.
  2. Clementine; 2-chords with Waltz: Thumb Pluck Strum and Pick in 6 Strum.
  3. Down In the Valley; 2-chords with Waltz Strums: Thumb Strum Up/Chicken Pluck.
