We're in the midst of a ukulele renaissance and this wonderful little instrument's role has been expanding to include a wide variety of musical genres.
In the hands of the amazing Del Rey it becomes a veritable blues and ragtime music machine!
This informative and entertaining DVD will teach you a myriad of fingerpicking and chording techniques. Del takes a guitar player's approach to the instrument, using her three fingers to get a syncopated melody and harmony lines against a steady thumb beat.
She teaches you how to play cool riffs, turnarounds, blues songs and up-beat dance tunes.
Tuning her uke to open C (G-C-E-A), she starts off with blues scales and right hand exercises to coordinate your picking and fretting hands.
Then it's right into five fabulous pieces in a variety of keys: Goin' Up the Country; Run and Tell Your Daddy, Lord; Keep it Clean; Dance Hall Shuffle and Brown's Blues.
