First Video Lesson – Hammer-ons and Pull-offs

Here it is! I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time and I just finally took the time to put it all together. Without further ado, here is my first Live ‘Ukulele video lesson – hammer-ons and pull-offs.

Read the original lesson: Hammer-ons and Pull-offs

Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Congrats Brad. Nice job.

    One suggestion, spend a little more time showing the technique in a specific song. Some of us need concrete examples to try things out on. Like with the hammer on chords, go over the progression and slow it down for people to see, try, practice and then feel comfortable with the process.

    That’s really cool! I have a ukulele but I have never really gotten into learning how to play it really good because I also play piano and so I’ve been concentrating more on that. I would love to learn more ukulele, but I don’t have any books to learn from – does anybody have any recommendations for music books that are good for beginners?

    Live Ukulele has lessons–just click on the upper or lower tabs. You tube has lots of videos to watch and learn from. Dr Uke has lots of music and tips. And there are some good books, but the internet can get you started. Good luck! S P.S. Brad: Really liked your video presentation. It was a bit advanced for me. You might want to do a survey as to what level would be most needed, etc. Thanks!
