Reggae ‘Ukulele Strum

The latest ‘ukulele lesson video from Maui’s hippest dorm (well… maybe not…) – How to Play a Reggae strum on the ‘Ukulele!

The pattern looks like this:

|1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
|- - D U - - D U |

Or you can omit the up strum. I forgot to mention that in the video. There are many, many reggae songs that skank only on the 2 and 4. The up strum on the “and” is more of a Jawaiian thing.

|1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
|- - D - - - D - |

And for laughs:

BRAH!

If you’ve ever been to a reggae concert you can relate.
