    First lesson makes sense. I’ll come back and review later today so that I don’t get ahead of myself. Your clear precise delivery of instruction and knowledge of the material makes your lessons easy to follow.

      Mahalo, Bob! See you in the next video. ;-)

  • Jeanette Sinclair Apr 17, 2021

    Sounds lovely! Looking forward to it.

  • BARRY SAVAGE Apr 18, 2021

    Hi Brad,

    I enjoyed this intro. The course sounds very intereting. I am looking forward to it. Thank You very much.

    • Brad Bordessa (Admin) Apr 18, 2021

      You’re welcome, Barry! See you in the next lesson.

    Mahalo for this course Brad ! Aloha from New-Caledonia !

    • Brad Bordessa (Admin) Apr 19, 2021

      Aloha Patrice, Mahalo for joining in the 6th fun!

    This is such a great concept. Drilling down on one interval and showing the musical possibilities. I love it. I have watched three or four lessons ahead and actually started working on this. I didn’t think I had time for a course right now but I love your stuff and I wanted to get it into my library. I guess it’s the perfect level for me because I get what you’re saying but still have to practice.

    The practice isn’t that hard (yet?) and the sound is satisfying. From what I’ve seen this concept is not overwhelming, but it’s lovely.

    The videos are short (I have a short attention span) but filled with information. They are well done.

    I just wanted to say that I like this kind of focused instruction and I hope to see more. Thank you.

      Glad you’re enjoying it, Joseph! Be in touch if you have any questions as you move through the content.

    Aloha, Steedy from the UU Forums here. This promises to be a great course and I’m looking forward to developing my 6th sense. Thanks!

    • Brad Bordessa (Admin) Apr 21, 2021

      Aloha Steedy, Mahalo for joining me here! Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Brad! I have been working on slack key pieces (taropatch tuning) with my ukulele and hope that this course will compliment the Hawaiian slack key style. Also, I look forward to noting how these 6th harmonies can be adapted to the slack key tuning.

    • Brad Bordessa (Admin) Apr 21, 2021

      Aloha Sebastian, These 6ths are a huge part of the slack key sound. You should find lots of ideas and tips in the final module. Don’t know what your definition of “slack key” uke is, but I don’t really teach adding the alternating “bass” since that’s sort of a whole ‘nother course. But if you can provide your own pedal notes to go with the 6ths, you’ll get all kinds of inspiration for your tunes!

    Hi Brad!

    Greetings from Chicago! This looks great – can’t wait to get into it. Hope you are well.

    • Brad Bordessa (Admin) Apr 21, 2021

      Anna!!!! So nice to see your name on here. Hope you’re doing well. Keep me posted on your progress!

      • anna.baluyot Apr 21, 2021

        Thanks, Brad. I certainly will!

  • dg.giacomini Apr 22, 2021

    Aloha Brad. This will probably be WAY over my head as I am more of an mid-level beginner for a while. One thing I’ve learned is that I never know where and from what level an ‘ah-ha’ moment can come from.

    • Brad Bordessa (Admin) Apr 23, 2021

      Keep me posted. I hope there’s some stuff that you can take advantage of at your level. It will grow with you!

  • marktrevis Apr 26, 2021

    Very much looking forward to playing with this course, Brad. As Sebastian said below, I’m very much interested in slack key and just starting down that road. Will be nice to add this to it as I slowly progress.

    Thanks for putting this course together!!

    • Brad Bordessa (Admin) Apr 27, 2021

      Awesome! Hope it gives you some inspiring sounds to play around with.

    Hi, I’m leaving this message here (at the beginning) in case there’s anyone out there like me who thought after a couple of lessons that maybe I’d joined the wrong course. I’ve now looked through the whole course (without doing all the practice – I’m now in the process of spending time on each element of the course) and I’d like to make a few points. One, Brad is an excellent communicator. Two, the course content and material are top quality. Three, it all gets clearer the further you get into the course!

    I class myself as an intermediate player but 6th Sense is completely new to me. I’m looking forward to being able to incorporate what I learn here into my playing. Thanks, Brad, and thanks for reading! Phil

    • Brad Bordessa (Admin) Apr 28, 2021

      You’re welcome. Glad to hear it, Phil! And thanks for making the effort to share this with new folks.
