Even on the guitar there are different types of strumming, palm muting, with a pick, flamenco style strums. You CAN strum a ukulele like a guitar (even using a pick) but that doesn’t mean you necessarily want to.

There is a more distinct style of strumming on the ukulele. Put your hand so it rests around the sound hole of the ukulele, point (with one finger only) towards your chest and then pivot from your wrist so your finger moves (passing over the strings) to point towards your feet. Then move it so it points back towards your chest.

This is a more traditional style strum, but you can also strum with your thumb, use both your pointer and thumb or even create a flamenco role by using every finger.

What do you want to see here?

I’ve been really amazed at the people who have been following this humble little site, liking and reblogging different images and generally loving the Ukulele. Thank you.

I’d love to know what sort of things you’d like to see more of (and anything you’d like to see less of). That includes things you’d like me to show off to other people.
That also means you an ask me any question you have about the Ukulele and I’ll do my best to answer it.

So send me a message and let’s see what happened.
Thanks once again.
