Check out this ukulele video lessons on chord bending. When
you are playing ukulele for a while, chances are that you will want to start
adding a few new techniques to your playing style. It is only natural. One of

it is a great way to add a new sound to your favorite songs. This helps to give
you a unique style, which can help you stand out as a player. While you might
not want to use it all of the time, it is good to know. It works well for many
different styles of music, including country, rock, and the blues.
What do you need to do? Is it difficult? I can hear the questions swirling in your mind. Fortunately, as you will see from the lesson, it is actually fairly simple to do. The only thing you really need to do is apply pressure for your chord as you normally would and then pull the strings upward – not sliding, you stay on the same fret – to get the chord to bend and create a different sound.
A good way to practice this is to start with chords on the fifth fret of the E string (for the G scale) or the third fret on the E string (for the F scale). Of course, you are able to do this on any string or fret. When you do this, you will hear the difference immediately. It has almost a twanging sound to it, and that might remind you of country music. They do this with guitars often in that genre. It’s a fun sound, and it might surprise you how well it can work in a number of different songs. This lesson for chord bending will show you just what you need to do.
You can incorporate this technique into all sorts of songs, and it is quite fun to play around with some songs that you think might not fit well with it just to see what it sounds like. It might surprise you. Watch the ukulele video lesson for chord bending and get started. You don’t have to worry about damaging your strings, as it doesn’t have any negative side effects on the instrument. Keep practicing, and soon you will be bending all sorts of chords for some great sounds.Return to Home Page
