This Ukulele Video Lessons will teach you another way that you can do hammers and pulloffs. This is something that a lot of people are using on guitars and on ukuleles and makes a really neat sound. This type of picking uses the top string on the ukulele to create a fuller sound. This can be incorporated also into doing the scales to give you some practice with this technique.
Starting on the eighth fret, you are going to pluck the G string, then pull on the A string, then pluck the G string again. Then you go to the seventh fret, pluck the G string, then pull on the A string, then pluck the G string again. Move up to the fifth, you do the same thing. Pluck the G string, then pull back on the A string, then pluck the G string again. Then move up to the third fret and do the same thing.
You can continue doing this up and down to get the practice. After you become more comfortable with the chord scales, you will find that this is something that you can incorporate into those scales and make them sound really cool. Don't get discouraged if you can only do it slowly at first. This takes a lot of practice to perfect and you will find that you will get faster with each time that you do it.
You will find that there are a lot of different ways that you can use this technique to spiff up everything that you do on ukuleles. It's something that can make your scales and your practice times more exciting and something that is going to make people look at you and listen to you when you are playing your ukulele. Hammers and pulloffs are something that take a lot of practice, but once they are perfected they are something that makes playing the ukulele fun.Return to Home Page
