Jarrod 2.10.12

Hey Jarrod thanks for letting me jam with you today. You're an amazing player already!

Keep in mind to move through your scales with W W H W W W H. You can start anywhere on the fretboard, or with any "open" string (G-C-E-A). That will allow you to play the Major Scale in any key.

Also remember to number each NOTE (like a letter) from the scale 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8, adding a CHORD (like a word) which looks like 1(maj) 2(min) 3(min) 4(maj) 5(maj) 6(min) 7(dim) 8(maj). This allows you to recognize notes and chords by sound, and will greatly improve your ability to learn songs quickly and efficiently.

For posture, remember the "shaka" idea with your thumb. Push the tip of your left thumb towards the headstock of the uke when you want to use the ring or pinkie fingers on the G or C strings.

That's it for now! Remember when you feel confused or overwhelmed: you have plenty of time to practice :) slow down, breath, and relax your feet and shoulders while you practice. 10 minutes of relaxed practice is better than 2 hours of tense practice.

Have Fun!!!
