Sometimes It Takes A While . . .
From Clif Brittain on April 6, 2019. As many of you know, Clif is a Twin Cities Ukulele Club frequent jammer. He said,
I’ve been working almost daily on scales and chord families in A, C, D, F, G and once in a while, Bb, and Eb.
Last week I got a little bored and went into the Ukulele for Dummies, Chapter 6, which is the movable chords chapter.
After a few days of this, a light came on. All of the chord families I’d been working on with open strings are available with movable chords! If I can get my fingers to remember the shapes, playing in different keys should be easy. Well, easier.
Then another light came on. The [Mike Cramer BUZZ group lessons], which seemed so unreachable at the time, should be revisited. Fingerings I thought so strange and impossible then are accessible now!
And the blues scale made so much more sense as a result of all the major scale work I’d done!
Material that I’d thought was pretty much wasted on me was just percolating through the gray cells, accumulating interest.
Now if I could only get the fingers to do what they’re told, I might start making some music!
I want to thank you again for all the helpful advice and encouragement you’ve given me. Who’d a thunk four strings could be so much fun?
Why play ukulele? Because . . .
