Uke Players:  Stop struggling with your ukulele strumming

Here's the simplest, funnest way to get better fast.

How about a simple SYSTEM to instantly improve your uke strumming technique (without memorizing strum patterns)?

Imagine the feeling of knowing you can play any song, any style, and time. Without worrying about "strum patterns." What if you could just KNOW it, and just PLAY it?

Lots of uke players learn the very basics of strumming and never move beyond. 

But all you need is to stop memorizing and start learning!

I'm ukulele teacher, Danno Sullivan  and I’ve just re-released my most popular ukulele learning program, the Ukulele Strum Mastery course.  (Sounds impressive, don’t it?).

It’s an online training program of quick, short, fun videos where you’ll learn my clear and simple system for truly mastering ukulele strumming. 

  • Do you ever ask, "What's the strum pattern for this song?"
  • Do your eyes glaze over when you see a strum pattern like DDUUDUDU U U U DU ?  (They should...)
  • Do you ever just not play songs because you don't "know the strum pattern"?
  • Do you struggle keeping your strumming smooth, steady, and consistent?
  • What about strumming and singing (at the same time)
  • Or, changing chords smoothly while keeping the strum going?
With a solid system in place, you can face down any song, and strum, and have it crying for mercy.

Now when I say "system," I mean it!

The system is two core concepts (plus lots of bonuses!):

“The Vital Element,” which is my SYSTEM to help you understand the underlying logic of ALL strum patterns—so you’ll never have to memorize again.

“Say It and Play It,” teaches you to recognize sounds from songs (from radio, records, bands—not just ukulele!), and translate those sounds into the perfect, correct strum on you uke.

Using the combined system, you will KNOW how to strum any song, any style--without having to look anything up. You can just PLAY IT!

Why a course specifically on ukulele strumming?  Isn't that oddly specific?

Well, I’ve been teaching people to play ukulele, online and off for years, and I know the questions are 99% about strumming!

Here's a quick video from the course that tells why:

So What Am I Getting Exactly?

The course is all video,  all online. 

  • Module 1 teaches you my core philosophy about uke strumming. You'll learn the "Vital Element" and "Say It & Play It," the twin engines that power this simple method. Understand these and you'll be able to instantly play any strum pattern, any strum style, for any song that want to play.
  • Module 2 is a complete walk-through of a baker's dozen strum patterns--yes, the very ones I say you don't need! But once you see them analyzed, you'll understand that know what pre-built patterns exist, you can apply them to your own free-form Module-1 style strums. You're basically conquering the strumming problem from both ends, combining depth of of knowledge with wisdom.
  • Bonus Module 3 is packed with extra tidbits that can have a huge impact on your strumming. Think Like a Drummer helps you add variety to your strumming, while other videos cover strumming and singing, smoothing out chord transitions and several other important concepts.
  • Left-hand Muting is also covered in Module 3. This technique alone multiplies the numbers of strums you can do by the power of eight (the number of beats where you can apply the mute). 
  • Specific Strum Styles are covered here, too. You'll learn the Beach Boys Boogie, Formby Split-Stroke (that wild, fast, 1930s sound), as well as an introduction to Clawhammer strumming, for that "O, Brother, Where Art Thy Ukulele" sound.
  • Bonus Module 4 is all about the songs, 'bout the songs, 'bout the songs. We walk through 15 songs in a multitude of styles, break them apart to analyze the strumming. This analysis helps you understand what makes the song "sound like the song," and how you can get that sound yourself.

This is years of strumming knowledge wrapped into the tightest package possible.

Danno, I love this, thank you! I am progressing slowly through the first unit, due to lots of other duties and pleasures, but what a joy this is, to begin to feel a bit more confident--thank you for this, too. I tried one of the strums you taught, in my recent uke group meeting, and the sound was so strong and clear and vigorous that it surprised me into momentary silence.
