Basics of Ukulele Videos 1+2

Basics of Ukulele Video #1: 

Hello! Here is a link to my first video on the basics of playing the ukulele. I wish we could be learning this in person, but I’ve done my best to recreate our lessons digitally. Please note: Due to the nature of cameras, what you see me doing will be the opposite from what you are doing! Follow the directions I say when holding the ukulele and you will be good to go!

Basics of Ukulele Video #2: 

Here is the link to the second ukulele video, where we learn how to finger our first chord, C! Please note: Due to the nature of cameras, what you see me doing will be the opposite from what you are doing! Follow the directions I say when holding the ukulele and you will be good to go! I have also included a picture showing where to put your sticker on your ukulele stick or ukulele in more detail.

More Chrome Music Lab Exploration! This week, explore the Song Maker feature of Chrome Music Lab. You can create a song with a melody and a beat. To add a drum beat, click on the first two rows of dots. You can get rid of something by just clicking it again! To add a melody, click on the squares to find different notes. You can even have multiple notes playing at a time! You can change instruments around on the bottom as well as change the speed.

Here is a song that I created!

Feel free to send me songs that you make by hitting the “Save” check mark and then copy and pasting a link into an email! I hope you have fun 🙂
