How to Play Ukulele (for Guitar Players)

Hey shredders! Today I wanted to show you how easy it is to play ukulele if you have even just a little bit of guitar playin’ skillz. I picked a ukulele up a while back and was instantly applying the same principles to play full songs. All you have to do is memorize a different set of chords!

In this video, I show you how to play a bit of Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison. The chords I use are G C G D (in order).  Check out the chords and strum pattern below and have a blasty blast..  island style!

Your Guitar Teacher Rips the Roof Off House of Blues Anaheim!!

Hey guys, just wanted to show you a little piece of “practicing what you preach!” In this video, I am playing the minor blues scale in the key of A. In the guitar battle at the end, I play pattern 1 for the first solo piece, then the 4th pattern for the 2nd solo piece. Finally, I transition the band into the outro via a series of pull offs all the way down on the 2nd fret from the G string to the D string. As you can see, I am a big fan of legato style.
