Hey UUers! January's episode of Uke Lessons is here:

Uke Lesson 25 - Change The World (http://ukuleleunderground.com/2010/01/02/uke-lesson-25-change-the-world/)

I know a lot of you aren't big fans of the E chord (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?12703-The-E-Chord-Is-there-an-alternative), but if you ever needed a reason to learn it well, this song might just be it! Keep in mind that Aldrine's chord fingerings aren't the only way to hold each chord, so experiment with what feels most comfortable for you to hold and change chords with. This song has quick changes, so if you're getting hung up on any particular chord change, practice the changing movement over and over again and soon your muscles will move from one chord to the next automatically!

If you have any other questions, comments, ideas, suggestions, praise for Eric Clapton (or tsud123), thoughts about the ukulele's greater impact on pop music - post them all below! Happy New Year, everyone!

I like this lesson, so far the first using an improvising technique and some fancy barré variations.
The e-chord shape variation is the best finger workout i've seen,

I'm also impressed about the advanced usage of the graphical finger picking animations - i've learned the whole picking part in some minutes instead of hours,

Quick question: Which uke minute covers the e blues scale?

Thanks like always!

Looks like he made the video using his Tenor Applause (but I'm pretty sure he did the audio using his new Kanilea :D)
