Anyone have any special runs/quick scales/fancy pull off-slides that they use to show off on the uke. My skills have progressed to the point where I'm able to pick up songs very quickly, and I'm looking for something to SPICE it up.

:drool:

Personally I've been doing a little Hendrix themed chord-riff lately,

0235-slide-0457-slide-0235-slide-0013, using your own flare when it comes to strum count. then follow that with some bluesy lick.

Anything is appreciated I'm just trying to spice up my playing.

Been practicing my triplets. As I get better, I can just play them here and there in song, for flair, change timing, etc. Just had to practice slowly, and build up speed gradually. I often practice in front of the tv, during commercials or parts Idon't like by muting the strings and just practicing the strum. Can get in lot of extra practice that way.
