    Default "Chunk" technique difficulties

    Hi Ukulele Underground,

    I am having trouble learning the "chunk" technique. I play a pineapple shaped Fluke Ukulele. My biggest problem doing the chunk is that I think that I accidentally push down and bend my top (g) string, so with the chunk I hear a faint whine (or bend) of a string. I haven't been able to fix this.

    Any tips?

    Thanks

    Does it sound bad? That sounds kind of cool to me.

    Just gotta practice having your palm mute all the strings I'd say. I kinda twist my hand down while I flick with my index then palm mute at same time.

    You can also rotate your wrist like you would opening a door knob to bias your mute to the top two or bottom two strings that can help
