    Thank you

    Not easy, but feasible with practice. I trust them to be good exercises to practice picking and coordination. You can check some demo tabs by following the links from here: https://www.choan.es/en/50-miniature...s-for-ukulele/

    I don't know. I haven't played any of them yet.

    Default Study No. 32 - Broken

    Sometimes one feels incomplete, or broken, but still keeps a kind of happiness inside. In this piece I'm alternating time signatures –breaking the rhythm– while keeping the general feel bright and happy.

    Default Study No. 33 - Medium Rare, Please

    Today's study features alternating thumb strokes, swing, split strums, staccato, an amazing obstinato, harmonics, and… THE LICK.

    Thanks for sharing these links Choan, I have started to practice "Salt del Grill" & "Drama-In-The-Box", they are tricky for me, but I believe they are achievable with some steady practice, thanks again for sharing your fine work!

    Thank you, these are most enjoyable.
    Reminds me of Sam Muir, who I dearly love listening to!

    Oh, I forgot to mention how helpful the finger positions listed in the transcriptions are for the fretting hand, this really speeds up the learning process, thanks Choan

    Thanks for telling! One never knows how much information is useful on the tabs before becoming noise. I'm glad you're enjoying these little pieces of mine.
