    Default Great New Jazz Ukulele tutorials on YouTube - Brian Liu - BliuMusic

    Hello all,
    Brian Liu is a very talented ukulele player and teacher and he has just started making tutorials at his new YouTube channel, which can be found by searching YouTube for BliuMusic. He's a very modest person so I don't think he'll promote himself, but he deserves following, so I'll promote him. I first learned about him due to his collaboration with Cynthia Lin in her intermediate ukulele workshops. His methodology in explaining chord progressions/chord inversions in jazz ukulele is superb. I think anyone here who wants to learn how to play jazz ukulele will appreciate Brian's tutorials.

    Here's an example: https:www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8XBmh4AHDY&t=25s
    Watch the video and check out his PDF file, included in the video. The PDF files with the chord inversions are included in all of Brian's videos.

    I hope you'll enjoy it. There's some theory in Brian's tutorials/chord charts that is helpful.

    There's no such thing as too many ukes.

    Brian Liu found me at the right place at the right time. I've heard it before, but this time, when Brian articulated it, it sunk in. So I started learning to play chord qualities such as maj7, m7, add6, etc., using a root on each of the strings. The result was playing all over the fret board. That was a good start and I have pursued it a bit. I am currently playing around with that famous jazz progression, rhythm changes, and I can play it smoothly. I am now trying to fill in the progression with some improvised soloing.

    This is pretty cool, thanks for sharing!

    I've been working through the Ukulele Jazz book and this is a really nice addition.
