    Default New to the uke n need help!

    Hello, so first off im excited to be part of the ukulele underground, heard its a great site for uke players. I recently just bought my first uke (lanikai soprano) n' love it, i also bought ukulele for beginners, im really dedicated to learning how to play it n' have nothing but free time to practice only i dont have too much practicing tips, i heard something about Uncle Rod's Ukulele Boot Camp but have no idea how to access it, if anyone has any tips for me just starting out that will be great!

    Once you start learning the chords a bit better, and changing from say G to F completing a bar of each, don't stop your strumming hand to compensate the speed of changing your fingers to get the chord you are changing to. Always maintain the strumming hand and allow the left hand (if you play right handed) to learn to catch up. This will speed up your progress.

    I hope that makes sense.
