Good ukulele technique involves a BALANCED application of left and right hand issues. Since the left hand has only one major application, holding chords, as opposed to the right hand having 5 major responsibilities (melody, harmony, rhythm, tempo, dynamics), achieving left/right balance is the major step required to maximize music's return.
Many ukulele folk, in their practice, focus on holding chords most often at the expense of addressing right hand technique. So major adjustments in practice regimen are warranted.
In the course of the workshop, we'll dissect each of the 5 right hand issues and suggest practice techniques to create needed balance.
