Fingerstyle ukulele videos and tutorials

21 2010

Today I’d like to take a look at the latest fingerstyle videos and include some useful fingerpicking tutorials.

First a really lovely ukulele duo performed by Herman Vandecauter and one of his students. The piece, arranged by Herman, is called Le Rossignol (The Nightingale) and shows how good a teacher he is!

Relax and enjoy this beautiful piece of Renaissance music. If you’d like to learn to play along, Herman has posted the tabs of the first part here.

Next comes some Celtic ukulele with Lord of the Dance performed by Valéry Sauvage and arranged by Ken Middleton.

And now for the tutorials :

This tutorial by Mark Gordon teaches one type of fingerpicking used in classical music and explains the difference between low and high G.

For a basic fingerpicking pattern, check this tutorial by music teacher Ukulele Mike.

And for more advanced patterns, this video by Hawaii Music Supply should be of help :

And if you haven’t seen them yet, check Herman‘s explanations on the Rasgueado technique
