Aloha Puapua ʻohana!
This week, we're going to take a look at a technique that everyone wants to learn, but can seem complicated when you attempt it - the coveted scratch. Also known as the chunk/chuck thanks to Aldrine Guerrero over at ʻUkulele Underground, Kāʻili takes a step back and shows us how to mute the strings properly with the strumming hand first.
Practice each technique separately and in order (mute first, then scratch). This will help to set the foundation for future techniques and strumming patterns, as well as give you another way to feel the music you'll be playing and to have fun with it!
