Ukulele Warm-Ups to do EVERY DAY! (Strumming and Fingerpicking)

Hello! Today we doing some warm-ups! Many of you have told me that you don't know what to do for daily practice, so I decided to make a practice video you can revisit daily.

The lesson portion of the video begins at 0:34 and the daily practice begins at 5:56 

In this warm-up video we are doing the following:

  • 12 Bar blues chord progression
  • Fingerpicking pattern 4-3-2-1
  • Fingerpicking pattern 4-3-21-3 
  • Island strum
  • Island strum with a chuck
  • Left hand muting
All in all, the purpose of this warm-up is to get you picking, strumming, and to improve your playing. The more you do this, the more you will grow in your practice.

I have a master's degree in curriculum design. I use my educational background to make exclusive educational content for Patrons. They also get ukulele photos to print and frame as well as ukulele ringtones. Patrons also get to see videos before they are released to the public. 


Some people want to support me through their donations. If you follow the link below, you can make a donation to my PayPal account. This helps me out a lot!  


Our facebook group is a great place to connect with other people around the world who play ukulele. People in our facebook group like to share videos of their progress, ask questions, share pictures of their ukuleles, and share the occasional bad pun. We would love to connect with you there!  


This is my instagram account. I like to share play-along videos, collaborations, and share tidbits of my daily life. It's a lot more personal than the YouTube channel, so it's a great place to bond.   



This is a playlist link to the first challenge. This one is for absolute beginners. You can review the challenge if you need to and/or you can share this link with someone to help get them into our ukulele family ;) This challenge also has a free printable resource and the hashtag we used throughout social media is #30DayUkeChallenge  


The 30 Day Uke Course is a challenge for intermediate ukulele players. Make sure you have mastered E chord (or are ready to master it) for this challenge.
