This informative and entertaining tutorial will teach you a myriad of fingerpicking and chording techniques. Del Rey takes a guitar player's approach to the instrument, using her three fingers to get syncopated melody and harmony lines against a steady thumb beat. She teaches you how to play cool riffs, turnarounds, blues songs and up-beat dance tunes.

Tuning her uke to open C (G-C-E-A), she starts off with blues scales and right hand exercises to coordinate your picking and fretting hands. Then it's right into five fabulous pieces in a variety of keys: Goin' Up The Country (Barbeque Bob), Run and Tell Your Daddy, Lord and Keep It Clean (Charlie Jordan), Dance Hall Shuffle (Clifford Hayes) and Brown's Blues (Matt Weiner).

This program is available for viewing either with a Roots Channel subscription or as a standalone purchase.
