Strumming help

  1. 4 years ago

    Hello all!

    I got a ukulele for Christmas and have only been playing for a month. Where has this been all my life?!? I'm having some issues finding a good way to strum, looking on different websites it seems there's a few different ways. Such as holding your non-strumming fingers straight out, using a claw and multiple fingers to strum. My problem is that my finger seems to catch on the top string on the downstroke, and the bottom strung on the upstroke. This makes learning to chunk very difficult!

    Any thoughts on good technique would be greatly appreciated!

    Uke on!

    hope it helps!
