|Have you hugged your UKE today??!?|
We have been learning to play a few chords since the beginning of the school year. The last two years, my students have been picking up the chords as I teach them, much more rapidly, due to my "chords by dot" instruction. I have placed small colored dots that can be found easily at office supply stores, on the frets for each chord. Then, when I teach C, for instance, I say, ring finger on the yellow dot. This really helps all students find the correct fret, especially helping visual learners.
