Come Explore Percussive Strums with Me!

For 100 Days of Ukulele 2021 I broke my time up into ten 10-day "units" of practicing specific skills. Today I got a message requesting I share my videos on Percussive Strumming, one of my 10-day units. I thought it would be good to collect these links here on my site as well.

I didn't really make these as tutorials, but between the videos and the descriptions you'll probably be able to pick up some percussive strums to try. Click through to view them on Instagram in order to read more (in the video description) about how the strums work, as well as to find out who taught me these strums so that you can navigate to their instructional videos.

Let me know if you find these useful!
