Let’s learn how to strum in a reggae style (on beats 2 and 4) while also learning how to play The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars. I decided to teach this song here on the channel because it’s easy and it is a crowd pleaser. Most people know the words to this song, so you’ll definitely get a reaction if you play it/practice it around people. This is the easy version of the song. This tutorial comes with access to a printable resource, which you will find here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/33511017
This tutorial is extra special because I’m playing the solid Nova that Enya will be releasing later this year. At one point in the video I even turn on the effects so that you can hear what the ukulele sounds like! (It sounds amplified, even though it is not hooked up to an amp). This ukulele comes in a tenor size and in colors pink, blue, and dark brown (wood).
Make sure to join our facebook group, Ukelandia, if you want to share a cover of this song or if you want to connect with other uku players from our community. It’s pretty fun over there too! https://www.facebook.com/groups/2460946980897979/
