Top, inside, outside, inside. Top, inside, outside, inside.
There is nothing new under the sun. This is a common fingerstyle pattern for ukulele, as well as three finger banjo or guitar (but that’s another blog or two). It is also known as Travis picking. I am just offering a different angle at showing you how to play it.
Follow along with the video. I use a lot of repetition. YOU will use a LOT of repetition. Dozens or even hundreds of reps are not uncommon in learning a new technique or pattern or section or song. Don’t be intimidated by those numbers, though. When you practice this way results come within minutes. The more uninterrupted the reps, the faster the results, and the more badass you become. I promise.
Practice this as slowly as it takes and speed it up only when you are comfortable.
If you have questions just comment to this post. I will do my best to help you along.
Now, kick some ass…
[BTW, as promised.. here is the TAB for that Ring of Fire riff demonstrated in the video.
