Practice the new I and V closed chord shapes (pgs 51 and 59) in various keys by playing (by ear) the following 2 chords songs.
Banana Boat Song (Day Oh)
Down In the Valley
Rocka My Soul
He's Got the Whole World in His Hands
Some more tips:
*Don't Press too hard: Just practice making the shapes without pressing or strumming at all
*Try changing the position of your thumb: move and point it a bit more toward the head of your uke.
*Don't change chords too soon: Stay on it until you are HAVE TO to change.
*It's OK to make a mistake.
*It's OK if your barre chords don't sound very good at this point.
*Think about what you can do now that you couldn't do a year ago!
Also practice Jeu Jeu with flatpicks and tremelo strum. Great work on that. We'll play it again next week.
AND Nu's O Ka Palai (pg 61)- Listen to this song, pay attention the rhythm and work towards a full warm sound. Practice both Use I and II
