  1. Hey, how you doing?
    Justin here today!
  2. We are going to be looking
    at some more ukulele.
  3. We're gonna have a look
    at the 2 and 4 hit rhythm,
  4. really cool little groove. (♪)
  5. Now the cool thing with
    the ukelele is it is
  6. it's own kind
    of whole orchestra
  7. You're not usually playing
    a ukelele as part of a band
  8. although it's definitely very possible,
  9. much more common is for
    people to be playing on their own.
  10. So, if you've been working a little bit,
  11. on your strumming and
    you're confident
  12. with your down and up strumming,
  13. and you're staying in time,
  14. this is a really really cool little trick
  15. to get under your fingers.
  16. Basically a drummer, when
    they're playing,plays a kick drum
  17. the big fat drum, on beats 1 and 3
  18. and they play the snare drum, which is
  19. a really loud one on beats 2 and 4
  20. excuse my terrible beatboxing,
    but it kinda like:
  21. and it's this 'ka' sound
    that is the...
  22. Called the back-beat.
    Happens on beat 2 and 4 - Okay?
  23. So, if we introduce that idea of playing
  24. a little accented hit on beats 2 and 4,
    gives you a little bit more groove.
  25. So, if I'm just playing regular (♪)
  26. and then I add the back-beating
  27. It's just like-"Oh yeah, it's
    moving along a little better!"
  28. it's kinda introducing a rhythmic element
  29. if I can learn to talk today.
  30. So, what do we do?
  31. So, normally we're playing
  32. down-up-down-up
  33. 1 and 2, and on that beat 2
  34. What we're gonna do is: mute a little bit
    with the palm of our hand
  35. On the strings..
    and give it a little strum.
  36. So, I'd recommend doing this without
    any chord at all
  37. to make sure that you're doing it right.
    Just going: 1-and-2.
  38. Just try that. So, down-up,
    and then let your hand fall down
  39. and let your finger hit the strings
    after your hand has already hit the mute.
  40. So, 1-and-2-1-and-2.
    Start-off with that!
  41. Then try and get: 1-and-2-and-3-and-4-and
  42. Now the reason for not using a chord is it's
    very tempting to use your fingers to mute the strings.
  43. Which is another way of doing it...
    It's just not as good.
  44. Okay, so not holding your chord down,
    see if you can get that little muted hit.
  45. It will take some practice, it's
    not something that you're likely to go
  46. "Oh yeah, I can do it!"
    - perfect straight away
  47. or maybe you can, which would be great.
    But what you want to work on is
  48. getting that hand to sit down on the
    string and you're strumming just behind.
  49. I think this is almost certainly gonna be
    cool for a close-up.
  50. So let's just look at this muted hit again.
    So we've got the palm of the hand
  51. That's gonna touch the strings and then
    you're gonna strum in front of it
  52. So it's already muted. If it wasn't there:
  53. So it's just using the heal of your hand
    just to rest on the strings.
  54. So there's nothing coming out.
    And then going through:
  55. 1-and-2. So try and get that hit.
  56. Just try to get that first,
    so you can get your nice muted click.
  57. Then try and lock it into the whole groove.
    So: 1-and-2-and-3-and-4-and
  58. 1-and-2-and-3-and-4
  59. and 1-and-2-and-3-and-4
  60. Now you'll notice there as well I'm
    starting to put the shuffle.
  61. Okay? So it's not just straight.
    Straight would be:
  62. Wth the shuffle:
  63. Both of those are pretty useful. But (♪)
    that little kind of shuffle with the mute:
  64. Is definitely where it's at.
  65. For nearly everyone, this kind of strumming
    pattern takes a little practice.
  66. Takes a while to get used to
    the technique.
  67. Which is something that you wanna work on
    separately- right?
  68. Just, you know, literally working on doing
    that and then doing the 1-and-2 thing.
  69. You know, just making sure that you kinda
    get that under your fingers first
  70. before you try and lock into
    the whole groove.
  71. Okay? Really big deal. Just learning
    things one-step at a time and
  72. definitely, definitely don't be trying to
    change chords while you're learning this.
  73. Okay? Either do it with no chords at all,
    or just pick a simple chord like C or G,
  74. or whatever, whatever chord you really
    feel comfy with and just stay on that
  75. one chord while you get the rhythm.
    Then once you've got the rhythm,
  76. maybe try changing just between 2 chords (♪)
  77. And if you've got 2 or 3 chords,
    and you can start to mix them up,
  78. you'll find that it's properly under your
    fingers and you can apply it to
  79. any tune you want. So, have a bit of fun
    with that, 2-and-4 hit strumming,
  80. I will see you for plenty more lessons
    on uke and guitar and maybe something else
  81. sometime in the future too.
    Take care of yourselves! Bye-bye!
