Want a Better Rhythm Hand? ... listen to the drummer ... It's all there.

I tell my ukulele students if you want to develop a better rhythm hand you have to start listening to the drummer, start thinking like a drummer.
Drummers are telling you what the strumming pattern is, where the fills go, what beats to accent, it's all there just listen.
Just because you aren't the drummer doesn't meant you don't have to count.
And I leave you with this quote from perhaps the greatest rhythm hand in the business KEEF ... “Drums, eh,” says Keith Richards. “Without it you’re kinda nowhere'

  1. Hi there,

    We are in the process of updating our Uke Clubs page and would love to add the Northern Ukuleles so we can keep others up to date on uke happenings and share your events. This is the page in question:

    If you’re interested, all we’d need from you is a MeetUp ID and we can add you. If you don’t have a MeetUp already, it’s very easy to join.

    Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
