Ukulele Chunking  With Your Left Hand

A Little Info About This Lesson

In our previous lesson, you learned how to chuck and strum by muting the string with the palm on your right hand. This time, we’ll do the chunking on the left hand.

You see, the right-hand muting is great for downstrokes but not so great on upstrokes. That’s where the left hand comes in.

Alright, let’s do it!

Today, we’re going to focus on the left hand and how it will get things to work. This method will let you play without interrupting your right hand from strumming. This is very important when you start to get wider strumming patterns or if you want to produce better projections when you play.

In the video below, you’ll learn a simple trick on how to mute the strings using the pinky finger on your left hand and more techniques to get the left-hand muting easier to pull off.
