Clawhammer ukulele? Try lesson 1 by Aaron Keim

A few uke players sometimes play clawhammer style. Aaron Keim, AKA "The Quiet American" is one of them ... are you in the UK? You want to see him live? He'll be at the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival in Huddersfield, England - 22nd to the 24th May this year, 2015. And he will be doing a workshop on fingerpicking - NB, fingerpicking, NOT clawhammer.... anyways, I've got my ticket, booked my workshops, including this one.

Better be quick if you get in on it - there are not many tickets left, and workshops have begun to sell out!

Thanks for dropping in... I'm getting back to my practice now!


  1. it always makes my day to read your blog. It also makes me wistful and wishing I lived across the pond. So many great Uke events! Looking forward to hearing about your Uke lessons. If no one has ever told you this before, you have a real knack for writing. Thanks for sharing. Oh, and last photo you shared from some event, I swear you are Judi Dench's doppelganger!
    Cheers to strumming!

    1. MD, Thank you so much for your kind remarks! It's always gratifying to hear when someone has enjoyed reading my little offerings! We are very lucky to have so many uke events here now, you are so right! And next week it will be GFS at Blackpool again!
