Today I want to share with you one of my favorite pieces from my new book Ukulele Expressions: Ocean Adventure. Dancing Seaweed is in the alternate tuning of Open F Minor which is fCFG# and a capo is placed on the third fret. You can view an example of the piece on my YouTube channel here.
This Etude is played with just the picking hand on open strings, just like all the pieces in the Ukulele Expressions books. There are many benefits to playing with just the picking hand including giving your fretting hand a much-needed break, focusing on the sound of the open strings, increasing speed, and improving dexterity. It’s also helpful when you just need to get out of a rut.
