I’m excited to announce the third book in the Ukulele Expressions series is now available! Ukulele Expressions: Low G Animals in Art is full of music just for the picking hand, along with paintings of amazing animals. This music was composed specifically for Low G ukulele and features alternate tunings that provide a diverse set of melodies. You will also use a capo on some of the pieces.
The Ukulele Expressions series began in 2021. I was still new to the ukulele but was having trouble with carpal tunnel in my fretting hand. I would even have surgery eventually. But I didn’t want to stop playing my ukulele. I searched for music to play with just one hand and I couldn’t find any! That is when I set out to create my own, using alternate tunings for some of the pieces in order to get a range of melodies. Adding a capo changed the pitch on some of the pieces as well. I combined the Etudes with paintings of nature I created and this gave me a rich playing experience as I imagined each place. I wanted to publish the book so others could benefit from this music just for the picking hand, too.
This book focuses on the Low G ukulele with its deep and rich bass sounds. Ten expressive, acrylic paintings of amazing animals have been included that I created. I like to think of each one as I play the corresponding musical piece. What do they sound like? What are they doing? What do they represent?
Take a walk on the wild side and start playing today!
