It’s my pleasure to announce that Ukulele Expressions – Illustrated Ukulele Fingerstyle Etudes for the Picking Hand is now available on Amazon. I was one of many people who picked up a new hobby in 2020, but as that hobby brought on new problems (Carpal tunnel), I learned to express myself in new ways. I wrote these ten musical pieces in standard and alternate tuning and also used a capo on a few to get the most diverse sounds from my ukulele. The expressive ink paintings were created in response to the music as I imagined places in nature when I heard each note ring out. I truly hope you enjoy the lively art and enjoy playing these beautiful pieces while increasing your own fingerpicking skills.
