Hum Song Lyrics While Playing Slowly
One of the most enjoyable things to do while playing the uke is singing your favorite songs. If you find singing and playing ukulele at the same time to be challenging then all of the tips we previously covered will benefit you greatly.
In this tip, we want to hum while playing and using a metronome so we can pace ourselves. Make sure to start with only a basic down-down strumming pattern. We then want to play a certain section of a song repeatedly while humming the song lyrics.
The reason why we will hum the song verses is that we want to get familiar with playing the uke at the same time as getting used to using our voice. Our focus is more on the strumming of chords with right timing and just barely singing–all at the same time. Lyrics wouldn’t be a concern at this point. We just want to get comfortable doing this.
If you use the strategy of using a metronome to pace yourself at a slow tempo and steadily increasing, you will see success in your progress.
