Now that you’ve discovered a simple but effective fingerpicking pattern in the last lesson, you’re ready to play your first fingerstyle solo!
You’ll want to make sure you’ve watched the previous lesson to get the most out of this lesson.
Today I reveal one of my favorite tricks for coming up with your own creative fingerpicking solos. I want to show you that you don’t need to be a seasoned maestro to approach fingerpicking the ukulele creatively and expressively as a solo instrument.
By practicing the technique I show you in this video you will be simultaneously improving your fingerpicking technique, fretting hand technique, and feeling the satisfaction of fingerpicking your ukulele!
I can’t wait for you to try this out, and I know a lot of you are going to take this idea and run with it to create even more solos.

“Fingerpicking Tricks has given me a lot of pleasure in learning ukulele without any of the stress and confusion that comes with learning solo. It’s because Brett gives quick answers to any questions and has laid out the course perfect for beginners like me. Before I discovered Ukulele Tricks I tried learning solo and ended up putting my ukulele down before getting anywhere. Now I have goals set and finishing a lesson gives me a great sense of achievement. It’s very rewarding and I’m very happy with my progress. I actually bought Fingerpicking Tricks as my first course because that’s the style I love. I highly recommend the course.”
