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 that I’ve never broken down publicly the way I am going to now 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.

How to Get Early Access to Fingerpicking Tricks and Guarantee Your Spot
Unfortunately I can only work with a handful of students at a time. Unlike some of my other courses, I limit Fingerpicking Tricks registration to provide the best support and experience for my students. Some of my past programs have sold out in as less than a day.
When enrollment opens, you need to sign up as soon as you see it, because spots tend to sell out very fast. One reason I’ve created an early-bird waitlist is so you can get access before the public. But to secure your spot you need to act immediately when you get an email from me.
Here’s how to make sure you get in:
- Open your email inbox on Sunday, October 30, 2022 at 1:00 PM EST
- Refresh your inbox until you get an email from me
- Open the email and click on the secret early-bird registration link inside the email to join the class
- Secure your spot in the class immediately
It’s likely there will be a rush to the registration page on Sunday since there are so many people on the early-bird waiting list. Show up on time on Sunday and follow the instructions above to make sure you get a spot.
“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.”
