In Sunday's Bob Brozman class he spoke a few times about Ledward so I am placing these videos here for further review. His strumming is very much like what I have seen Hiram Bell do. The last video of Bob Brozman and Ledward has some hand details of some very sweet 2-string melodies. Our local good friend, Steven Strauss also uses these melodies in an entirely different way to create a soft subtle ukulele sound. Be sure to watch the last video carefully. Bob recommend that I record myself strumming a 5-minute loop of C, F, G7 and them playing around with the two string melodies and play and listen carefully. He said that humans have a great sense of when something sounds correct, "trust your ears", says Bob. Steven Strauss led me to that trough a couple of years ago - perhaps I'm ready now.
