Ukulele Strummers [Clint Fisher]

You can spend hours finding great stuff on Clint's Ukulele Strummer's site by going directly into his site. It would be the best way to get all of the good stuff here...
But you can choose to read below and see a portion of the work that has been offered. It's a resourse that I found quite a long time ago. I searched all over his site since he said that he hid some wahine photos somewhere, but I never found them. Clint has spent quite a bit of time on this site and I am going to re-explore some of it again here....

The Ukulele Fretboard:

  • Shows the notes up to the 12th fret of the soprano fretboard
  • Enharmonic Tones (A# = Bb, etc.)
  • Creating Chords (Basic Information)
  • Muscle Memory (This is a key piece of information for every beginner!)

First Position Chords:

Ukulele Strummers Songbook:

A tidbit of Clint Fisher Ukulele Philosophy:

"...If you take the time to learn about the instrument itself, how it works, how you need to caress it to allow it to "sing" the sound you're looking for, how you need to have patience with yourself as you learn about the Ukulele, you will improve quicker than you think."

"Play what you want to play, sing what you want to sing, strum how you want to strum, pick what you want to pick. Never be afraid to play in front of people and never say you're sorry for mistakes you play along the way. Have fun with it, or put it away."

"Just have fun making beautiful music. In the big picture, that's really what it's all about, right?"
