Finger Style Music Reading

Silent Night Ukulele Fingerpicking

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Chord Mania! In this lesson, I will explain how I have arranged the classic song “Silent Night” into a fingerpicking “masterpiece.” It differs from most other ukulele tutorials that have been classified as easy. This is definitely NOT an easy tutorial. As most ukulele tutorials seem easy they appeal to a large number of beginning ukulele players. But, since I am a technician, I will hold you to a high standard. I have tried to create a piece of music that will not only challenge you but also help you learn new techniques. You need to focus and work hard and you will be able to learn it. Once you master this piece, you will have fun playing it and impressing your friends and family! I use continuous right-hand fingerpicking pattern (plenty of backward rolls), ‘hip’ chord shapes, double stops, and some harp harmonics for this arrangement.
