Warmups & Such Booklet

I’ve made this booklet “Warmups & Such” that you can print out. I think it will be really handy for warming up your fingers before a play. It includes:

  • Simple scales (pentatonic / major / minor)
  • Strumming patterns
  • Chords (Power chords / major & minor barre chords)
  • Changing keys
  • Fingerpicking patterns

I made a Youtube video (above) of how to print and make the book, then how to practice with it. Click here to download the .pdf.

Another one of my dad’s favourites – Catch The Wind by Donovan. There is some beautiful and subtle picking in this song.

New Toys

Things are happening again! I have my new toy – the Zoom Q8, and I’ve already released some videos using it. I love it because you can hear the sounds of Western Australia’s nature. I can’t wait to do some recordings at the beach, maybe do some sunrise episodes. Really exciting!

I was only able to afford it because some people were really kind enough to donate, and to those few people, thank you times a million.

My next project is: A Pogues Songbook – it’s about 90% complete, includes 22 of The Pogues greatest songs, complete with tabs for the solos and melodies. I also want to do a whole Youtube section where each song has a link to a lesson.

After that, I’ve also created a Uke By The Glass Songbooklet, and I’ll be starting those classes soon. The booklet will be available for download soon. That has 17 songs, all with a difficulty rating on them, so you can start with the easiest if you’re a beginner.
