How is the ukulele held and played?
Last Updated: 02/23/2022
The uke is held up high on the chest, cradled in your strumming arm--not
resting on your knee. This positions your strumming over the
fingerboard, especially on smaller scale instruments. Finger pics are
generally not used, however, there are felt pics available specifically
for the uke.
