ABOUT THIS UKE
Gloss Kala Tenor

Do I need nails for this to work? Yes and no.
If you have nails, your strings will sound louder. If you don't have long nails, your strings will sound softer. The muscle memory for this, however, is the same for both long nails and short nails. If you want to grow strong, healthy nails, I recommend you use jojoba oil on your cuticles (daily)
How long should I practice? 5 minutes 4 times a day.
Why not just practice 20 minutes? I find that my students retain information and build muscle memory much better when we practice more often in shorter spans of time! Practice every day until I release the next video.
If you master this, record yourself, post it on YouTube and leave me a comment below letting me know!
ABOUT THIS SONG
"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is a popular English lullaby. The lyrics are from an early 19th-century English poem by Jane Taylor, "The Star". The poem, which is in couplet form, was first published in 1806 in Rhymes for the Nursery, a collection of poems by Taylor and her sister Ann. It is sung to the tune of the French melody Ah! vous dirai-je, maman, which was published in 1761 and later arranged by several composers including Mozart with Twelve Variations on "Ah vous dirai-je, Maman". The English lyrics have five stanzas, although only the first is widely known.
