50 Miniature Studies for Ukulele

Published on January 19, 2019

I’m currently working in the serial publication of a set of 50 short studies for ukulele, less than one minute long each, titled 50 Miniature Studies for Ukulele.

I started the project in February and its publication on video will be completed by the end of July, 2019.

This collection compiles pieces created to develop diverse musical performance abilities and fingerpicking techniques: arpeggios, campanella, alternate thumb

On Wednesday and Friday each week I release a new video. You can enjoy them through YouTube (subscribe to my channel), Instagram, and Facebook.

Along with each video, I publish its tablature –and some brief notes on the performance– on Patreon.

Patreon is a service that allows people to directly support musicians and artists.

By becoming a patron –that’s the price of a coffee, a breakfast or a gin and tonic per month, depending on the tier you opt in– you’ll get access to:

  • The score & tablature for each study, available as a downloadable & printable PDF;

  • A private post with comments and notes about the performance of each piece;

  • A downloadable .mp3 + the possibility of following the project via any Podcast app;

  • Live lessons;

  • An other goodies, such as discounts for the digital albums I publish on Bandcamp.

These are the benefits available for each tier.

Demo tabs

Some fellow ukelelists have shared my tabs on the website to contribute to spreading the project:

The album

After the release of the videos, I’ll enter the recording study to work on an album that will include all 50 pieces. That’ll get published as a digital edition, including a PDF book of tablatures, via Bandcamp. I expect to get it finished and published mid September.

Become a patron –with monthly contributions from just 3 USD– and get access to the tablatures, performance notes and other benefits I offer via Patreon.
