Get the TABS, Access the On-Screen TAB Viewer, & Watch Part 2 at: https://rockclass101.com/magic-ukulele-waltz/ ---- An enchanting melody from ukulele virtuoso Roy Smeck. This arrangement comes courtesy of another Ukulele sensation: Ukulelezaza. If you are unfamiliar with him, I highly suggest to check him out – amazing musician! If we were to simplify this arrangement, we can think of it as an A B A melody. Though, each melody is repeated and contains many variations. So, I’ve further subdivided it as follows: Intro (4 Bars) Melody A: A, B Melody B: C, D Melody A: E, F The sheer length of this arrangement is the first factor that makes it difficult. Another tricky sections lies in the B melody; there are a few bars which require full barre chords that jump quickly up and down the neck. I would highly recommend to approach learning this piece by breaking down each melody in half (8 bar phrases). And working to memorize and perfect that section before tackling the complete 16 bar* melody. * Note: Melody B and E are 20 bars in length. ---- EXTRA HELPFUL LESSONS View our Fingerpicking Course: https://rockclass101.com/fingerpicking-concepts-intro-fingerstyle/ Increase Left Hand Reach (Stretch Playing): https://rockclass101.com/increasing-left-hand-reach-ukulele/ ---- Ukulelezaza Links Special thanks to Ukulelezaza for writing an amazing arrangement of this Roy Smeck classic.

This is the second, and final recording by Roy Smeck of that beautiful tune of his, the Magic Uke Waltz. You can also listen to Winin' Boys' live version of this tune here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92oCd-NhDgY This record, issued in 1980, was record label Blue Goose's attempt at "restoring Roy Smeck to his natural setting" and getting rid of the lush band arrangements of his 1950's and 1960's recordings, which "amounts to pouring ketchup on caviar". Roy, at the tender age of 79 or 80, is heard on the ukulele. He is accompanied by Dick Plotka on the baritone uke and John Goodman on guitar. For this recording Smeck added a gorgeous third strain to this Waltz tune. (This here video sounds as if I recorded the lp in my bathroom, but it is due to the awful sound of my laptop's built-in microphone. Still, enjoy nonetheless!)

With a uke that is slowly getting a bit out of tune, I tried to play this old Winin' Boy favourite, the Roy Smeck original "Magic Uke Waltz", the way he played it on his very last record ("Wizard of the Strings" on the Blue Goose label). The camera seems to have spontaneously stopped filming half-way through. A digital camera with musical taste, imagine!

Martin fluorocarbon strings, and I've had the end of the headstock shortened to make the most of it's tiny form.

This is, as far as I know, the first recording by Roy Smeck, Mr. Ukulele himself, of his beautiful Magic Ukulele Waltz. You can also listen to Winin' Boys' live version of this tune here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92oCd-NhDgY Roy Smeck, on ukulele, is accompanied by Tony Gottuso and Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, Sam Bruno on bass, Bob Creash on accordion and Marty Grupp, percussion. The rest of the accompaniment and the arrangement are by Tony Gottuso (This here video sounds like I taped this lp in my bathroom, but I assure you; that's the sound from the built-in mic of my laptop. 'Spose it'll have to do for now...) Enjoy!

Composed and played by Mr. Roy Smeck Ukulele Zazaさんと https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAcIGmVMTMs この方 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I49yVtPjF8w の演奏を参考にさせていただきました。 Ukulele Zazaさんはこないだ来日されてたみたいですね。 生で演奏聴いてみたかった！ この曲といえばマホガニーのマーチンで弾くのが定番ですが コアのコアロハで弾いてみました。 でもやっぱりこの曲にはマーチンが一番合うかな（笑） この曲の存在を知り、「弾きたい！」と思い、 練習を始めてから５、６年。。 やっと何とか一通り覚えられてよかったです。 Ukulele: KoAloha soprano (1999)

A sneak peek at one of the tracks off the new album (currently in progress) This is an original song I composed a couple months back and creates a visual of two ukulele's dancing to a waltz. Enjoy! Also, I'm a little congested so if you hear weird congested breathing noises, I apologize in advance haha.

Get the TABS, Access the On-Screen TAB Viewer, & Watch Part 2 at: https://rockclass101.com/ukulele-waltz-in-c/ ---- A classical waltz with a playful melody that serves as a perfect challenge for the seasoned beginner. There are two areas of study in which this piece excels at; one is technique and the other is movement. One of the techniques used is staccato, which are detached, short notes that add a unique articulation to the music. Another technique that is used is legato slides (covered in our Beginner’s Course [Link Below]), which can be thought of as the opposite of staccato in that you are performing a passage in a smooth, flowing manner without breaks between notes. This piece also sees us performing throughout the entire span of the neck, i.e. movement. This is great because it helps break us away from playing notes and chords predominantly in the beginning of the neck (frets 1-5). ---- EXTRA HELPFUL LESSONS The Definitive Beginner’s Guide to Ukulele - Complete Course: https://rockclass101.com/definitive-beginners-guide-ukulele/ Understand Rhythmic Notation & Counting: https://rockclass101.com/understanding-rhythmic-notation-ukulele/ CAGED Method - Move Chords Up/Down the Neck: https://rockclass101.com/understanding-and-applying-the-caged-method-on-ukulele/ Develop Proper Left Hand Form - Master Chords: https://rockclass101.com/proper-left-hand-ukulele-form/ Fingerpicking Etude no. 11 - Develop precision in your right hand muting, picking, & strumming attack: https://rockclass101.com/fingerpicking-etude-no-11/

I first heard this song a couple of years ago and set out to learn it. Found the music for it and have been playing it every day since. It's much easier on my larger tenor ukes, but since this new soprano doesn't always work well for the jazzy stuff I usually do, I thought I'd just give it a go. If you YouTube this song, you'll hear nearly everyone play it a little differently. I'd love to find an original Smeck recording so I can see what it's REALLY supposed to sound like... This is a RipTide soprano (US-5NS) from Boulder Creek. My wife got it as a souvenir from me during her recent trip to Hawaii. For a low cost uke, it sounds pretty good, though I have some intonation problems with it - and the strings still may be stretching, so I decided not to get too worked up about the tuning issues (like I normally do...) The sound hole configuration is different for sure, but I like it - and it's a great little addition my collection and it's fun to play!

Je ré-enregistre une version de ce standard entendu et ré-entendu maintes fois. J'essaie de m'approcher de la version de de l'album Wizard of the Strings avec des maladresses qui me rendent fou ! Encore quelques années d'apprentissage et je lui met la pâtée à ce mec. En attendant, il force l'admiration toujours. Je joue mon vieux Martin style 2 en acajou des années 20. I re-recorded version of the standard re-heard and heard again. I try to approach the version of the LP Wizard of the Strings with blunders that make me crazy ! A few more years of training and I put the beating that guy. Meanwhile, he still commands admiration. I play my old mahogany 20's Style 2 Martin.

I'm not on top of this yet but ... meh! This is the perfect demonstration of the Vex Chord - The chord that is written into an otherwise straightforward song to make it unplayable by mortals. Here: the inversion of Gm7 at 1m37s (that I accidentally play as an Am7, as if to prove the point)... Anyway... Irresistibly sweet song.

A nice little piece by Roy Smeck - the first true 'melody' piece I learned, and I'm not the best at it, to be honest. But I tried, at least. The ukulele I'm playing here is a little koa instrument from Hawai'i, and was made in ~1914 - a few years before the first ukulele explosion in America.
