What finger do you strum a ukulele with?

1. F, for the first fingering

2. G, for the second fingering

The second finger is a “reverse finger.” The first finger plays the notes that come up on the second finger. So in a minor F major scale, the second finger would play the notes that comes up on the first fret. So to practice your second finger, you could either strum your thumb with your first finger, or you can use your first finger in the “reverse finger” position for your first finger strumming.

3. D, for the third or fourth finger

The fourth finger plays the notes that come up on the fourth fret. So in any scale that has a major scale in it, the fourth fingering would strum the notes that come up on the second fret. You could also use the “reverse finger” position for your fourth finger strumming.

4. E, for the fifth finger.

The fifth finger plays the notes that come up on the fifth fret. You could also use the reverse finger position while you strum your fourth finger to get the notes that come up on the second fret.

5. G, for the sixth or seventh finger.

The seventh fret (the fifth fret on a fretboard) plays the notes that come up on the sixth or 7th fret. To play the second from the seventh fret, you can use the reverse finger.

6. D, for the eighth or ninth finger.

The ninth fret (the fourth fret on a fretboard) plays the notes that come up on the tenth fret. To play the second, you can use the reverse finger.

In this example it’s shown that it’s possible to strum the notes that come up on the first, third, sixth and eighth frets on the fretboard using the three finger “reverse finger” positions.

Another example is shown in Figure 6, where we’re going to strum the notes that come up on the third fret with the left hand, and the notes that come up on the fifth fret with the right hand. This is the same scale played just like this on the fretboard.

Here’s the technique in action:

Start with your left hand on the first fret:

Start strumming with your left hand. Start strumming with your right hand, using the
