Jake Shimabukuro Triple Strum Technique (video)

A while back I came across the following video detailing a flamenco style uke strum I’ve seen Shimabukuro and others use. In the video, Jake breaks down the whole strum step by step. When I first watched the video I thought that it would be pretty hard to get the strum up to speed but I’ve been practicing it slowly and it’s starting to come together. You just have to do it for a while and kind of blindly accept that you will get better—it feels very odd at first (if you have no experience with these kinds of strums.)
