Ukulele And Beatbox Lesson

Jody Kamisato and Jason Tom with this Ukulele Beatbox Collaborative Tutorial. An ukulele which means "jumping flea" is a 4-string instrument and is an adaptation of the Portuguese machete. The ukulele was invented in our Hawaiian islands during the plantation period and was introduced into our Hawaiian music culture throughout our Hawaiian islands that eventually spread throughout the United States of America and the world. It's an instrument that nearly all residents young and old of our Hawaiian islands pick up and start playing and have probably at one point picked up playing and tried it. Beatboxing originates in a cappella vocal art tradition from the musical stylings and genre of jazz with scat singing and the urban hip-hop music culture and can be traced even further back to African cultural vocal traditions and languages. "Boots and cats" is an onomatopoeia for the three foundational beatboxing sounds just as "my dog has fleas" is an onomatopoeia for tuning an ukulele. Jody and Jason had a great time with this collaborative tutorial, please let us know what you think in the comments. Thank you!
