Aloha, my name is Jarret Delos Santos and I was born and raised in a little town called Hana on the east side of Maui. Playing the ukulele and teaching the ukulele gives me a chance to perpetuate our culture. So today, we're going to be talking about the ukulele. Okay, palm mute is another way of playing your instrument and what you do is like a karate chop right above your bridge area and what you're using is your palm to mute the strings and it kind of sounds like this. The muting sound comes from your palm resting on the strings and not allowing it to fully ring and it's almost a percussion sound.
