Hi everyone,

I'd like to practice with different ukulele strumming patterns, in addition to the one I've found in the (excellent) real tracks.

Should I learn how to make my own styles? Is this possible? If so, can anyone point me to resources to learn how to do that?

And/or, is this something this community has some kind of shared repository of? That would be cool.

Thanks!

I'm not sure how much you know about Realtracks so please ignore the below if it is 'old' information for you.

Since Realtracks are audio recordings of musician's performances, the strumming patterns you hear with the ukelele Realtracks are fixed and cannot be altered.

In Stylemaker, you'll certainly be able to make your own strumming patterns but these will apply only to MIDI styles.

The below video clip explains how Stylemaker works.

This in-depth video clip explains how Stylemaker works. While the clip is from 1997, the principles are exactly the same today.

Regards,
Noel
