Grieg In the Hall of the Mountain King for Baritone Ukulele

In this video Jeff Peterson plays his arrangement of In the Hall of the Mountain King by Grieg for baritone ukulele.

This evocative melody by Edvard Grieg provides a great opportunity to develop coordination between the hands when alternating the index and middle fingers in the right hand. The 3rd finger plays the Bb note on the 3rd string 3rd fret below this to create sustain between the notes. You can practice repeating the melody and gradually pick up the tempo with an accelerando until it is really flying!
