Do you some basic experience playing ukulele and would like to learn more? Or perhaps you’ve put your uke down and want to get started again? This class is for people who have a basic knowledge of uke playing--how to hold and tune your instrument, play some basic chords, and know how to play along with some easy songs. (Anyone who attended the beginner's class at Create Space in May or October qualifies.) It’s also for people of any experience who want to play along with a group. This class will keep you motivated and engage you fully in the fun of playing songs with a group of players.
In each session we’ll focus on three primary content areas:
- Easy chords & progressions
- Strumming & picking techniques
- Increasing your repertoire of songs
We’ll learn songs from folk, pop, blues and traditional Hawaiian music.
