You have some basic chords memorized - what's next?
You have some of the basic chords memorized, you can play a few tunes and you are ready to explore a little more about this fascinating instrument. Perhaps you are a guitar player and you want to transfer those skills to the ukulele? In this course we will quickly review the basics, fix any bad habits you might have picked up along the way and then begin to explore the possibilities. We will touch on all the major uke genres, Hawaiian, Contemporary, the Great American Songbook (did you know that all those songs were written to be easily played on the ukulele) and more. We will also spend time learning some of the many hilarious songs that have been written over the years for the uke. You won't even realize that you are learning right hand technique, advanced chording and more than a little music theory because you will be having far too much fun to notice. At the end of this week's lessons you will be ready to form your own ukulele band. Period ?? Gordon Roberts
