Have you recently dropped a few Franklins on a new uke? Fingertips callused? Do you proselytize the “Gospel of Uke” and think global peace is possible if everyone just played ukulele? Well, this class might scratch that itch of yours. After reviewing essential beginner topics, we’ll test-drive a few fancy-shmancy strumming and picking techniques. We’ll step outside the major / minor box into more exotic chords. We’ll roam around “movable chord shapes” reduce the number of chords you need to remember by 4x. Discover how “chord progressions” help you: figure-out chords to songs, remember songs, and even write your own little ditties. Lastly, you'll learn creative strategies for playing with other musicians. “Ah-hah” moments guaranteed; epiphanies probable. Sing amen sister!
