Strum A Sat 1 PM Sep 24
Strumming Workshop "A": Beginner-Level Accompaniment. Sep 24 Saturday 1-3:30 PM at Good Day Ukulele studio (near Olbrich Gardens, East Madison). The ukulele's "natural voice" is strumming, but many players get stuck recycling just a small number of strumming patterns. We'll help you get unstuck by exploring a wide assortment of relatively easy patterns and compatible songs. We'll also help you understand why specific patterns work with certain types of songs. Half of the workshop is spent explaining and demonstrating patterns; the other half practicing them together in songs. We'll take a 20 minute break to stretch, discuss new ideas with each other, and build community. Visual and audio recordings are provided, so note-taking is NOT necessary. Please bring a ukulele and tuner.
