The gentle ukulele must be THE best instrument to play in an apartment, or a car, or on the beach or in the park: wherever friends gather.
It’s such a gentle little thing that you can strum away under conversations and become a part of the soundtrack of life.
What’s more: it’s straightforward to learn and there are HEAPS of resources out there to help you.
Using a few classic tunes, this class will teach you the basic chords and knowledge that will give you access to thousands of songs and hours of happiness.
What will we cover?
- How do you hold it? How do you strum it? How do you keep the beat?
- Why a uke is much more than a little guitar.
- Tips on strings, ukes to buy and not to buy, and why an electronic clip-on tuner is essential for the modern uker.
- A touch of uke history so you can win points at trivia nights.
- Learn three of classic hits to gradually build our stock of fundamental chords and strums.
- You’ll go home with these tunes ‘under your belt’, a couple of others to study and a very useful list of resources you can access online, including the best places to go to get ukulele song sheets for your future learning and sing-a-longs.
