IN CASE YOU WILL BE IN THE AREA OR WANT TO ROAD TRIP:


The Eastern Shore Ukulele Club, Fairhope, Alabama, has scheduled a 2-hour workshop on "Strumming Techniques" for Thursday, March 21 at 7:00PM. The workshop will be held at the Fairhope Unitarian Fellowship Hall, 1150 Fairhope Avenue, Fairhope, AL.


The workshop, which will be led by ESUC member Mike Turner, will cover:


* Some "Strum Theory" to help us better understand how ukulele strums work

* Basic and advanced strum patterns for 4/4 and 3/4 time songs

* Blending different strum patterns in a song

* Strum techniques to help with playing and singing at the same time

* Tricks and techniques to dress up strums and song performance

* Left hand (chording) techniques to enhance strum patterns

* Pick/strum patterns (not rolls, but patterns that combine string picking with strumming)


This workshop should be good for players at all skill levels. Some of it will be a little advanced, but don't let that scare you off - we're putting this together to offer a little of something for everybody. Plus it's always good for us to challenge ourselves a bit to improve our playing. But we promise that even beginners will come away with something new you can use in your playing - it turns out that a lot of this strumming stuff looks and sounds WAY more complicated than it really is.


The techniques will apply to all types of ukulele - soprano, concert, tenor and baritone. A few of the patterns are particularly good for use on baritone and banjo ukuleles (for those of you who have them or are interested in them).


The workshop is free; we'll ask the standard $1 donation per participant to reimburse the Unitarian Fellowship for use of the space.


Please contact Mike Turner at sailoruke@aol.com to let us know you are coming, so we can make sure to have enough seating and handouts for everyone!
