Hi Moses! Another great Meetup! Thanks so much for the excellent lessons today! And the Open Mic was much fun. I am looking forward to the next one we will have at the vineyards! Thanks for helping set that up for us. :)
I would love to learn to play the Ukulele! I lived in Hawaii for about 6 years and my two daughters were born there, so it is a special place and the Ukulele music is very special, too!
Where is the meeting this Sat? I may need to babysit my Grandson in the evening, though. I will try either this time or another! THANKS!
Aloha braddah Moses, welcome to da Space Coast Ukulele Ohana. It's a pleasure chating with you and hope to meet you soon. I'm still learning how to teach our beginner members and any help from you would be much appreciated. So far so good, no major complaints that I can't improve on. Our members are a great bunch of ukusters, each with there own level of playing. Have an awesome warm day in Virgina. I'll keep in touch and mahalo for joining our club, Elika Kaiwi
Beautiful, just the way it should be done. 5'2" is the model for the 7ths run. BTW- I have been developing teaching aids for many years, so if you need anything specific, let me know; I just might have it, such as a magnetic finger board with color mag 'dots' for demonstrating chord forms. -ray-
Moses - By all means, use as you see fit. It is OK, educationally, to introduce the concept with your beginners, but it makes more sense to them at a good solid intermediate level. If the beginners seem confused by it, drop it until they get more fundamentals under their belt. Too many "teachers" introduce too much 'in-depth' theory way too early. Teaching from the KNOWN to the RELATED UNKNOWN has always been the course of least confusion and greatest benefit. (cont)
Thanks for the enlistment. I would like nothing better than to jam with you and Lisa. That is a promise from me to help make that happen. I look forward to many such jams. And, as always, you all are invited to beautiful Boise any time.... -ray-
