Hi there! I am so happy I joined the Hau`oli Strummers, a fantastic group of beginning players who are amazingly supportive and welcoming. I've been playing ukulele for years but have never gotten my songs honed enough to perform in public until now.
I have been playing for several years. Just on my own, for fun.
Yes, I have three.
Currently I am working on "On Moonlight Bay" (Percy Wenrich and Edward Madden) and "Take Good Care of My Baby" ( Carole King and Gerry Goffin)
I played cello as a child, I learned accordion as an adult.
I would like to learn scales to do solos and improvisation. Also, I would like to expand my chord repertoire.
I am constantly impressed with the diversity of people who attend this group! There is always a steady stream of newcomers and the established members maintain the welcoming, fun environment for everyone!
Thanks for the warm welcome, Tim! I've had such a great time these past two meetups. Everyone is so enthusiastic about learning, it's so inspiring. :) Big Mahalo for putting out the HUGE song book last week, I can't wait to practice with everyone again this Tues. Aloha!
Omg, thank you for the kind invite and words of beginner encouragement. I will definitely try to make it tomorrow. I really love music and I'm kinda struggling with some basics like how to hold the thing. But I also have some chords and strums memorized so I've made some progress:-)
Thanks for the welcome! I'm going to try to make it the Tuesday before the Uke Retreat. That will be my next trip down. Until then I'm swamped putting my Reno Uke Fest together. So little to do, so much time. Scratch that. Reverse it...
Hi—just discovered the welcome message (Meetup newbie); thanks! Look forward to meeting you guys Tuesday!
Thanks for writing :-) I'll look forward to meeting you on the 15th!
Hi Timothy! Thanks for letting me know you have loaners! So I may show up at the next meetup! I am an absolute beginner... Hope that is ok!
Thank you for the welcome Tim....I hope to meet you and the rest of the Ukulele gang tonight a Kahunas! I will of course, be in costume......
