"Pick, Pluck, Muffle and Strum" Ukulele Workshop and Concert with Cool Hand Uke

Pick, Pluck, Muffle, and Strum: Newbies, intermediate and advanced players learn a variety of strums and muffles, picking patterns and other finger, thumb and palm techniques to add interest and texture to songs.  Trills, glissando, chromatic walks, daring rhythms, and other paraphernalia of the accomplished ukulele player are explored.

Both events will be held at the Wilkins School Community Center, near Regent Square. The workshop will be from 1 - 3 PM and the concert will be from 7 - 9 PM.

    Great tips and tricks! So glad for all of you who could make it. More stuff we can use to improve our playing. I also plan to share some of this in future Wed. night sessions.

    I learned so much about plucking, picking, etc. Great stuff. Can't wait to master it.

    Dan Scanlan presented some very interesting strum techniques. I think everybody who attended will improve their ukulele playing skills.

    I changed the RSVP settings and registration is again open. There is space available at the workshop for additional walk-in participants. Please be prepared to pay by cash at the door.

    Jack, is it still too late to be a walk-in? I ask because the ability to RSVP has been closed.

    We would appreciate if participants pre-register and pre-pay for this event, however, there is adequate space and a system is in place to process walk-ins. Walk-ins should be prepared to pay with cash. We cannot process checks or credit cards at the door. If you think that you might be attending this Workshop, please RSVP "Yes" ahead of time so that we know how many seats might be needed.

    Drew, I think the only limitation is our workshop space. The only reason I see a problem with last minute registration is if we can't physically accommodate latecomers. However, we would much prefer people preregister if they know ahead of time.

    I do hope that there are accommodations for those who wish pay at the door and room for some who do not pre-register.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
