3rd Wednesday of Month - Regent Square Area

Leader: Heidi!  Come at 6:45 pm to tune-up and talk. We play from 7 to 9 pm, starting with the playlist below, followed by requests. No experience required! All levels are welcome, from beginners to professionals. If you don't know the chords... just sing louder.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The theme of the night is “arrangement”. We’ll use some well-known and relatively easy songs to add dynamics and vocal harmony. Nothing complicated. No experience required.

We’ll play other songs al Fresco (aka - no fussing).  For more adventurous ukers: If you like to figure out and play melody lines on the Uke, La La Blues and Sometimes I Think I Love You would love a Uke break! Hope to see/hear you there!

    Kudos to Heidi. We not only enjoyed the playlist, but it felt like a workshop. I learned more tonight, with hands-on playing than any other ukulele session in my past. The group played until 9 and nobody wanted to stop.

    Wow! I know what harmony is but really have no idea how it's created. Yet, with grace and a wonderful sense of the music we played, Heidi was able to draw out some terrific harmony from us. What a wonderful evening! Thank you Heidi!
