Beginners Jam - 4th Wednesday

Leader - Marlene.  Are you have an interest in the ukulele and have wondered what this little instrument is all about?  Would you like a little encouragement and practice in forming and switching chords? These Meetups are for you!

Ukulele Jam with play for the beginner or novice. Easy songs, played slowly. Not intended to replace lessons. Practice your ukulele basics and build on the skills you already have.

WHAT YOU NEED: Please print out song sheet links below.

The Standards:

We will be playing these songs at every Beginner Jam.

Five Foot Two

Edelweiss

The Playlist:

For Jan Beginners Jams, we will stay with 2-3 chord songs:

Beginner Jam A

For mid-Feb to March beginner jams, we will try out songs with more chords:

Beginner Jam B

Finally in April, some songs with even more chords:

Beginner Jam C

We will also supplement our playlist with songs from "The Daily Ukulele.. 365" by Liz & Jim Beloff. Please bring a copy if possible.

EQUIPMENT:

ukulele, tuner, music stand

Student Ukulele Chord Chart: This is a good chord chart and you should have a copy for reference.  A simpler chart too: Chord Chart for Absolute Beginners

If you don't have a uke, we have extras to share for the jam. Just bring your enthusiasm and a willingness to try.

Please contact Jack through the Meetup site if you have any questions.

    I won't be able to make it after all, BUT I wanted to share the very exciting news that Biddle's Escape, our summer venue but also walking distance to Wilkins School, will be having food trucks on Wednesdays starting at 5:30 from tonight (Pittsburgh Taco Truck tonight!) through the end of September. I'll try to post the vendors on each meetup in case you want a yummy quick dinner!

    Would have loved to come to this event but I have a schedule conflict. Still I will look at the suggested play list for future events. Thanks!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
