    kok, have I brought my Ohana baritone for you to try before?

    April 26, 2014

    • itsme

      Yeah, my Mainland red cedar tenor's in low G and I was actually thinking about bringing it for a change. I'll bring the bari, too.

      Thanks for bringing along the mainland. It was a pleasure to play.

    I had a blast, as usual. Good to see everyone again, as well as some new faces. And I've been inspired to take a song I wanted to learn and transpose it to a key that's more doable for my vocal range. :)

      I guess the theoretical preamble did make a dent...yay!

  • miss j.

    I can make it now but is this still going?

    April 27, 2014

    • kok y.

      Sorry I missed your message. We played until @4:45...

    Kok, Check it out:

    Do you want me to do a music theory lesson for people that can't read music?

    1 · April 22, 2014

    • kok y.

      Why not, give it a shot.

      April 22, 2014

    • itsme

      Dave, I hope you won't spend too long on this. People with a good grasp of theory don't need a lesson. Those who don't, probably don't really care. I looked at the attachment you posted and it kind of made my eyes glaze over. I can't see how you could effectively cover the topic in a brief amount of time.

      Last meetup at kok's he'd given us a sheet to download with the equivalent chord diagrams for different keys. One page, real simple. I think the most important and practical aspect of theory as far as most of us goes is being able to transpose chords to another key that's more in our singing range. But I think it would be neat if at some time you and kok led a meetup that focused on theory and how it applies specifically to uke.

    I'll be coming after Bambi's jam if over by 12:30.

    April 22, 2014

    • kok y.

      Not sure if Bambi's meet up is on the same day...

      April 22, 2014

    • itsme

      kok, Bambi just scheduled a rehearsal for 10:00-11:30 this Sunday, as well as the next two Sundays (May 4 and May 11, both 12-1:30) at Two Strikes Park in LaCrescenta for the La Canada Fiesta Days Performance she's organizing for Saturday, May 24 at 7pm.

    I don't play ukulele but would love to go for a show! I can sing if you need a singer! :)

    1 · April 22, 2014

    • kok y.

      Please feel free to join us. There's always one or two extra ukes during our jams that you can play.

    Kok, I missed your last get-together, so I'm anxious to make this one. See you folks then!

    April 16, 2014

  • itsme

    Well, I don't want to be square, so I'll plan to be there. This time I think I'll bring a snack more on the savory side. Last time we kind of had an overload of sweets. It was all good, though. The jams at your place are always fun. Looking forward to it.
