Intermediate ukulele class

  • March 16, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Do you want to learn how to...

  • Play in every key?
  • Understand and play above the 5th fret?
  • Understand and play strange chords like 'aug', 'dim', 'm7b5', 'add9', etc?
  • Become a better musician?
  • Play instrumental solos?

The URoC intermediate class after every Saturday regular meetup will hopefully aim to address these skills and more, such as different strums and picking patterns; riffs, licks and vamps; playing by ear; etc...

All are welcome.

We will start in the same room (Kinder Hall) 5 - 10 minutes after the regular Saturday meeting has finished and end before 5:00 pm.

I recommend the following text for intermediate uke:
Fred Sokolow and Jim Beloff. Fretboard Roadmaps: Ukulele. Hal Leonard.
