This is Beginner Sessions, it is much slower paced, working on two songs a night. You will learn how to strum, how to move from chord to chord by using Transitional positions with finger sliding, and how to use the number system so you can change the key of a song.
This is a mini version of our jams and is intended to get those of you on the East side of the bay up and running so you can enjoy the other meetups better. Our regular meetup for the Tampa side is called South Tampa Jam and is every 3rd Saturday. We hope these mini jams on Wednesday will bolster your courage to come out and join us on that meet up as well as all the others that TBUS is offering.
Once you get very enthusiastic about your Ukulele, there are many fine teachers to help you go further in your musical pursuit. They are listed on the TBUS site. You can also go to my blog for more information on Ukulele. www.30'sukegirl.blogspot.com There is a page there titled Absolute Beginners and I was fortunate enough to get in touch with Chili Monster who let me post all his videos for beginners!
Note: Time permitting, after we play through the songs we are working on, I am up for doing a few more of your choice for fun. Work first, then fun! Hahaha. Songs for each session are listed below the maps! Happy Strumming! Norine Mungo
