The Blue Uke Workshop will cover:
• How to fingerpick melodies and accompaniment on blues repertoire suitable for the ukulele.
• An introduction to right-hand fingerpicking, including what makes a melody “blue.”
• Songs that suit the ukulele from 1920s guitar greats like Charlie Jordan and Barbecue Bob.
We’ll listen to some recordings, and learn a song in class. Bring your ukulele (standard C tuning), a notebook and a pencil. Audio recorders are OK, if unobtrusive.
To fully participate in the workshop, you’ll need to be familiar with basic chords, and be able to change chords easily while keeping time with the music.
The Concert: “Rey refers to herself as “trailer trash with a library card” and her catalog reflected that schism with a mix of classic ragtime, hillbilly and blues covers as well as her own original tunes, most marked by a winking sense of humor.” — Michael Eck, The Times Union
