The Ann Arbor Ypsilanti Ukulele Group Monthly Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

The theme for our October Meetup is "3 Chord Songs!.  If you are a beginner, this is a great time to finally meetup with us and learn some great songs!  All songs for this meetup will be only 3 chords (or less).  For our more experienced members, this is a great time to share those easier songs that carry a lot of bang for your chord dollar, if you know what I mean?

Print out and bring any music posted after the previous meetup. You can find the music up at the top under the "MORE" tab, then click >>Files. Remember, if there's a song you would like to play, please post it there or bring 10 copies.

See you there!

    Excellent. Two-chord and three-chord songs was a great idea.

    Sorry to miss Uke Jam. I got sick & didn't want to spread the germs!

    Excellent meeting! Glad to see so many new faces. It gave me a chance to try out my baritone without being too self-conscious about it.

    Exactly the inspiration I needed to give this instrument a whirl.

    Linda, Mark, and Chris: I picked up a cheap baritone and decided to try the special strings recommended by Glen Rose at jazzyukulele.com. With extra long strings and a special G string, you can tune the Bari as you would a soprano, gcea, and don't have to worry about the different tuning and different chords for the meetup. You also tune the g string down an octave which gives a different sound. Just something to play with since we already have conventionally tuned sopranos. Glen says the sound is ideal for playing jazz chords on the uke. I'll bring it to the meetup tonite and you can play it to see if it's something you'd like to pursue too.

      Sweet :^) I saw an inexpensive baritone the other day and didn't pick it up because I didn't want to confuse myself with a whole new tuning/new set of chords!

      Cool. I was looking at jazzyukulele the other day. I will have the baritone version of the music for tonight.

    Ooh! Three Little Birds by Bob Marley. (Or do you want to stay away from barre chords?)

      Lisa - need me to dig up the music?

      That would be great!

    Got a new baritone uke. Need to learn how to do something with it. 3 chords enters the realm of the possible.

    • Mark S.

      That's DGBE! I'll make sure I have the Baritone chords to use.

      I saw a baritone that was really inexpensive and thought about picking it up... but then I'd own three ukuleles after playing for only 4 months and that seemed a bit extreme! UAD sets in early...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
