We’ll be on for about an hour this evening with a rotating cast of song leaders. YB/BB designations indicate either the Beloff 365 or 366; all of the other links come from our group files. Any songs that are indicated with a ***** may be extra depending on time and guest leaders.

SCU Little Band

Wilkins School Community Center

Currently, Little Band is invite only. Please contact Sunny via Meetup if you are interested. So what is Little Band? It is a breakout group from the general SCU membership that focuses on advanced ukulele ensemble music. The intent of LB is to advance your skills, work on more complex music, perform or busk in the future. Here’s what you need to know to feel comfortable in this group. * LB is best for the intermediate-advanced player. * The songs and arrangements usually will have multiple parts with a mix of chords, finger-picking styles and strum patterns. * Players need to be able to read tab and/or read music notation for the uke. *Players need to have some experience and comfort with finger-picking and a variety of strums. *Practice prior to sessions is expected.
