Leader - Jack. Are you have an interest in the ukulele and have wondered what this little instrument is all about? Would you like a little encouragement and practice in forming and switching chords? These Meetups are for you!

Ukulele Jam with play for the beginner or novice. Easy songs, played slowly. Not intended to replace lessons. Practice your ukulele basics and build on the skills you already have.

WHAT YOU NEED: Please print out song sheet links below.

The Standards:

We will be playing these songs at every Beginner Jam.

Finally in April, some songs with even more chords:

We will also supplement our playlist with songs from "The Daily Ukulele.. 365" by Liz & Jim Beloff. Please bring a copy if possible.

EQUIPMENT:

Student Ukulele Chord Chart (http://files.meetup.com/6060022/Student%20Uke%20Chord%20Chart.pdf): This is a good chord chart and you should have a copy for reference. A simpler chart too: Chord Chart for Absolute Beginners (http://ukulelewednesdays.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/ukulele-chord-chart-for-absolute-beginners-from-learn-to-uke.pdf)

If you don't have a uke, we have extras to share for the jam. Just bring your enthusiasm and a willingness to try.
