We're having another Online West Chester Uke Jam on Wed from 6-7pm!
RSVP by clicking on "Attend online" in advance so then you'll be able to see the link on the day of the jam. Once the jam starts, Meetup doesn't allow someone to RSVP and get the link immediately.
Once you've chosen to "Attend online" you'll be able to see the link to the right --------->
We'll use music from our online WC Uke Jam Songbook and music collection. In our Google Drive you'll see our songbook, folders for other songs folks have shared & instructions on how to start using our online tools. Send any additional songs in advance to me

We'll show the music when we're online and you can look at your computer or tablet to play along so there's no need to print it out. We're asking volunteers to lead a song & we take turns. The audio doesn't work when we all play & sing together so everyone but the leader will be muted as you sing & play along at home. Nobody has to be a perfect singer and it takes a bit of courage to try, so your job is to sing loudly at home!
**You're very much encouraged to lead a song.** Anyone leading MUST have made the "Settings to Improve Music Audio" (see document in the songbook link above) and have "Preserve Original Sound" on. Questions? Ask me (Charlot) ahead of time and I'll assist.
Age range is adult: high school onward. We welcome all levels of ability in playing and singing. If you're just starting and have played 3 chords, you'll fit right in. If you're more advanced, you'll fit in too.
We may take a screenshot of our group in Zoom to share with others about the fun we have. We'll never record video except on the rarest of occasions to say a special 'hello' to someone and even then with warning.
