Hi everybody, there were cases of people joining the group previously who were unable to meet the expected playing requirements. These people felt disappointed or left-out of the group. To reiterate what our stance has always been - We are an advanced-level ukulele playing group. In order to prevent such future disappointments/frustrations, we require anyone who wishes to join take a short test consisting of eight exercises. The exercises are in a zip file that I have uploaded under "More --> Files" section. Here are the rules: • You may choose any 6 out of 8 exercises. • Fingerstyle Chord-Melody playing exercise is compulsory and must be one of the five. • Scale playing exercise must be executed first in thumb-only method, followed by any combination of P-I, P-M or I-M. • You may request existing group members to demonstrate any of the exercises, however you are not allowed to ask them to teach you to play it. • Individual skill & proficiency must be demonstrated. • Existing group members will decide if you are of sufficient technical proficiency. • We reserve the right to fail any of the exercises should we deem you unable to execute it fluently.
Podcasts here will be updated weekly or as and when possible. We will cover a range of topics ranging from strumming to picking or music theory. Please bear in mind these are NOT tutorials but are related to things we discuss during meetups. http://slickeststrummers.podomatic.com/
