                                  Beginner Sessions in South Tampa!

New Beginner Sessions Page posted on the Blog for past Sessions.  Charts are now available on that page from the 1st Session. More to come.  Follow this link directly to the page for catching up!

 http://30sukegirl.blogspot.com/p/beginner-sessions.html

Directions to my house and information on the gate code are listed below the song list at the bottom of Requirements, under section 6! 

REQUIREMENTS: 1st Timers, please read!

1.  Shopping List: You MUST get a tuner for Ukulele at either Sam Ash, Guitar Center, or some mom and pop music store. I also want you to invest in a Banjo/mandolin Capo.  You will get a 10% discount at Sam Ash in Clearwater if you mention TBUS.  Bring the tuner and capo to the meet up!  Print out your music that is listed below and bring that with you to the session.  Bring a small music stand to place your music on. 

2. Go to  http://30sukegirl.blogspot.com/p/absolute-beginner.html   to the ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS page.  Scroll down to the first video and tune your UKULELE with that video, (or use one of the links  below to tune up) then go through the first three or four videos to learn the basic chords.  These are valuable lessons and you need to come prepared to these sessions with at least these basics.  I review the basic chords on each session, but if you consistently practice with these videos that Chile Monster has allowed me to post, you will move much quicker through the jams and sessions. 

3. Then, the night before our meet up, please check your tuning again. Here are links to tuner sites if you still haven't bought a tuner.  These sites are helpful, but you will be tuning by ear. http://www.get-tuned.com/online_ukulele_tuner.php  or you can use http://ukebuddy.com/ukulele-tuner . 

4. This will expedite our tuning time and help us move through the sessions covering more material.  If you come unprepared, you are welcome to sit in, watch and listen, but I will not be able to stop the session to teach these very basic steps, as we have new players each Wednesday and we'd never move forward otherwise.  So, help out your fellow meet up partners and come prepared with the above mentioned skills and items.  You will learn so much more that way!

5. The songs listed below are on Dr Ukes site.  You can print both the Chord song page as well as the non diagram page in both C Tuning for Tenor etc or you can Go directly to his site and click on the BAR sign next to the song for Baritone tuning.  We will review the past songs in each session as well as jamming on a few easy ones to "EASE the tension" lol of learning all these chords.  

Directions to my house and information on the gate code are listed below the song list!

    TBUS members were awesomeness tonight! I hardly recognized your playing compared to July! You've all come so far! Our newest attendees were Scott Weber, 2nd time with us, and brand new to all TBUS events, first timer Tony DiGiorgio. Scott played guitar before succombing to Ukulele, and Tony plays wicked Accordion! We welcomed back Judi Kelly from her travels and she did some really fine playing tonight. Arnold Toney and Michael Mooney, you guys are just getting to good for your britches! I am so happy when I turn to look at your playing and there is nothing to show you cause you already have it!! Yay!!!! Lastly, Sharon! WOW!!!! You NAILED that timing on I Can See Clearly Now! Da Da Da Da DaDaDa Da DaDa Da! Just remember everyone, it is[masked]! Great Job all of you! Carla, we miss you and wish you well, and our prayers to you in this sad time! See you when your journeys are over my friend!

    Hi Norine, I won't be able to attend again for a long time, since my husband will be away for 4 months and school-night babysitters are scarce, but I enjoyed the 2 times I did come and really appreciate what you're doing with this group! Thanks!

      We will miss you. No worries, there will be a spot for you when you can make it back. Bring your family with you to the South Tampa Jam if you need to. There is plenty of room. Also, maybe we can arrange some one on one time to boost your skills. Just let me know.
