In this course, we pick up from where Intro to Ukulele and Beginning Ukulele 1 left off! This is for the uke student who now knows the four basic chords of: C,F,G,Ami.
It's now time to learn the next batch of chords with another batch of fun songs! The class format is very casual and almost like a group uke play/sing along. Tracy will teach you a few new strum techniques and rhythms to fancy things up. Also, a new basic finger picking patterns will also be introduced this term.
Each week will be a new fun and easy song. The group class will learn how to play fun classic to modern songs from the following set list (varies depending on term):
-Blowin' In The Wind
-Brown Eyed Girl
-Let It Be
-Stand By Me
-Will the Circle Be Unbroken
-Somewhere Over the Rainbow (a la Iz)
-Hey, Soul Sister
-I've Just Seen a Face (Beatles)
-Time of Your Life
-House of the Rising Sun
-Happy Birthday (yes, everyone should know it!)
Tracy will supply sheet music for the course. He will also teach the basics on how to read and understand the music, chord charts, and tabs. Once you understand these concepts, you can then begin to teach yourself!
