For those who have taken Ukulele 1 (or feel comfortable playing chords in the Key of C), this class expands on the basic skills you've mastered and deepens them further. You will learn more chords and chord families, as well as how and why we might move a song from one chord family to another (a.k.a. transposing). You will also expand your repertoire of strum patterns, further developing your sense of rhythm. Songs you will learn include several examples of the 12-bar blues (sung by the likes of Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong), as well as three-chord songs from Appalachia made famous by The Carter Family.
Note: We designed this class for soprano, concert, and tenor ukulele players. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are a baritone ukulele player, so we can arrange adapted materials for you. Not sure if you have a baritone? Let us know that, too: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: This class is not held at Artichoke. It is held (W Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship) - 8470 SW Oleson Road.
Taught by Avery Hill of Song by Song™.
