GOOD VIBES: PLAYING MELODIES ON YOUR UKULELE

We’ll explore different ‘voicings’ of chords by playing new chords higher up the neck, learn about moveable chords, add riffs and licks to familiar songs, play catchy Celtic melodies and sing loudly, joyfully and in harmony when you want to. You’ll play some blues and improvise blues solos, perhaps even write a Camp Creative blues. Our group will also explore some interesting strumming styles and join with another uke class to present combined performances that will blow the socks off other campers! 

 

The Song is Ended but the Melody lingers on – Irving Berlin  

 

 

 

 

Course Requirements

Students in this class  1. should be familiar with many chord shapes and move between them fluidly (most major and minor chords in the first three frets); 2. want to learn to play their instrument beyond the first three frets; 3. will know the C scale and can play it up and down (by January 2017); 4. have had a go at picking patterns on their uke and want to play more finger-style ukulele (get those right-hand fingers limbered up and working independently by January). 

What to bring: Music stand, pencil, sharpener, note paper, a folder for your handouts, water, sense of humour!
