2 Jun 2015 Continuing Ukulele Class
Joel Jacques
Expand your bank of skills in the three main areas of strumming (varying your rhythms), fingerpicking (techniques and patterns), and melodic playing (solos and duets). Some fundamental music theory will be explored. Think of this as an exercise class: a place to push your playing skills in order to get them into top shape. Being comfortable with strumming, singing and some fingerpicking plus basics of reading tab is recommended for getting the most out of this class.
