MAKING SENSE OF THE FRETBOARD: (I)This is an intermediate level workshop about making sense of chords, movable shapes, dumbing down "complicated" chords... and making the instrument more playable! Basic music theory made easy. Counting on your fingers is totally acceptable (we’ll only go to 7!). Learn how to move from major to minor, and add color. We’ll get inside diminished chords, augmented chords, and suspended chords, so that you don’t have be afraid of them anymore!
LEFT HAND PLAYING TECHNIQUES: (B I) (which will be a hybrid of two classes) Right-hand strumming is obviously a very important part to playing ukulele… but it’s only half of it! Using your left hand to manipulate the changes and the length of the note hold can make a world of difference in how your ukulele will sound! Be prepared for a fun (and very hands on) workshop as we play with different rhythms, muting techniques, hammer ons (and slides). Your playing will never be the same!
