CALL Uke Jam! 

The ukulele has been described as the music instrument underdog – but it is making an amazing comeback! Uke Jam! intends to encourage this!

We are a group born from the CALL Interest Group: “Ukulele Intro – the Happiness Fix”. We have decided to continue on a weekly basis. We will play the songs we know and learn some new ones too!

We will explore how to use our IPADS and ONSONG. We try to arrange guest instructors from time to time.

Come join us when we play and sing with our ukuleles. Once in a while we will open our group up to any acoustics players (guitar, mandolin, banjo, hand drum, etc.) or singers to join the festivities!

If you are new to the uke, or just want to try it out – join us! If you are a player already – join us! We have had a lot of fun and have room for more!

This group of keen ukulele enthusiasts gathers weekly (see schedule).

Please contact Louise at ldormaar@gmail.com  for more information!

For Jams held at cSPACE King Edward, you must be a member of CALL ($50/year).

The Jams

Tips and Tricks for Newcomers
Some simple reminders, a little lesson, maybe a short cut or two....these and other things will be covered in "Tips & Tricks for Newcomers"

Onsong Tips & Tricks
Sooo...you've got your iPAD, you've purchased ONSONG - now what? How can you start learning about this powerful tool: How do you transpose a song into another key? How can you share a song? What if you love a song and want to get it into OnSong...how do you edit it?  These and other topics will be featured in this mini workshop!

What is Slow Pitch & "The Key of C"?

Are you new to the Ukulele or have forgotten most of what you once knew? Are you a recent graduate of the Happiness Fix?
Do you like to sing and would love to strum along to old favourites, and even some new tunes…..but you need a little more help? 

This Jam is for you!  We will be playing songs that have 2 – 4 chords, a simple strum, and are easy to sing along with.  We will introduce new chords, or simple enhancements as we get more familiar with the song set.

We will learn more about Onsong, inputting songs, sharing and beaming songs….We will learn a little bit more about the fretboard, how to read tab, and some simple 2 and 3 part ukulele instrumentals.

Before you know it, you will be playing at the jam every week!
