CALL Uke Jams Saturdays
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
For Jams held at cSPACE King Edward, you must be a member of CALL ($50/year).
Tips and Tricks for Newcomers
Are you new to the Ukulele or have forgotten most of what you once knew? Are you a recent graduate of the Happiness Fix?
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!
