Ukulele Chord Studies
This workshop will
begin with some basics for beginners, but will also present some challenging
songs for homework. Songs will be used as studies of 2-chord songs,
3-chord songs, 4-chord songs, etc. Please tune your ukes to GCEA before
class. Baritone ukes are tuned differently, so the chord charts will
not be useful for baritone players. If you have a portable music stand,
bring it; there's no guarantee that the classroom will have desks or
tables. Several songs will be distributed in paper copies.
Erich Sylvester likes to sing all kinds of songs with a ukulele. His
newest CD is a collection of hapa haole Hawaiian pop/jazz songs featuring
four virtuoso steel guitar players. The CD is under the band name Hot
Steel & Cool Ukulele. The band will perform the CD songs on Saturday
at 5:00 pm on the Lead Belly Stage (room #333).
