Uke Chords that Work Anywhere on the Neck
Saturday, June 8, 2013, 1:00pm
Music 1 - Room #108
You've paid for that whole neck of that little ukulele, so why not make use of what you've already paid for? This workshop is an introduction to "closed chords" where every string has a finger attached. Taking only 3-5 chord shapes, Janet will talk about where to place these and attach names and songs to them that work. Tenor and concert ukuleles are best suited for moving around the neck but the same chord shapes can be used on soprano and baritone ukes as well. We'll start with 2 and 3 chord songs for a starting point.
Janet Lenore has been teaching ukulele classes in the Bay Area for the past two years. She first taught guitar while still in high school, so it's been a long comeback to one of her earliest careers. She has taught uke workshops at for the Santa Cruz Uke Club's Burning Uke and twice for Sonoma County's "Ukes On the Loose" workshops. She's been a jam leader at both the Berkeley and Alameda Ukulele Clubs. She's a performing singer/songwriter who also plays mandolin, banjo, and percussion besides ukulele and guitar. Her partner, Jeff Davis, will assist at her workshop on the uke-bass.
