Pick, Pluck, Muffle and Strum: Advanced Percussive Techniques for Ukulele
Dan Scanlan

Dan Scanlan, aka Cool Hand Uke, has been presenting this energetic workshop for the past 14 years. Starting with simple stick rhythms, the session quickly morphs into a variety of strums, rhythmic patterns, picking techniques, glissandolation, trills, cross rhythms, even silence. Bring your uke. Beginners and advanced players alike will get something from this session. A brochure that recaps the workshop will be distributed to attendees.

Dan lives on the Yuba River in Nevada City CA and can be found in cyberspace at www.coolhanduke.com. A ukulele performer since 1961 he currently performs solo, leads the quartet Cool Hand Uke and the Enablers, and directs the 30-member Strum Bums Ukulele Orchestra in Grass Valley CA. He recently released his newest CD, "Ah, Rajão", performed solo on the instrument that is the forerunner of the ukulele.
