On 25 May 2019 at Coorparoo, a small dedicated group of baritone ukulele players gathered to learn more about their craft. If you’re at all interested in branching in baritone, look out for Garry’s next workshop. This is what Di had to say about May’s.
We were promised a baritone ukulele workshop that would cater to a wide variety of skills, and Garry Collins certainly delivered.
At his workshop, Garry started out with the basics and progressed to some chord theory, arpeggiated fingerpicking and 12 bar blues.
Garry demonstrated various additional skills and styles and was able to answer any questions, and scaffold the use of those ideas that captured our interest, such as Malagueñas style. The framework allowed for questions, and allowed the time and opportunity to move around workshopping with other players utilising these new skills, playing songs, and networking. The format included a fantastic mixture of structure and open-ended learning opportunities. Diane Davis
