This jam is led by experienced musicians Paul Morris of Morris Brothers Music and Linda Gough of Ivory Frets Music.
Easy Playing Classics. A relaxing low key jam with easy chords, that’s lots of fun for uke players at all levels, every third Wednesday of the month. It’s also a great opportunity for more experienced players to practise their finger-style technique.
Have you been to a Jam and felt overwhelmed and frustrated that you couldn’t keep up? The Ferny Grove Jam is for you.
Paul and Linda choose popular songs, played at a nice easy (slower) pace. The songs are curated to be fun to sing, with most songs using the most common chords – Am, A7, C, C7, D, Dm, D7, F, G7, G. A friendly crowd if you need a hand just ask!
VENUE: Ferny Grove Bowls Sport & Community Club, 20 Tramway Street, Ferny Grove QLD 4055.
COST: BUMS members FREE and visitors $5. This includes the Beginners Class.
TIMES: Beginners class at 6:00 pm followed by Jam at 7:00 pm
For all very new players, Dianne Davis and Donna Farrell hold a beginners lesson before the jam starting at 6:00 pm. Learn how to hold your uke, how to strum, how to read chord charts and how to play some basic chords. This introduction will give absolutely new players a grasp of the basics that helps them to participate in and enjoy the jam.
