Chord Melody Workshop – Saturday 18 August 2018

Chord Melody Workshop

Chord Melody playing is a method of playing the ukulele solo that includes the melody of the tune along with the chords. This gives a fuller sound and can also give the feeling that there is more than one instrument involved in creating the music.

What we will cover in this workshop:

    • An introduction to reading standard musical notation on the treble clef
    • An explanation of ukulele tabs (tablature)
    • Learn to play 3-4 tunes
    • A guide to arranging tunes to play with this method

This workshop is suitable for players at any level and for either linear tuning (low G) or re-entrant tuning (high g).

DATE: Saturday 18 August 2018
TIME: Registration 1:00pm. Workshop: 1:30pm – 3:30pm with a break. Tea & Coffee supplied. Bar will be open downstairs.
