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
