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!

COST: BUMS members FREE and visitors $5. This includes the Beginners Class.
TIMES: Beginners class at 6:30pm followed by Jam at 7:00pm
NEW for all very new players Dianne Davis and Donna Farrell will hold a Beginners Lesson before the jam at new time 6:00pm. Learn how to hold your uke, how to strum, how to read chord charts and go through some basic chords. This will allow absolutely new players a grasp of basics so they can participate and enjoy the jam.
Most of our songs come from the Internet. Visit our Ukulele Music (in the Ukulele Info menu) for links to Richard G’s songsheets, Bytown songbooks, and many more. The Bytown slow jam songbooks are great for beginners.
