You just got a uke, and are ready to have some fun but feel a bit overwhelmed?
This workshop is for people who have just got a ukulele and don’t know where to begin. Donna Farrell will teach you the absolute basics.
• How to hold, tune and strum
• How to read chord diagrams
• How to make the chord shapes for the most used chords
By the end of this workshop you will have played several 1,2,3- and maybe even 4-chord songs. Handouts will be provided which will allow you to take your new uke away and start practising.
