In his 13 October workshop, Hal covered the 12 bar blues in C. We learnt shuffles on F and C (but never G7), a turn-around on the G7, and a run down from C using alternate C fingering and the G string. Great ways to create a melodic strumming style for solos. Fans were delighted to be able to purchase Hal’s latest CD, and Manitoba Hal’s Ukulele Blues method booklet on basic blues. If you missed out, they’re available online.
Hal, beautifully broke down the basics of the blues. His relaxed approach and patience kept everyone of varying skill levels interested. His Ukulele Blues Method book covered everything he said and more, great little book!
