Hello everyone!

We had an action packed evening at The New Highwood last night… as always it is great to be able to welcome people just starting out on their ukulele adventure!

Here’s what we did last night…

GIGS

Our next gig is Thursday 30th October from 12pm at The Brackenwood Community Centre. It’s an RVS Social event so should be a good fun

We have also been invited back to play at the Dementia Cafe in Headingley, St Michael’s Road on Monday 24th November 2pm.

If you have any ideas for events/charity fundraisers we could perform at then please let me know!

Hope to see you all very soon

12th February 2014

Well the weather prevented a few people from joining us tonight – but we carried on regardless – and I hope those of you who braved the elements thought it was worthwhile! I certainly did… warmed me up no end!

We looked at one new song this evening and introduced a new technique – finger picking.

I have done a little worksheet here for you to look at (using TAB – please get in touch if you would like me to explain TAB in more detail)

PRACTISING FINGER-PICKING

and then we used this technique to play this classic love song

UNCHAINED MELODY updated feb14

i did a little tutorial for my Otley group when we learned this technique which you may find helpful (although we are plucking the G and A strings on the 1st AND 4th beat of the bar) but we will have another look at this next week!

ta ra for now
