Join Bozeman Ukulele Cabaret for a a free ukulele lesson and workshop Sunday, Nov 2 at the Bozeman Public Library from 1-3:00 pm
1pm-1:30pm: Beginner Crash Course
A 30-minute crash course for first-time beginners. (NOTE: This will be the EXACT SAME crash course as last time, so if you came last time, you may not want to attend again. It is for first-time-ever players to learn basic strumming and fingering for a few easy chords.)
1:30-2:00: WORKSHOP: Songs of the 1920s and 30s with Geoff Gamble
Guest presenter Geoff Gamble will lead a workshop for more experienced players featuring songs from the 1920s and 30s. He will demonstrate some barre chords and focus on the ukulele sound that was wildly popular throughout the jazz age. If you have mastered C, G, F etc., want to learn a few new chords, and are ready for something new, this is for you!
For those who like to get a jump on the chords, attached are PDFs of two songs that Geoff plans to teach.
2:00-3:00 Play-Along Time
As time allows, after the workshop, players of all levels can join in a casual ukulele play-along.
We will focus mostly on oldies. Most will feature pretty easy chords!
A few last notes:
Song sheets with chord charts will be provided! All are welcome!
Those who don’t have a ukulele can reserve a loaner for a suggested donation of $5. (Submit the contact form below to reserve)
Future First Sunday Ukulele session times and locations will be announced soon! We’re working on a holiday caroling event in early December. Details to come!
