Participants will learn the basics of the uke including the parts of the instrument, tuning, beginning chords, and simple songs. Next, learn to play every song ever written (well, 90% of them, anyway) with the Fantastic Four Chords and find out how to switch (transpose) keys in easily. 3-Hour Online Ukulele Strum Workshop for Confident Beginners:In "Essential Strums", you will learn to play a variety of strums including folk, calypso, rock, polka, ska, reggae and the incredibly versatile Benstrum using some of your favorite songs. Then, during “Strike a Chord”, you'll take your playing to another level by learning to play chords in various ways including moveable/barre chords, power chords, and other inversions. Both workshops are great for players who want to differentiate their sound when playing with others.
