Merry Christmas Eve! I
look forward to playing with you today!
(But, no class on Christmas Day.)
I will see you again on Saturday, Dec 26th!
If you have been participating since the beginning of the Fall Semester, please take the time now to asses where you are at with the 14 Fall Songs, see below, this way we can move on. Yipee!
For the next week, we will keep "Alud Lang Syne" in our mix so you can play it for your family on New Year's Eve!
Help Session for New Players: 1:50pm - 2:15pm PST
Especially good for brand new folks, today, we will begin at 1:50pm. If you need help with anything, please come at this time. We can work on the C Scale, the chords for Wagon Wheel, & start the chords for Edelweiss!
Have fun on your own with the YouTube link below to find the notes in our own personal vocal range. We'll see which octave on a keyboard those notes fall into. We will find those notes and those octaves on our ukulele fretboard. Reminder: Send us an email with your "High note and Low note" of your Vocal Range after using the YouTube video below.
Please go to this great YouTube video by Ronja Petersen and find your vocal range. Then, use her corresponding PDF to record your vocal range:
Beginner Class: 2:15pm - 3:05pm PST:
We've had fabulous recital performances by Kathy, John, Julie, Alicia, Gene, Chris, Wendy, Lisa, Neva, Susan & Richard & Linda M! There were SUPER entertaining and inspiring! It was obvious they rehearsed a lot! Wow! We will have more each day over the next several days. Those who participated in the Summer Semester are playing a song, or a portion of a song, without looking at the paper ... with the intention of "delivering the message" of the song. We are all so excited to see more performances today and in the coming days!
Monday, December 21st at 2:02amPacific Time was Winter Solstice! That means we have started our new semester of songs!
See pdf below for "Edelweiss" & "Wagon Wheel." Thank you to John for bringing the Edelweiss from THE AMAZING Craig and Sarah! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igeWunrJVYs
Reminder: Each person who participated in the Summer Semester of 14 Songs needs to select one song and memorize it. Then, between Dec 15th and Dec 23rd perform it for the group as a solo,"Off-Book!!!
