FIDALGO UKULELE NETWORK meets every other week at the Anacortes Senior Activity Center. Our next jam is Sept 27, 1:10 pm. Click “FUN JAM” above, then “jam date” for song list. Easier 2,3,& 4 chord songs start at 1:10; followed by increasingly challenging stuff.
STUART FUCHS once again knocked our ukulele socks off, in his Caribbean workshop and ever-so-amazing community concert, playing guitar for his Brazilian and Spanish songs, and ukulele for some darlin’ old & peppy tunes: attendee participation was frequent and spirited! Stu referenced a Roy Smeck movie; also, folks took photos of some calypso & reggae info on the white board. Go to MUSIC ARCHIVES: click on Stu Fuchs Stuff, to access these things.
KEVIN CARROLL , director of the Austin Ukestra, returns to Anacortes Nov 1, for 2 workshops plus a community concert. The workshops are:
🌴🌺🎶 Intro to Hawaiian Ukulele Advanced beginners thru intermediate: Hawaiian turn-arounds in multiple keys, authentic Hawaiian ‘anticipated” chords, and some sweet songs will be the focus.
😎🎼Ukulele Jazz Band: Join this jazz-based workshop and learn about swing rhythms, syncopation, 6th and 9th chords as we dig into a classic Duke Ellington tune (Which one?? Find out at the workshop!!) And, discover ‘chord secrets’ and put it all together as we tackle the jazz standard Autumn Leaves. This workshop will have something for everyone, but is best for Advanced beginners and beyond. High and low-G friendly.
