Want to learn to play instrumental solos on the ukulele? How about learning some of the basics of how to make your own arrangements? In this 4 week class, we’ll learn some arrangements that I’ve prepared for you. You’ll also learn some techniques and so some exercises to help you understand how to begin arranging a tune yourself. To help you master playing these lovely instrumentals, you’ll get access to Soundslice online learning tools that make practicing really effective and enjoyable.
- Easy solo arrangements of popular songs
- How to combine the melody with chords.
- A few strategies for fleshing out and decorating our basic arrangements.
This workshop is open to anyone who is interested, though it is helpful if you have taken have some experience reading either tablature notation or standard notation for the ukulele.
