The Sun Lakes Ukulele Group, led by Cottonwood Palo Verde resident, Nancy Harrison, will kick off its third season on October 23. We meet on the first and third Sundays of the month to learn songs, chords, strums, fun licks and tricks on the ukulele.
The fee for each session is $3, and the group is open to everyone. The beginner session runs from 1:00-1:45 p.m., and the Intermediate/Advanced Jam session is from 2:00-3:30 p.m. Beginners (with standard tuning ukuleles) will need to purchase the beginner book for $11 (available at the first session). Intermediates (standard tuning and baritones are welcome in this group) will use a combination of handouts, the Sun Lakes Ukulele Songbook ($10) and The Daily Ukulele, 365 Songs for Better Living compiled by Liz and Jim Beloff, available at many local music stores or through Amazon.com for around $25.
If you have a ukulele in playable condition (which means that the tuning pegs work, don’t slip, and the strings are relatively new) please come and join us. If you’re just curious, we’d love to have you drop in, share the fun, and see if the ukulele is for you.
Upcoming sessions are October 23, November 6, November 20, December 4, December 18, January 8, January 22, February 5, February 19, March 5, March 19, April 2 and April 16.
