Ukulele Day – Blues Workshop

Venue: The Corn Hall

Pete Arnold will run this workshop. Pete is a founder member of Ukaholics Anonymous, in Diss and teaches Ukulele, Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin and Bass at The Hub - Diss Music School. 

This workshop is for people who know basic ukulele chords (eg. C F G7) and would like to further their understanding and ability to play Blues on a ukulele. Blues is the foundation of Rock and Roll, Rock, Jazz and other popular music forms. It follows a repeated 12 Bar structure, which makes it easy for jamming along with friends.

We will look at:-

  • Playing chords over the 12 Bar Blues pattern
  • Using chord variations, including Barre Chords to accompany Blues songs
  • Rhythm and strumming patterns, including the Boogie Woogie Shuffle
  • Simple riffs and solos, using the Minor Pentatonic Scale
  • Putting it all together to play a Blues song together

All examples shown will be emailed in .pdf format to those participants who provide an address. 

The workshop will run twice (at 2.00 and again at 3.30) to allow people to take part in the Singing Workshop, too. 

Part of a whole day of ukulele activities organised by Ukuleles Anonymous. Don't miss the evening gig.
