Ukulele Day – Fingerpicking workshop
Part of Diss Ukulele Day, a whole day of Ukulele–based activities.
Using the chords you already know, this workshop will explore a range of ukulele fingerpicking techniques to accompany songs, or play solo instrumental pieces. A few basic techniques can help add variety to your playing and make a change from strumming.
Pete Arnold from The Hub – Diss Music School will run this workshop. Pete also leads the social ukulele group, Ukaholics Anonymous, in Diss.

Their instruments range from guitars, ukulele and keyboards to trombone, washboard and horns – think Waveney Delta meets Mississippi River Roots, meets New O'rleans Street Music!
