Fingerpicking the Ukulele workshop with Pete Arnold 2pm & 3.30pm £3 each
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.
Open Mic 5pm Showcase your own talents. Sign up on the day.
