Hello uke players this is an intermediate class; for those people that want to do more than strum.
We have picking patterns, riffs for various songs and a bit of easy stuff to give you a break in concentration! The music can be found here (just click on the links below and print out or download music before class). We will sort into break out groups for the songs marked in ***. So when you enter the zoom session let us know if you want to be the easier group (picking melody) or harder group (chord melody).
Riders on the Storm
Listen to this song, we will be playing this!
We will be doing a Bruce Springsteen song “Im on Fire”. Check out this beautiful version by The Staves.
And of course we must remember the great Little Richard, died at 87 from bone cancer. Vale the pioneer of rock n roll!

If you are Australian but don’t yet want to commit to a uketen, you can pay a casual fee of $17 via Direct Deposit.
International Zookestrans are asked to go to this page to organise payment (through Stripe).
