Hi everyone.
October is "ukulele month" at High Strung, and for the next three Sundays there will be uke workshops at 2 p.m., starting with an introduction to uke class for complete beginners tomorrow, and capping off with Lil' Rev's workshop on October 31st. You can register for any of the workshops through High Strung:

Here are the details:

Intro to uke, Part I
Sunday, October 17th, 2-4 p.m.
This is the class for new ukulele players. Come join us if you've just started playing and want basic info about chords, how to read chord diagrams, how to play simple melodies, etc. Or send your friends who have been eyeing your ukulele jealously and claiming that they've "always wanted to play a musical instrument." Having your own uke helps, but is not required for this class!
Cost: $20

Intro to uke, Part II
Sunday, October 24th, 2-4 p.m.
This class is for anyone who came to the Part I class, or who has been playing just a little while and is familiar with the very basics of the uke, such as names of the strings, a few chords, and wants to learn a little more. We'll play more melodies, learn some strum rhythms, and have a good time!
Cost: $20

Blues tunes and licks with Lil' Rev
Sunday, October 31st, 2-3:30 p.m.
Learn essential blues strums, patterns, licks and scales, as well as secrets to improvisation, Boogie, Woogie, Jug-Band Tunes, Hokum, Chicago Blues, Shuffles, Jazzy Blues Licks, Turnarounds and much more. Open to all levels. We will use tab, live demo and Q and A. Bring a recorder if you have one!
Cost: $25
