Online Beginners’ Jam

When and Where

Beginners’ jams will be on Fridays from 7:00 to 8:30 pm until further notice. We will be using Zoom. You have to be on the mailing list (click the link in the menu) to receive the invitation with all the info you need to join the jam.

What to Expect

We will spend a few minutes on basics like how to hold your ukulele, how to strum it. a few basic chords, how to practice changing chords.

Then we will do a few exercises to help you get your fingers moving.

Then we will play songs. Here are lists of songs from 3 sources.

First, the UkeAnnapolis song folders. These songs can be downloaded from the Google Drive at this URL: UkeAnnapolis Google Drive

UPDATED Second, The Jim Beloff “Daily Ukulele”, 365 song edition (yellow cover). If you don’t already own this book, it is worth purchasing.

UPDATED Third, The Jim Beloff “Daily Ukulele” 366 song edition (blue cover). As you will see, there are few simple songs in this book, so I don’t advocate hurrying to buy it.

Also, look at the handout we used for a beginners’ ukulele class, and in particular, watch Bernadette Teaches Music’s Thirty Day Challenge.

Who Should Come

This jam is intended for beginners. More experienced players are welcome, of course, but do not expect a challenge.

See you there! Be safe!
