Nickie Johnson, Craig Barrie

Details

Welcome, introduction of the program and introduction of the presenters in a chat section.

As Harry Belafonte prophetically sang: “Side-to-side, telly-to-telly, it’s a Zoom-bie Jamboree!” Join Nicki and Craig to play, sing and dance together as we shake off the week and look forward to a weekend of music, community, connection and joy. As always, at Grantville’s Friday night we’ll meet the workshop presenters, learn some shareable songs, and have a good chin wag to prepare us for the warmest, dryest, most comfortable and spider-free* Grantville ever! Instruments, costumes, props, toys, pets, sign-making markers and paper all welcome.

*“spider-free” may vary with your viewing location!

Uke techniques

Presenter(s)

Dan Maceoin

Details

Whether you are new to ukulele or have been playing for a long time, the level of cooperation between your left and right hand can make a huge amount of difference to your playing.

Most people can shape a chord with one hand and strum with the other. In this workshop, we will be looking at a few ukulele skills that shine when you have both hands working together.

  • Chucking
  • Sliding
  • Hammering

No, this is not a woodworking course, it is a ukulele workshop!

All levels of ability are welcome, although being fairly confident in playing the basic chords of C, F, G and Am will mean you get the most out of the presentation.

Session Details

I will be using 3 riffs from two different songs to highlight these skills. The riffs are written in TAB form an make an additional attachment to this email. Workshop attendees might benefit from printing up the page at home prior to the workshop although I can share the page during the presentation as well.

How to prepare for this session:

  • Download the songs and handouts. You will need a way of seeing these (either self-printed and lent up against the computer screen, or watching the computer screen, or using a separate tablet)
  • You will need a ukulele
  • Headphones or your speakers turned up enough to hear what is going on.
  • You will also need a single minded dedication to improving your musical skills…nah, just joking, this is the ukulele, we’re going to have fun…and improve your musical skills!

Blues Uke Jam

Presenter(s)

Jen Hawley

Details

Join Jen as she takes you on a journey through the land of acoustic blues uke playing.  We’ll be playing a classic Chicago blues shuffle that we can put to some Elvis songs. For new players we’ll learn easy chords to play. Then the more advanced players can be playing blues riffs and soloing ideas over the top.  All levels and instruments welcome.  Our session key is the people's key of C.  Other instruments are welcome to join the jam!

How to prepare for this session:

  • Download the songs and handouts – although Jen will also ‘screen share’ the music. You will need a way of seeing these (either self-printed and lent up against the computer screen or on a music stand, or watching the computer screen, or using a separate tablet)
  • Tune up your instrument!
  • Set yourself up somewhere quiet; headphones or an external speaker would be very useful.
  • A notepad and pen (yikes!).

  • If you want to participate instrumentally: download the sheet music and recording; and learn the chart in advance.
  • If you want to dance or mime to the music but don’t intend to play an instrument, then just download the recording

Recommend presenters have a computer screen in case I wish to screen share

How to prepare for this session:

  • Download the MP3 backing track, and the pdf files. You will need a way of seeing these (either self-printed and lent up against the computer screen or on a music stand, or watching the computer screen, or using a separate tablet).

The chapel revisited - Ukulele singalong

Presenter(s)

Tanya Nolan and Jane Coker

Details

Make yourself comfy, grab a beer, wine or peppermint tea, tune up the old uke and vocal cords and join Tanya and Jane for 45 minutes of online strumming. Uke songs you’ll love, including favourites from Tanya’s stonking chapel sessions at Grantville in previous years. Some easy songs, some more challenging – who cares? ‘Cos NO-ONE CAN HEAR YOU!!!!!! Just strum and sing along. Participants will be muted while we play the songs because the time lag makes it impossible to play all in sync together, but there will be opportunity for chat between songs too.

How to prepare for this session:

  • Tune up your uke!
  • Headphones or an external speaker are very useful
  • Beer, wine, or mug of tea!
