THERE WILL BE NO CLASS NEXT WEEK but the week after (Dec.2) we will play again While strolling Through the Park One Day so keep working on the strum, the notes and (if you dare) the high harmony. We will also begin to work on Dance of the Hours - In the Uke I part, Playing in Bb and finding your "finger dance" around the fret board will be a good challenge. Listen to the recording to help with the rhythm.
In the Uke II, you have two options: Play the top notes and the bottom notes separately (like we do in Bella Bocca Polka), or try to play both notes at once. You will have to find the notes on alternate strings sometimes but once you find the pair of notes in each phrase, you only have to slide down one fret, then back up, to complete the phrase.
We'll work on this next week then have it as a practice piece for the break. We will also introduce tremelo flat picking so you can work on that over the holiday.
Also, continue to practice Bella Bocca Polka for our performance on Dec 6 at the BUG Jam.
See you on Dec 2.
