Remember to continue practicing the exercises on 14 and 15 and specifically 3 & 4 on page 14 and 7 & 8 on page 15. I have also attached a C Scale "quiz", like the ones we had for the pentatonic scale, for you to use as a practice tool.
We'll play Lavender's Blue again next week so you have another week to practice the notes.
We will also play Carnival in Venice - key of C, 3/4 time. The slow version of this is on the previous blog. First work on getting the notes in both Uke I and Uke II. Then think about the short and long notes in the song. Stop the sound on the quarter notes followed by a rest. You can stop the sound (on open strings) by very lightly touching the string wtih any finger, or (on fingered notes) by releasing pressure on the string (don't pull the finger all of the way off). Even if you can't yet incorporated that technique into your playing, try it out on single notes.
My Girl is just for your pleasure and practice, using the C Pentatonic Scale for the opening riff.
FYI - The Canote Brothers - A wonderful duo from Seattle - will be presenting a workshop and concert on November 15, St James Prebyterian Church, Workshop at 1:00 ($25.00) and concert at 3:00 ($10.00). The workshop is for all levels: Fun Strums for Everyone. http://www.canote.com
