We continue to work on exercise and songs to learn the notes of the C scale.
Remember to continue practicing the exercises on 14 and 15 and specifically 3 & 4 on page 14 and 7 & 8 on page 15.
We'll play All Night Long again next week and Lavender's Blue 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 resource page. First work on getting the notes in both Uke I and Uke II. Then think about the short and long notes in the song. Try to 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.
I'm off to Port Townsend tomorrow for the Port Towsend Ukulele Festival. You really should consider this festival next year. Great Staff, beautiful setting, nothing but music, music, music, for several days.
