You also proved your sight reading skills on March, which we played without warning!
Next week we'll warm up with:
Dance of the Hours and Oft in the Stilly Night
We will also play Charlie is My Darling WITH FLATPICKS. We need to get back to flat picking in preparation for trememlo flatpicking in a week or two.
Also - begin to work on March on page 42. This is a beautiful and fun song to play. It just take a bit of practice to play all of the runs up and down the scale.
Start with Uke II, and then work on Uke I.
The "tr" means trill and you play it by hammering on and pulling off from the 2nd fret to the 4th fret. It's hard to describe. We'll talk about it in class next week. Don't worry about it while learning the notes.
Listen to your CD to get a feel for the rhythms in this song. When we play it next week, we'll think about what "dynamics" would be good. Loud, soft, lively, short, etc.
OUr friend Lola (Barbara) who used to be in this class would like to host a jam with some folks at her house a couple of times a month. Contact her if you are interested:
