Show us your talents and share your skills

January 20, 2010

At the last couple of ukearists we have experimented with setting aside part of the night to individual performances and for folk to teach the rest of us something new on the uke.  This has worked out really well so I reckon we should make it a regular feature at the Ukearist, it certainly adds a bit of variety to the night.

So far we have had performances from myself, Dave and Steven and Chris has taught chunking and 12 bar blues and did a bit about the blues scale for improvising.

I suggest that at around 9pm each night whoever fancies doing a performance or bit of teaching can do so.

This will be a really great for giving any of you interested in performing a friendly and low-pressure environment to do it in and will be really interesting for the rest of us to see what sort of things folk play outside of the ukearist.  I’m also really looking forward to learning new skills from the rest of you.

If you have any other suggestions or comments please share them below.

    Hi all, hope you enjoyed the fairly impromptu songwriting workshops. I was speaking to John and we thought we might try and set up a songwriting group to meet up at a separate time from the regular fortnightly Monday evenings. It would be good to try and arrange something fairly soon. Let us know if you would like to devote some extra time to this.

    That sounds like a great idea, it’ll be interesting to find out what other people are doing outside of class. Wasn’t well last Monday, looking forward to seeing everyone in February and showing off my new uke.
