Title: An afternoon with the Ukulele Lady
Post by: Tom on July 20, 2013, 02:39:17 AM
The Delta Strummers spent an interesting afternoon with Michelle kiba, a talented ukulele player and teacher. Michelle, known as the Ukulele Lady (http://www.ukalady.com), drove up from Santa Cruz to present a workshop for 20 of our members who chose to attend. The focus was on Hawaiian songs, correct pronounciation of Hawaiian lyrics, strumming techniques, and fretboard variations, which together help create the wonderful Hawaiian sound.

I hadn't heard some of the songs before, and some of the chords were also new to me. Clearly, I need to do some practicing before the next workshop  :-[
