Being able to hear and identify chord progressions will go a long way toward demystifying music. Before you know it you’ll be hearing and recognizing dominant seven and diatonic chord progressions. This exciting workshop will open your ears to the way all songs work around the Circle of 5ths. Knowledge of chords C F G7 A7 D7 E7 Am Dm Em is helpful.

5:15 Workshop: Uke By Ear Jam (All Levels)
When people take up the ukulele they want to play songs right now! In this fun and interactive workshop you’ll learn to do just that. Starting with the basics of rhythm and timing, Jim will lead the group through popular songs from one to four chords in structure, in the genres of rock, pop, folk and blues. This is the fast track to also learning how to play together with others in a group by ear.
