November 13 Jam at the Royal

Greetings, Kingston ukulele fans!

The days are getting colder, and the nights longer, but that doesn't matter as long as we have music. And next week is our regular ukulele jam at the Royal. So far, I just have a few songs arranged, from the 1960's, 1970's, and 1990's:

The last one is a fairly easy 3-chord song. When playing it, the strumming pattern is easy: down up down up down up down up. For the chord changes, try to make the change half a beat early.

The first song shouldn't be too difficult either, dominated by a fairly straight-forward 4-chord sequence. Finally, the McCartney song is a bit more challenging, but not beyond the abilities of most uke players.

As usual, we jam in the back room of the historic Royal Tavern, 344 Princess Street. Parking is normally available on Princess Street. Or park in the lot at the back of the Royal, off Brock Street, just past the fire hall. 
The jam starts at 7:30PM. But plan to arrive around 7PM for socializing and a beverage.

Cheers! Hans
