    Default Hi from Seattle

    Hi!

    I’ve been learning since June 2017! Keeping my ukulele acquisition mostly in check. I am starting to practice songs for Christmas. I also do some woodworking, so I’m hoping to have a ‘built by me’ uke by Christmas.

    Hi, Uncle Rod here.

    STRUM ( Seattle's Totally-Relaxed Ukulele Musicians) meets every Wed evening, 6-8p at the Kona
    Kitchen Restaurant, 85th and 5th NE, about a mile south of Ngate Mall on 5th NE. Please come
    and join us.

    a local luthier, Kerry Bannister, often joins us.

    I purchased a Martin Soprano 'hybrid' [Martin Soprano fretted neck on a new koa body] from Kerry.
    He may be able to give you a few hints from his vast experience

    Please don't be concerned by the name of our group as all levels and styles of uke players are welcome
    to join us. No worries about a songbook. We project the songs onto a screen so we're all on the
    same page... literally

    keep uke'in',

    What did you think of the jam session? Although I only recognized a song (or two) when I attended for the first time a week ago, I found it a great way to practice strums and chord progressions.
