    Default Any ukulele players in Auckland interested in meeting up for a jam?

    Hello, my name is Chrissy,

    Three weeks ago I brought my first ukulele and have begun learning basic chords and songs. Iím really interested in practicing with other ukulele players both beginners and experienced either on a regular basis or even a once off.

    I live in Epsom and would ideally like to get a group of Uke players to practice perhaps once a week!?

    Sound like you, get in contact with me to discuss times and location.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon

    Cheers,

    Chrissy

    Good luck with getting jam mates. It may take some time if a group already does not exist.

    Hey Chrissy! Welcome to UU

    I'm in Wellington so can't be much help, but I believe you can hunt some people down here:
    http://groups.google.com/group/auckl...ulele-network/

    If you're on Facebook, add KiwiUkulele to your likes, and if you don't already have that book - get it!

    I'll be in up in Auckland next weekend but I'll be there for work, so I might be a bit too exhausted to meetup, I'm not sure I'll even have any time for uking so I might not even bring one up

    Hey Whetu,

    Thanks for the link to the uke groups in Auckland, ill be sure to contact them and see if i can join in. I have indeed invested in the KiwiUkulele book and have found it VERY helpful!

    Hope you get good weather in Aucks, its very much hit and miss these days. If you do get time and feel like a jam, let me know, id be keen.

    Thanks again,

    Chrissy

    I hope I get good weather too! I spent a lot of time in Auckland as a kid (well, North Shore really - Birkenhead/Birkdale/Beachaven/Northcote kind of area, with a bit of Glenfield, Takapuna and Greenhithe depending on which uncle/aunty I was visiting), so I hope there's no tornados to ruin my day

    We had an odd summer down here in Wellington, it was otherwise very mild compared to the rest of the country, but then we had some random shockingly muggy days... they'd be something like 22 degrees when everyone else was moaning about 28 degrees, but we'd have 95% humidity and 0 wind. In the windy city - where is the bloody wind when you need it!?

    Anyway, as I understand it, the office I'll be working in up there is in Ellerslie, and I don't imagine our hotel will be too far from that, so it's in your neck of the Auckland sprawl

    Hi all, I know it has been a while since this thread began, but I am keen to jam with a group if you guys are still jamming together...I have played the uke off and on for the last few years, but that said I am no expert. I currently live in St Johns so am rather close to the city...Hope to hear from you soon!
