for those that dont know AAR is "after action report"

if you have some pics that i dont have up, PM me the link to where the pics are hosted and ill add them to the post here. also, if you have any suggestions for the next jam session, post them up here as well so i can make preparations toward them. thanks to everyone for coming!!!

my account of the day...

so just so we didnt get there toooo early and really regret it, bugoy and i packed the stuff up and hung out at guitarcenter for a couple hours hehehe. we got to the spot around 4pm. that was still waaaaay too early. but i didnt want to take a chance at looking stupid by setting up a jam session bonfire and have no fire pit. haha.

dafamcallsmebj showed up a little later. so we started to jam a little. then wearymicrobe passes by. just so happened to be finishing up his jog. so he left and came back later. around 6pm there are about 6 of us sitting around a small fire waiting for people to hopefully show up early. then comes 8pm and soliman had to leave. it was too bad, because around 815pm everyone started to show up.

from here ill just let the pictures tell the story. but before that i want to say thanks to rayan and aldrine for giving us a call and saying hi to show their support. also, i must give a BIG THANKS to bruddahmark for all his participation and getting everything rolling. he went around to everyone and made sure they knew the chord progressions, he showed his talent with his facemelting solos, and just an all around cool bruddah. if i can say one thing... i truly believe that everyone that participated in some way in those jams walked away a better uke player. i know i did. i know bugoy did. we need to do this again!

Looks like you guys had a great jam. Mann I wish the one I've been planning could work out but it seems mostly everyone's busy. Hopefully we can arrange one over spring break. You got any vids you guys jamming?

Those pictures are some of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. This is EXACTLY what Ukulele Underground is all about. Thank you everybody who showed up to the first UU meet up! Thank you Arvin(nukeDOC) for arranging it. The next one you guys have, UU will sponsor it so you guys will have some snacks and drinks and hopefully some free stuff to take home.

If anyone else anywhere else in the world wants to organize a UU meet up, PM me. We'll try to help you anyway we can.

Thanks to everyone for showing up. I feel like there was at least 10-15 people with ukes at one point....anyone count? I was stoked to just watch everyone jamming. There was some real talent there! Some good voices too.. BJ and Arvin....among others..

So..when is the next jam??

We should all agree on 3 or 4 songs to learn in advance so when we all go in to the jam session, we can play along. I felt bad because I was learning the chord transitions to a couple of those songs while everyone was playing..and....I was killing it....in a bad way..haha.

Maybe a BBQ even next time. Adult sodas maybe next time...just no under-age consumption of course..

Again....thanks everyone........SD represent!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeh.....I introduced myself as Nate.....wearing the AIRMERICA black hoodie. My girlfriend was there too...

Peace..

Ok so lets start seeing some suggestions for the next one!!! I know Micro suggested that we post up some chord progressions for everyone to learn so by the time of the session were all on the same page. i think thats a great idea. We can also suggest songs to learn as well. but we'll always have honey baby! haha! so lets hear 'em guys. lets make the next session 10 times better!

OBTW, i wanted to say thanks to Ryan and Aldrine for making a guest telephone appearance! that was pretty awesome!

wow that looked like fun. its cool cuz as im looking at these pictures, i got a smile on my face haha. and whats even better is that there was more than just ukes. although its a UU meeting, having other instruments also adds in more depth(?) when jamming together. good job guys!

Hey! Just wanted to say thanks to the local UU braddahs for putting together the Friday evening jam and everyone who showed up. It was a lot of fun, kinda like a backyard jam but no kaukau?

Hey y'all -- new guy around here and I'm so sorry I didn't check out this site sooner or I might have made it to this jam -- my loss!

Anyways, in addition to my uke addiction, I play djembe drums twice a month with a drum circle at the beach in Newport/Balboa. We play all year long and thru the cold months there's still usually 15-20 people and the summer months get NUTS.

I always show up with 4 or 5 drums to share, so we could definately travel some sound yeah? I live at the south end of Orange County so it's certainly within my range to not a bad trip to come down and bring some drums and other extra noise makers and strum with y'all.

Perhaps down the road (maybe in one of the summer months) organize a merged event. Anyways, would love to hear some input on this -- and definately hook me up on the next session!

Have fun!
