Hi Phil, if you can't find a group, do what I do in southern Minnesota. Find some friends that play guitar, harmonica, ....... , find a good song you all like (with an easy chord progression) and give it a go.

Bumping this back up to the top since our Strum-Along event is Saturday.

A late addition: Ukulele maker Jack Clark, fresh from the Reno fest, will be displaying his creations.

PS: I don't know what happened to the original poster, I'm afraid he slinked off never to return because so many folks were so harsh to him on another thread.

Any jammers in Nebraska?

The Lincoln Ukulele Group (LUG) began (not so quietly) at the Bess Dodson Walt Public Library on September 28, 2010. We have maintained consistent meetings each month since that time. May 10, 2011 we began meeting at CGS Music 1290 High Street, Lincoln, NE. We "Jam" in a great performance space that is part of this very accommodating full service music store. The Lincoln Ukulele Group has met every 2nd and 4th Tuesday since moving to CGS. Everyone is welcome if you can follow a few basic policies:
- Our common interest is the Ukulele.
- We are to be family friendly:
(i.e. no alcohol use before meetings, use only socially appropriate language, etc.)
- Our Jam sessions are to play the ukulele for fun, which may or may not resemble music.
- We all sit in a circle and play easy, easy, (wait for it) . . . easy songs.
- NO one is expected to learn or play any chord out of their comfort level.
- Our jams are to be a safe place, free from recording devices, where people can comment freely. and openly take pride in playing the wrong chord.
If this sounds like you, bring your ukulele, your friend, your spouse, your child, and your grandparent to our next "jam session." Google us at "Lincoln Ukulele Group" where you can join, leave a basic profile, check out our "Files" and "Calendar" for additional events.
Come Join us. We are L.U.G.-Nuts.
