If you haven't experienced a Uke Fest.. you are missing loads of fun. Here's your chance to spend the whole weekend immersed in ukulele. When: June 25th - 27th.
Dusty Strings always has a great showing of some of the best ukulele teachers/players around. Don't let being a beginner stop you from joining in.
If nothing at all... I strongly encourage you to come to the Uke Fest Concert on Saturday at 7:30.
Jim D'Ville's Friday warm-up work shop... teaches you how to use your ear.. when playing... hearing those chord progressions.
Ralph Shaw from BC... is not only fun to watch... but his strumming techniques says for the intermediate.. but I think what I showed you back in May... this will just add to that.
Other great locals are Casey McGill.... he is the master of the swing era. Jere Canote.... more strums from a folk song angle. Matt Dahlberg... is another local guy... with some fine techniques to share.
For imported talent you can't beat James Hill.... I believe one of the best ukulele players, dare I say in the world... but he's still able to take a subject and bring it down to all levels. He's a master... and all say 'one of the best teachers to learn from'.
Also, Kimo Hussy is the Hawaiian connection... a soft speaking man of immense talent... and the ability to convey what he knows in a clear manner. A master of easy chord progressions.
