Ukulele Workshop: Strummin’ With Jumpin’ Jim Beloff
A dozen or so well-known songs (including ones from the new Daily Ukulele: Leap Year Edition songbook) will be played, while while attendees learn new chords, strums, tips and techniques along the way. Bring your GCEA-tuned uke.
Jim Beloff is the author of The Ukulele—A Visual History (Backbeat Books) and author, arranger, and publisher of the Jumpin’ Jim’s series of ukulele songbooks, distributed by the Hal Leonard Corporation.
Beloff has also recorded several CDs of original songs performed on the ukulele, produced Legends Of Ukulele, a CD compilation for Rhino Records, and made three how-to-play DVDs for Homespun Tapes.
