If you missed Joe Crowley’s first ukulele workshop featuring the
strumming style of George Formby, be sure to get in on the this one
(back by popular demand!) on Saturday, June 23, 1:30-3:30 at the
Ottawa Folklore Centre (OFC)! Mark and I took the workshop and it was
terrific - Joe was an excellent instructor.
Joe will focus only on two main areas of the general technique –
1) right hand strumming – the split, triple and fan stroke
2) left-hand chording distinctives – finger pull off’s, and hammer-
on’s over the chords.
You'll practice a couple of basic 2-3 chord chart progressions (or a
simple G.Formby song). So sign up and add some ‘Formby spice’ to what
you already know!
$20 OFC members, $25 non-mem. WKSHP12-15
