NoteAll NVUS Primer schedules kept to 3:15-3:45 pm at sponsor’s request

Description: This Society meeting is a primer for our Society’s beginners. It may sometimes seems daunting to the very novice, but hang in there. Lots of help is all around you. While there is always a main Society instructor on the stage, there are other more advanced Society members to help the main instructor.  Moses Kamai is the main Society instructor who has David Bartell, Christy Kinder, Larry Burke, Jessica Suchecki, and others help and sometimes lead lessons. Any one of the these may lead this Society meeting.  When available, they will also help those attending this session practice the signature songs using these basic chords. It will start 45 min before any of our main scheduled meetings (e.g. 2nd Sunday NVUS Group Lessons or 4th Sunday NVUS Jams).

Suggested readings:

  • Lesson Package 01: at a minimum (click here).
  • Lesson Packages 02 and 03: these basically are the same as 01 but in the keys of F and G, respectively (click here for lesson 2 and here for lesson 3)
  • Strums and Rhythms cheat sheets [basically any cheat sheet or primer in the File Folder – Lesson Pamphlets, Booklets, and Sheets are useful for a Primer:  //www.nova-uke.org/downloads/#63-lesson-pamphlets-booklets-sheets –> click here]
  • NVUS Songbook Chord (progression) [basically a songbook crib sheet of chords — still need a chord chart or chord book if you don’t know the chords — best is to look at your other Society member’s hands and maybe ask them later:  To go to the folder click here]

General Agenda:

  • Scales: See the Lesson Packages which have scales C, F, and G as part of the lesson.
  • Basic major and 7th chords: used many of the jams songs, but in all of our signature songs, and practice exercises.  (TBP – to be published)
  • Chorded Scales: In the key of C – C, G7, C, F, C5, F, G7, C representing the harmony (chords) for the notes sung as do, re, mi, fa, and so on.   (See the Lesson Packages which have scales C, F, and G as part of the lesson)
  • Harmonized Chorded Scales: In the key of C – C, Dm, Em, F, G, Am, Bdim, C representing the harmony (chords) for the scale notes. (See the Lesson Packages which have scales C, F, and G as part of the lesson)

Will continue to review techniques of songs on our Society’s set list. Hope you come and join us both at this Society’s Primer and then on stage in Vienna for ViVA Vienna. Ono Brewing Co. is hosting our Full Dress Rehearsal — whole Society, whole set twice if we want! May 25th for Ono’s, then May 26 the real deal!!!
