Event Type

PSA: We are now meeting in person at Ono Brewing Company’s Offshore facility. This meeting is ONLY LIVE. We really hope to see you at Ono Offshore.

Attend smartly. Please respect others around you is all we ask. This location can seat about 50 plus the support staff and NVUS leadership. We’ll give you as much space as we can, given the space we use for both stage and Audio-Visual gear.

Description: This Society meeting is a primer for our Society’s beginners. It may sometimes seem daunting to the very novice but hang in there. Lots of help is all around you. While Moses is the main instructor, Dave B. has volunteered as an assistant instructor who leads lessons on occasion. Other Society members can volunteer to lead this Society meeting.  These instructors may 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
  • Lesson Packages 02 and 03: these basically are the same as 01 but in the keys of F and G, respectively
  • Strums and Rhythms cheat sheets

General Agenda:

  • Scales: certainly C scale but may also cover scales in F and G.
  • Basic major and 7th chords: used many of the jams songs, but in all of our signature songs, and practice exercises.
  • 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
  • Harmonized Chorded Scales: In the key of C – C, Dm, Em, F, G, Am, Bdim, C representing the harmony (chords) for the scale notes.
