Description: This Society meeting is a primer for our Society’s beginners to advanced (yes, advanced can both help and potentially learn new things). It may sometimes seems daunting to the very novice, but hang in there. Lots of help is all around you. While Moses is the main instructor, Dave B. and a few others have volunteered as an assistant instructors.  They will sometimes lead lessons. Any one of the designated instructors may lead this Society meeting.  They’ll also help those attending this session practice the signature songs using the 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

  1. Starting in 1. Go to the chat and download the song files we’ll be using during the Lessons

  2. A reminder for all — you have to download the Zoom application (not go through the browser interface). Then you need to sign up for a free account on Zoom — remember this ID (usually your email) and password. Then when you click on the link from your email or this site, it should start your application (not the browser interface) and automatically sign you into the Zoom session.

    And the Zoom ID (with embedded password) that only works after you sign into Zoom (also done automatically, most of the time). So, when you get a Password request, verify that it’s the application — I think it’s Zoom site asking and not the Zoom App (see above paragraph).
