Ukulele Camp

This weekend is also the Oakridge Ukulele Festival. I participated in a free class for beginners. I decided to purchase the special songbook created for the festival. This artwork of Hilda practicing her guitar is really cute. I have been sitting on the patio with my Ukulele, practicing daily for a few months. I am having so much fun. The Ukulele is easy to play...if you know the guitar, it is really easy. A cute, fun, and inexpensive (all price levels) instrument. The kids would love to have one to learn on...along with you.

These small painted ukuleles can be found for under $30 new.  I got mine at a thrift store for $10. You will need a tuner, and sometime a package deal is available. A case, tuner, and Ukulele for under $ If you are incredibly lucky, maybe someone you know will give you one to start on.

This songbook is my favorite. I know most of the songs, and all the verses are included. I recommend this book, for the ukulele player and for the singers to use for the words. There are many online resources available for free, and take advantage of what is out there.

    My grandmother and great aunt use to pull out their ukes at all the family gatherings . They would play and we would all sing. I was just a kid , but all ages loved it !
