August 10: NO MEETING ... It's my 29th (34th) Anniversary

Here's the complete Lesson Plan and Homework Reminder

  • You still have three goals:
  1. Keep practicing!
  2. Work on the songs for next week’s concert.
  3. Make your own TuffUke arrangement of a song of your choice:
    • Start with a great melody (use last week's secret song maybe)
    • Find the real sheet music (with chords)
    • Tab out the melody line
    • Add the chords above the melody line on the paper
    • Play through it until you like the sound
    • Add chords where you can while playing the melody
    • You can use MuseScore (it’s free)
    • You can do it by paper and pencil
    • Be patient … this is wildly difficult and not necessarily for everybody!
