Here's a chance to take your skills to a new level. A dozen or so more challenging arrangements will be introduced with emphasis on how to smoothly move from one chord to the next. Also, finger-picking patterns, alternate strums and performance techniques will be highlighted. Bring your GCEA tuned ukulele and be prepared to have a lot of fun!
