Great session at the Belle Vue in High Wycombe again yesterday evening

Posted: June 7, 2012 in Sessions and clubs, Ukulele

Another great evening was had by all present and we even got some applause from the main bar. Yep we knocked out a few of the old favourites again but what makes this session so special is that Martin takes every opportunity to introduce us to those little techniques and chord embellishments that can transform the mundane to something much more interesting and entertaining. Yesterday we were all ‘pushing’ chords like mad and its amazing how such a simple technique can make your playing sound so much more ‘Formbyish’.

The other great thing about this session is that Martin’s mate, Sparky, from their terrific blue grass band Papa Truck is generally around to add his unique vocal style to the proceedings. Ever heard ‘I’m a believer’ sung in cod-opera style?
