Musical Instrument AKA The Rolling Bones

Our next session Thursday 21st March 2019

Not had much time to think of the content but a new development in that Marian with Candice are with some of our players to start a Guitar Beginner class in an adjacent area of the Miners at the start of our Thursday session. It will be along the lines of how the Ukulele group helped new starters on Ukulele where Les Harris led the group for a 30 minute or longer session and then joined the main group later. Hence this will commence at our next session and there will be two spare Guitars available for anybody who would like to play in this inner group session.

Maybe the main group could work on some previous songs which we have previously covered but still require more work on such as:- Here Comes the Sun, I print below a simplified version from the Ultimate Guitar website which I find easier to play. Also on the 3rd and 4th pages is an even more simple chord arrangement with a Capo on the 7th VII Fret which creates a Mandolin sound maybe this would work better with Ukuleles playing the same chord ?

Also I have copied easy alternatives for the B chords in general if you find any particular chord difficult just Google easy “” guitar chord and you will be presented with a number of easier chord shapes to get the sound close enough to the optimum.

In addition, we could work on California Dreamin, “ Leavin on a Jet Plane “ Blowin in the Wind ? these 3 numbers are compatible as a set.

Please feel free to suggest other numbers and send copy to me and I will deseminate.

See you soon.

Future session dates of 2019 are:-

March 21st - April 4th and April 18th

Thanks for all your enthusiasm and looking forward to seeing you all soon -- “ the coolest group in U3A “…………………………………………

Best Regards
