WORKSHOP
“Learn Any Song by Ear”

The most popular vote by far was,
“I would be happy with any of the workshops!”

“Learn Any Song by Ear”
won by a narrow margin over “Slide Ukulele”.

  • Have you ever heard a song and really wanted to play it but couldn’t find chords online?
  • Or found chords only to feel that they weren’t correct?

In this workshop you will learn how to figure out the chords and rhythm to any song you can hear – using only a cheap chromatic tuner and a “circle of fifths” in the handout.

There will be some music theory involved but nothing too difficult to remember.

* Suitable for all ukuleles and all skill levels.


Also, see this blog post from last year – Hal’s last workshop was fully booked.  The way tickets are flying out the door for this one, “back by popular demand” is putting it lightly!

Whether you are getting yourself revved up for this workshop or just want a great primer on how to play Blues Ukulele – see Manitoba Hal’s “Ukulele Blues Method Book“! Hal revised this for his UK Tour last year – hopefully he will be bringing more copies along this time!


As last year . . .

Manitoba Hal’s UK Tour has been organised by those wonderful, groovy people behind Northern Uke – the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival!

Clever monkey! Manitoba Hal Newcastle Workshop – Mailchimp Newsletter!

Gmail can get very sniffy about sending out an email to a bunch of people at the same time.  . . . “Are you a spammer?” . . . NO!  . . . “Well we think you are! Petition us, you wretch, plea for mercy, or we will continue to block you . . . and maybe worse!”

Mailchimp, clever monkey, speaks no such evil!

So now I can send an email update “newsletter” to the folks who have booked on the Manitoba Hal Blues Uke Workshop in Newcastle on 4 June:

Manitoba Hal Workshop Updates - Newcastle 4 June 2014 New edition of Hal's Ukulele Blues Method Book. Book updated for Hal's UK Blues Uke Workshop Tour! Manitoba Hal's Ukulele Blues Method Edition 2, Spring 2014 Hal has updated his Ukulele Blues Method book for the UK Tour. Cost: £10 There will be copies on sale on 4 June immediately after the Workshop - to anyone who wants one, not just workshop participants. The digital version costs £4.99 - for download from Hal's Store on Etsy There will be no workshop handouts. (I think I know why, now!) I must admit that I am rather tempted to by the digital version, to get in a bit of practice before the workshop! If you bought tickets on behalf of others, please do forward this email to your friends in case they have not already received it. Further updates for Workshop Participants to follow as and when I get details (there will be free UK Tour badges, CD's for sale, etc.) Lizzie
