We have selected 10 fantastic Beatles songs for this course which have been re-arranged for ukulele (GCEA tuning) in a way that allows that you discover a wide selection playing techniques from basic and advanced strumming styles to riff picking, alternative chord positions and those fancy licks that define the Fab Four sound.
HOW IT WORKS: Each morning at 8.15am there will be a live, interactive video session via zoom with training for one song per day, but don't panic if you can't make it at that time, as all videos will be recorded and uploaded to your dedicated Facebook group where you can rewatch them over and over any time you like. At the end of each week you will be invited to come along to UCL HQ to jam the songs you have been learning with two options for attending either at 10.30am or 6.30pm on the following Monday after each week. Each meet up session will last no longer than 90 minutes. Some essential restrictions will remain in place with limited spaces for each live session so make sure you state your preferred time to attend the weekly meet ups as places are limited. It is not essential to attend these sessions but you can still train via zoom and join us for the busking session.
Once all 10 songs have been delivered you will get an extra week to practice them before joining the UCL for a mighty Beatles Busking session on Sunday 29th August 2021. (Location TBC).
COURSE INFO: Once you have booked your place on the course you will receive an email (within 24 hrs) containing details about zoom access, a link to your dedicated Facebook group where you can rewatch the zoom videos and download song sheet PDFs with a full schedule for the course.
WARNING: This course is NOT suitable for absolute beginners. It is essential that you have some basic skills experience and knowledge of basic chord shapes and strumming patterns and the ability to understand and read basic tab.
