Beatles Booster Ukulele Course - SERIES 2 ONLINE COURSE
SERIES II of the ONLINE Beatles Booster Course will be ready to launch on Monday 2nd September and will feature five classic Beatles hits.
The 5 songs selected for this course 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: Once the course launches you will be invited to set up an account on the website where you can access training material for week one including and introductory video, links to the songs you will be learning, tips for practicing and improving, video tutorials containing elementary breakdowns of each section of the songs with alternative parts suitable for the basic player to more advanced players, PDF worksheets that you can download and use for practice when not online, a downloadable songbook containing all 5 songs and MP3 downloads of each of the UCL arranged tracks for you to practice along too! You will also be invited to join a closed Facebook group for Course participants only. This is a great way to network with other participants and also get in touch with the team for any support issues.
COURSE ACCESS: Once you have signed up to the course you will receive an email containing information about setting up your account and getting prepared for the course. Once the course starts, new material for each song will be released on a weekly basis, usually around 10am on Mondays. Once the 5 weeks material has been issued you will be able to access the content for up to 12 months from the course start date so you can drop in and practice to your hearts content.
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. The Beatles were very keen advocates of breaking the rules of music theory in many of their hits so expect the unexpected! Just to give you an example - the songs contain between 6 - 14 chords so who ever said you can play Beatles music with just 3 chords was seriously deluded!
WHAT NEXT: Once you have purchased your course order you will receive an email within 48 hours, with a list of the 5 songs with links to the Beatles tracks (via Youtube) that you should listen to and familiarise yourself with prior to the course commencement.
JOIN THE JAM: Once you have accessed all content of the course, you will be invited to JOIN THE JAM which is optional, but if you do choose to get involved, instructions will be available at the end of the course. The idea being that you select 1 of the songs you have explored and follow instruction on how to record your version to a set click track. You can then send us the finished recording to mix it into the Global Jam Track with all other course participant entries! Each submission will be credited and the songs will be available for public listening via one of our Soundcloud channels.
TECH SUPPORT: If you come across any issues during the course you can join the secure Facebook group designated for course participants only or get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Responses may take up to 48 hours but we will endeavour to respond as fast as we can!
