Blandford Ukulele Group
BUG teaches people to play the ukulele!
Please see our Facebook page for current information.
7-8pm Baby BUG: This is the starting place for everyone new to making music.
8-9pm Big BUG: This is the regular group.
9-10pm Advanced BUG: Further techniques.
All attendees are free to stay for all or any sessions during an evening for £5.
We play almost any performance we’re asked to do, so please ask if you’d like us at your event. All participation by group members is voluntary but encouraged!
A decent tuner costs about £6 on Amazon. Smartphone apps are often free but I generally recommend a clip-on tuner since it will pick up the instrument's vibrations even in a noisy room. This video is good too: (it's great for ear-training):
Buying a uke
t I recommend buying new and trying instruments out before you buy. The Southern Ukulele Store in Boscombe has a great range (tell them you're part of a uke group to get a discount), Absolute Music in Bournemouth, or Harmony Music in Dorchester.
If you have a very cheap uke, change the strings for about a fiver: Aquila Nylguts are good.
