Glen Rose - Jazzy Blues Workshop
Thursday August 19, 2010 at the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz

Sophisticated Blues with Jazz Ukulele Chords

Get your ukulele to cry out with some jazzy blues sounds. With just a few, easy-to-make jazz chords and patterns, you’ll learn how jazz players create that cool groove when they get together to jam. These hip jazz blues chords and patterns are fun to play and jam on, and have a more sophisticated sound than the usual three-chord blues. Get new rhythm ideas for the jazz blues too.

The ability to play simple bar chords or be willing to try is all that is necessary for this workshop.

Glen Rose is a professional jazz musician and college music teacher with four popular jazz ukulele books published. He leads his “Jazzy Ukulele” workshops around the West Coast and is sponsored by Riptide Ukulele.
