Another great bunch of ukulele players, good singing and a very intense second half... I hope you’ve all recovered from overload! Best wishes to all and here's to the next time!
Thanks to everyone who came and spent the day learning and strumming. Great fun and and lots of great playing but I don’t know how that American guy at the back got in-(didn’t even know he played the ukulele!)
Another wonderful welcome and full classes at this year’s Braemar Arts Festival. Thanks to Liz and Duncan, Marilyn and Richard and all the gang for a great time.
Ukulele day at Gartocharn

The GFW Very Slow Session is now fortnightly at Cafe Siempre in Dumbarton Rd.
Siempre Bicycle Cafe
I lead this session, mainly for people who find the speed of most pub sessions a bit alarming. The same 50 or so tunes are played every time, mostly at half speed. All the music, chords sound files and fingering can be found here
Very Slow Session
It’s a nice friendly safe space for those who need some thinking time when playing session tunes! Have a coffee or a beer while you play!
