The Yamba Ukes started their year off with the first of their beginner jam sessions at the Yamba Marina Cafe, last Friday.
Around 27 budding ukulele players gathered to learn the basics of ukulele playing.
The Yamba Ukes as they call themselves are a group of fun loving ‘ukaholics’ who have been meeting regularly for the last six years.
They are a community based ukulele group of both men and women who love singing and playing their instruments together and come from all walks of life.
Teacher Annie Commerford said that Ukuleles are an easy instrument to play but like any instrument, it takes practice to master it.
“The best thing about ukuleles is that even a sad song can sound happy when played on the uke,” said Annie.
“The beginner sessions will run every fortnight from 2pm to 3pm at the Marina Cafe, at the Yamba boat harbour.
