Effingham Ukes
During the lockdown we have continued to meet each Tuesday from 10.30am to 12 noon using the Zoom conferencing application. After a bit of experimentation, we found that the best way to run our sessions was with the group leader leading the singing/playing and all other participants muted. To make it easier to play-along, the group leader plays backing tracks. This approach has the added benefit that, other than the poor leader, no one can hear your mistakes or off-key singing.

We plan to reinstate our regular fortnightly meetings on Tuesdays from 10am to 12 noon in Effingham Methodist Church Hall as soon as we are allowed.
