Welcome to Bytown Ukulele Group (BUG)

BUG is for everyone in the Ottawa area who loves ukulele! Come out to strum, sing, eat, drink, and be merry! All levels welcome! We have so much fun!

Beginners – don’t be shy! Don't wait to come to a jam until you "get better". You'll get lots of help from fellow ukers and even though you might not be able to keep up with everything right at the beginning, you'll still be able to belt out the songs, and you'll catch on quickly to the chords with practice. We suggest that you start becoming familiar with chords such as C, C7, F, G, G7, D, D7, B flat, A, Am, A7, Em, E7 to maximize your experience. An electronic chromatic tuner is also an invaluable purchase! The Ottawa Folklore Centre staff are very helpful in everything to do with ukes. You can phone them to enquire about ukulele lessons and workshops or pay them a visit at 1111 Bank St.

For more information about BUG, contact Sue at ukulelema@icloud.com
