Mark's edited and posted all the videos from our January BUG Jam including the two open mics - you'll find them below. To really hear the uBass and get the full effect - play it on your sound system! The BUG Event PDF songbook which we used for this jam is posted above! Mike Cox took close up video of the two open mic presentations as well. We don't workshop any of these songs ahead of time, this is just how they happen at the jam - boy do we have messy fun! And isn't that what jamming is all about?!
We play group songs from 7 until 8:30, take a 10 minute break, and then play more group songs and do a few open mic presentations ending at 10:00. Different folks volunteer to lead songs and we're very thankful to all of them! A good number of folks leave after an hour and a half of playing to get home to bed but this time round we managed to hold on to more than half the crowd for the 2nd half!
And for all you folks around the world who might not live near a jam or would like some extra jamming, I've provided the BUG PDF Songbook we used for this jam so you can play along with the us in all our messy madness wherever you are! You can click on the song title in the SONGLIST at the beginning of the PDF and it will take you directly to the songsheet. At the end of the song, you click on the "BACK TO SONGLIST" link, and it takes you back to the table of contents!
If you're new to ukulele, and want to slow the videos down, just click on the little settings "wheel" in the bottom right-hand corner of the video screen and you can slow the recording down! You'll be able to see these jam videos and the accompanying songbook every month by going to the VIDEOS page. The BUG PDF songbooks prepared for each jam are also posted on the SONG BOOKS page!
