Sunday, August 1st from 2-3 Pacific Time on Zoom
Who’s Hosting This Sunday’s Virtual Jam?
This week’s session is being hosted by Steve Cooper. Steve plays lots of stringed instruments and frequently teaches ukulele to elementary students when he is a substitute teacher. Steve’s song Ode to Harry Truman was a mainstay on AM radio in the Pacific Northwest and appeared on Good Morning America “only 41 years ago”. He has many many videos at https://www.youtube.com/user/sklomper1.
This week’s jam will be all requests… Please get the requests in by Thursday evening and we’ll play a bunch of songs that you want to play. The e-mail address for requests is “firstname.lastname@example.org“.
The songs will be posted on Friday at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1obqmnIlH9dS0E4Dx4yvd_NlTDx37kJRn?mc_cid=a930b95f4e&mc_eid=0c9b01c7a2
On another note, this will be our only jam in August and we hope to return “in person” starting in September. Please stay tuned for details.
Anyone who is interested in doing a solo is welcome to! Please indicate your interest in the chat when you sign in so that we can get a count. We might not be able to get to everyone but would love to give you a chance to play in front of other people if we can.

Helpful Zoom Tips
- Zoom is like a video chat with multiple people. Just click the link, and then it will prompt you to download the software. You can run it on your computer, but you can use it on your phone too. It will be difficult to have everyone playing altogether because of latency, so the leader will mute everyone during the song so you’ll hear just the leader singing and playing, and then we’ll unmute between songs so that we can chat.
- Have your music book available on a different device than you’re using for the Zoom (for example, Zoom on your computer or phone, and music on your tablet).”See” you Sunday!
We can only have 100 people on at a time, first come first served.
