Sunday, January 17th from 2-3 Pacific Time on Zoom (see link below)
Who’s Hosting This Sunday’s Virtual Jam?
This week’s jam is hosted by Karen Chow from Tigard Ukulele group. When we can gather in person, TUG meets every Sunday from 2-4 in Tualatin at the Winona Grange. We play songs for all levels. If you only know C, F and G, then you’ll do fine! We also play some more challenging songs and always try to learn something new. Find out more about TUG here. This week Karen chose her favorite female fronted songs from the Top 100 Hits of the 70s.

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.
