Welcome to Bytown Ukulele Group (BUG)
We're located in Ottawa, Canada's capital city. BUG Jams are for everyone who loves playing ukulele! Join us to strum, sing, and be merry! All skill levels welcome! Children who play uke are very welcome to participate with a parent although songs often have adult themes. We have so much fun!
HOSTED BY SUE AND MARK ROGERS since 2010
COST: IT'S FREE! AND YOU DON'T NEED TO BE ANY GOOD.
WHEN: Once a month on a Wednesday from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. But come early to enjoy chatting with uke friends, to share tips and tricks, and to ogle each others ukes!
WHERE: Red Bird Live Music, 1165 Bank Street, Ottawa. For all the BUG jam details, including what songs we'll be playing, go to the BUG JAMS & EVENTS page and select the link for the upcoming jam.
Beginners - don't be shy! Don't wait to join us in a jam until you "get better". We'll share tips with you 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!

BUG Facebook: We post events on our Facebook page that BUGs might be interested in, and members use it to communicate, post uke videos they've enjoyed, and all sorts of other uke-related info of interest to Ottawa ukers. You should join - it's really fun to communicate with other BUG members!
