2021 - April 7 Bass Ukulele 101 with Mark

Here’s the video of our live virtual Bass Ukulele 101 Workshop on April 7! You can play along with us as often as you’d like from the comfort of your home and at your own speed. Stay in your pyjamas and slippers and join us! This is the BUG you WANT to catch!


Here are the song excerpts that we used to try out bass patterns during the workshop.

You can play along with any of our jams, any time, to practise your bass ukulele by visiting the BUG JAM VIDEOS page. To really hear the uBass and get the full effect - listen to it through an external speaker. If you're new to ukulele, and want to slow the videos down, just click on the little settings "gear wheel" in the bottom right-hand corner of the video screen and you can select the speed you want.

You'll also find some other useful links for beginner bass ukulele on our TIPS & HELP page.

And in the words of Tim Minchin "Don't panic, wash ya hands, and don't take a sniffle to your Gran's". Love you all!

Sue & Mark
