I know you hate Mondays as much as the next person, so here's a reason to start liking them: the ukulele. The Halifax Ukulele Gang holds a free meeting on the first Monday of each month from 7-9pm at the Celtic Corner on Alderney Drive, for those who want to learn the instrument.
These meetings are targeted at everyone, from the musically inclined to those looking for a grand sing-along. Whether it's a traditional song or an AC/DC tune, you never know what you'll hear. Jonathan Grady, a head Uker, says they make sure that everyone is outfitted with a uke and can begin with some easy songs.
"Over the course of the evening," he says, "we jump into a variety of pieces by request. The more experienced players help out the newer ones."
The Gang's website assures anyone interested: "If you have always wanted to play a musical instrument but have thought it was too difficult, then the ukulele is the instrument for you." –Ryan Hemsworth
