NOTES FOR RAW BEGINNERS to practise at home to help get to improver level.
If you have a brand new ukulele then you need to tune it up  as often as you can before the meeting.
New ukes tend to come with slack strings and because they are nylon, will stretch and stretch until they settle down.
Here is a link to YouTube on how to tune up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fk_Ot02AUbc
