Have you heard C, F and G7 too many times? Like an old, reliable pickup truck these three chords will get the job done… but like an old, reliable pickup truck they could use a little TLC. A paint job, maybe? Or a new set of tires? In this hands-on workshop James shows you how to breathe fresh life into these beloved workhorse chords. Fall in love with C, F and G7 all over again!

James Hill

“If you thought James Hill was simply the ukulele wunderkind,” writes Penguin Eggs magazine, “his latest album will convince you that he is also a great songwriter.” Produced by Joel Plaskett in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, The Old Silo invites you into a world of new beginnings, old regrets, beautiful women, horny geezers and gold diggers. Nominated for both JUNO and ECMA awards, the album cuts a winding path through Folk, Roots and Americana, “reflecting the musical maturity of Hill and Plaskett and delivering in every aspect of music-making.” (The Manitoban)

An award-winning songwriter who “gives the ukulele its dignity back without ever taking himself too seriously” (Songlines), James Hill “proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that in the right hands the uke can be a formidable axe” (Ann Arbor News).
