What is Instruments of Happiness?

Instruments of Happiness is a joyful free event on June 16 that includes 100 electric guitars and hundreds of ukuleles paying homage to George Harrison.

Audition details

DATE
Saturday, April 14
Times
1–4 PM
WHERE
Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street

No need to sign up, just arrive with guitar and cable in hand. We will supply the amp.

DO I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO PLAY THE ELECTRIC GUITAR?
Guitarists should have played for at least two years, feel somewhat comfortable with basic barre chords (major and minor) up to the 7th fret, be willing to work with very basic music notation, and, most importantly, be interested in working with 99 other guitarists in creating a truly unique artistic experience and expanding their musical horizons.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER AUDITIONS?
After you audition, Tim Brady will select a final company of 100 electric guitarists who will be part of Instruments of Happiness. Shortly after guitarists will be selected, video tutorials will be available to begin learning the piece.
