Meet Jan 25

This meeting is all about our arrangements. I’ve been laid up for the past few days with the flu so I’ve been working on a redo of Love Her Madly and Brown Eyed Girl in G. We’ll have copies available at the meeting. The first half will be filled with Quick Picks. Keeping it simple with familiar songs we all love. I’ve also been working on Daniel Ho’s “Pineapple Mango” which we can work on if you like. I’ll bring copies and or you can download it from Ukulele Underground.

For those of you in town who would like to gather for an informal (not that we are ever particularly formal) meeting, we plan to be at our usual location at the usual time this Saturday, Dec 28th. Quick picks, performances, a jam, a quick lesson or pick 2ch’s brain on some noodley bit you’ve been wanting to learn.

A small donation to the church would be appreciated but regular fees are waved. Hope to see you there.

Happy New Year!

Meeting the 2nd and 4th

December 14th!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

This meeting will be a little different. We’ll start off with some Holiday songs from book one and then work our way into some new material from book two. Notice there are fewer songs to allow time to learn the new material.

We will then finish strong with “Love Her Madly”, a rockin’ tune by The Doors, arranged for ukulele in multiple parts. Download and print the various parts and get to practicing. We will have copies available at club. We will get them online soon as well.

Performance time is still on so prepare something for us all to enjoy. Let’s have a great meeting. Thanks to all!
