Meeting – Saturday, August 10th

Hello Pluckers!

Here is this Saturday’s list as promised. It would have been earlier today but I was sidetracked by working on an arrangement that I couldn’t stop until it was done. OCD!

Hello Pluckin’ Strummers! So today is Sunday and the list of songs for next Saturday’s meeting must be posted. We will be using book one, the yellow Daily Ukulele.

As many of you know I’m dealing with some minor health issues and depending on the scheduling of my next surgery will determine my availability to attend and lead the meeting. I’ll try to schedule it so that I can attend but I won’t know the details until tomorrow.

The 45 minute Free Lesson Sessions from now until the 2019 Las Angeles International Ukulele Festival will be used to rehearse songs for us to play at the event. Sorry to those needling beginners instruction. Those needing instructions can make arrangements with me and we’ll work something out.

Hello faithful Pluckin’ Strummers!

There have been a few questions about our next meeting and yes, we will be meeting this Saturday the 25th.

My daughter sent me another “listen to this song” text. This is a piano ballad that works well on the ukulele.

I also got brainwashed by watching The Voice and wrote up a classic country song.
