Hello everyone! Ready for some fun ukulele Pluckin’ and Strummin’?This year is flying by! We missed George Harrison’s birthday last meeting so we’ll play a song or two in his honor.
We didn’t have the 6 year Anniversary celebration that we were hoping to have. That doesn’t mean we won’t still celebrate this year. Please stayed tuned for information and thank you for your patience.
9:00 – 9:10 – Extra Help Lesson Session
We will do the early lesson session again before our meeting.
Last meeting it didn’t go as planned so we’ll make some changes.
My apologies. Outline below;
Extra Help Lesson Session
•Begin at 9:00am to 9:10
This ten minute window will give people time to get there and settled to get their ‘learn’ on.
•We will gather in a separate space depending on how many attend.
•Please have questions and materials ready. Specific questions work best because others will most likely benefit and once you have an answer you can work on it and check that off you list.
•If there are no specific questions we’ll pick a topic together and or work on arrangements which we’ll be playing in the second half of our meeting.
•Take notes if you’d like or record a short video or take a photo with your phone. This way you can review the material when you practice, practice, practice.
9:45 – Setup Time
Get your copies of our arrangements for round two. Schedule announcements with me for before or after the break. Prepare materials and tune up that ukulele. Song suggestions are always welcome.

* City Of Stars from the movie

Plus a few others! I’m thinking of writing up a song or two by Bon Iver, The Postal Service, and Vampire Weekend. I’ve been listening to these bands lately. Any suggestions?
