Once again we meet to share in our zest and zeal for the highly entertaining, sometimes underestimated, wonder of all wonders, the Ukulele.

We will be concentrating on the material for our upcoming performance. Start practicing early and write down any questions you have about the songs. We will continue to work out any kinks and make each song sublime. Looking forward to Strummin’ and a Pluckin’ with you all on August 27th. Performance arrangements will be available at our meeting.

Remember, bring pencils to take notes. We’ll be ironing out strums, harmonies, and fiddly bits.

  • Hound Dog – Pg. 111
  • Good Night Ladies – Pg. 95
  • Me And Bobby McGee – Pg. 158
  • No Woman No Cry
  • Sentimental Journey – Pg. 205
  • Cindy – Pg. 55 (Check out Robert Plant – Band of Joy)

Break Time 15-20 min.

  • Hang On Little Tomato
  • Apple Blossom
  • Proud Mary
  • All I Have To Do Is Dream
  • Longing To Belong
  • Man Of Constant Sorrow – (time permitting)
  • Performance time – Time to share and/or Play something solo

As always, beginners come a little early for additional attention. We’ve extended our time to 12:30pm so we can have a longer break as well as have individual performance time. Remember to please park on the street if you are able bodied. See you bright and early!

Tooch has been busy writing more arrangements for all you Pluckin’ Strummers out there. As we prepare for our gigs, we want your input concerning material. We have compiled a large list of songs that need to whittled down – Let’s vote! Upcoming meetings will include practice time for performance songs chosen by you, the PS members. We plan on having additional get-togethers as needed to prepare for our moment in the spotlight.

Songs From The Daily Ukulele

Not being lazy, we swear! We figured that many of you have probably opened the book to the first song so why not get the A’s taken care of. These should go pretty quickly so we’ll have lots of time for the arrangements. We had fun practicing these and so will you. Plus it saves time turning pages, lol.

  • Are You lonesome Tonight – Pg. 13
  • After You’re Gone – Pg 14
  • Ain’t Misbehavin’ – Pg. 15
  • Ain’t She Sweet – Pg. 16
  • Ain’t We Got Fun – Pg. 17
  • All I have To Do Is Dream – Pg. 18
  • All My Loving – Pg. 19

Break Time

Arrangements – Available at the meeting or by request through our blog site.

  • Apple Blossom – The White Stripes


  • Longing To Belong – Eddie Vedder – Redo with strum details


  • No Woman No Cry – Bob Marley

  • Man Of Constant Sorrow – The Soggy Bottom Boys
