Here comes Saturday! I always look forward to gathering with you all! Right this minute I’m sitting in a very nice hotel room after a long day of working in the rain. I brought two ukuleles and a bag full of music and I can’t think of a better way to spend the next couple hours than choosing next Saturday’s song list. I already played a dozen songs and forgot to start the list. Lol! Lost in music can be very relaxing. I hope the walls aren’t too thin! Lol!

Yes, there will be a new song from “The Lumineers”, “Sleep On The Floor”. Another great song! This will be the fifth I think!
Plus we will work on “Angela” again. I can’t wait to show you how to add percussion to the picking. So good!
Since we didn’t get to it last time we’ll revisit “Jealous Of The Moon”. I may have another new one ready also. We’ll also play “I’m A Believer” again making it sound even better. If you have the addition page showing the intro, riffs and strums please notice there’s one more riff that we haven’t done yet that kind of sounds a little like “Wipeout”. If you listen to the Monkees version of the song you’ll hear it.
Please recommend songs for us to play on FB, Meetup, our website or via email. Links listed below.
This is the most I ever wrote about our arrangements because an awesome club member asked me to include the songs we would be playing so they could practice. Love that!
12:00 – Performance Time
Get on up! Play us a tune.
