Hi Uke friends,
We hope to find you well – and happily strumming, chucking or picking your Uke because come 2pm, Saturday 1 June 2013 we are back jamming & chatting & having a “Good Ol’ Time” getting together for the sake of singing & uking! Look forward to seeing you at the Old Schoolhouse, Wharf St, Logan Village.
Our apologies for cancelling our May Meeting but other commitments got in the way of either of us hosting our usual gathering.
In April we played ‘Bye Bye Love’- Everly Brothers; ‘Happy Together’ – Turtles; ‘Margaritaville’ – Jimmy Buffett, ‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow’ – Carole King/Gerry Goffin and ‘Ain’t She Sweet?’ – Milton Ager & Jack Yellen.
We also had a “favourite song” choice from each of the group which included; ‘Why Worry’ – Dire Straits; ‘Have You Ever Seen the Rain’ – CCR; ‘Love Me Tender’ – Elvis Presley; ‘Ring Of Fire’ – Johnny Cash and many more.
Michael also showed us (once again) how we can play out the music using ALL our fingers & thumb and I think it is about time we organized a 1-2 hour workshop with Michael if he is willing? Michael is an awesome Uke player who loves all the music from 1940’s backwards! He is currently putting together an E-Music Book with Uke Facts/Trivia concentrating on the earliest years of Ukulele.
The group decided they would like to try 4 new songs at June’s meet.
1. We’ll Sing In The Sunshine – Gale Garnett
2. Delilah – Tom Jones
3. I’m Leaning on a Lamp Post – George Formby
4. You Better Be Home Soon – Crowded House
Music for You Better Be Home Soon is attached, and we will have print copies of all the songs at the meeting as per usual.
Our other songs for June will be a REPEAT of April songs ‘as above’ because we did enjoy playing them and we had such lovely harmonies happening.
One last link – how to make a cake pan banjo ukulele!
With Ukeing Regards,
Celia & Marg
