East Pasco/Hernando Ukulele Club Message Board › In case you missed our last newsletter...Jan 6th Jam
Dade City, FL
Happy Holidays, Ukers!
We had 20 PEOPLE at our December Uke Jam. Everybody had a great time and it was very successful. I think the new "format" for the club is going to work out.
We will try to warm up with a couple of three chord or "easy" songs (pls. see below). Then, we'll go through our set agenda of songs. We will then proceed in a circle as each person chooses and "leads" a song of his/her choice. Yes, lead the count off and start singing! Any song from the book or beyond is fair game. Since we have members at various playing levels, members have the choice to play along, sing, do both, or sit the song out. Please be respectful of the person's song choice and no griping, please! Everybody has different tastes. This is a good positive way to expand one's horizon and possibly learn new chords.
Per request, a member asked me to email out the January song list early. The songs are from "The Daily Ukulele" book. We will start using the new "Leap Year" book soon so please purchase it. Also, please bring hand-outs of any songs you want the group to play during the "Open Season" time. So, here goes!

Please bring a beverage or snack if you need one. Since this is not a coffee shop it will not have the same amenities.
Peace & Ukes!
