Cinco de Mayo Music

  • Apr 26, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Court Gonzalez' Home

This time we'll be working on a couple of songs from south or the border.  We'll be doing the Richie Valen's hit 'La Bamba' and the song 'De Colores'

As usual we'll practice these new songs, then let everyone pick one or two from to play from our previous songs. 

We've got the music posted already, and will soon have examples posted on the 'Ukulele Friends web page, so check back. 

Check out the Examples and Tutorials under the pages tab to get a feel for the strum patterns, lyrics and chords.  Also, if you go to the 'More', then 'Files' tab you'll find the new songs, plus all our old songs.  If you double click on them, a printable pdf will open.  Please be sure and bring copies of the new and old songs, if you can.  Court has a nice big screen that he can project the music onto as well. 

The Meet-Up will be at 1:00 pm on April 26th, 2014 and we'll play and socialize for 2-3 hours.

If you have any questions, you can call my cell [masked] or send me an e-mail.
