Ukuleles Canberra Saturday Meetup - Numbers Day

  • Feb 2, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • St James Church Hall CURTIN

Special Numbers day.
You are asked to select a song that has a number in the title. There are several in the song book and a huge list will be posted on the message board before the New Year. If you wish to share a song, please mention it on this page, so others don't double up. Bring about 25 copies if the song is not in the songbook.

There will be a break for tea/coffee at about 3pm.

    I agree; in addition to seeing and hearing ourselves,it's a document that you can show family and friends to say: that's what I've been doing!

    020213 Numbers / World Ukelele Day gets 5 stars from me. Thanks to Mr W & DD for the video, and to all my other good uke buddies for sharing it.

    In the words of JFK, we do these things not because they are easy, but because they are hard. In that vein, and in case you can't find the original video, I've deleted the original 8 days a week video and replaced it with a newer, updated version that you can find here:

    What fun!

      I like the new intro, with URoC and Ukulele Republic of Canberra sliding across the screen. Great effort, Andrew! and Don, playing the lens

    Thanks Andrew - well done wobble and all. Great fun to look at and we do all sound in tune which is a bit plus!

  • Andrew R.

    Here's a video of 8 Saturday's Days a Week, such as it is, to help commemorate World Ukulele Day. Thanks for the use of the lens Don, I think I spent the whole time coming to grips with it. Mr Wobblecam is back!

      That lens has the same name as me. Good job Andrew.

    I saw the original comment and was taken aback. This group is the least snobbish, most friendly and welcoming bunch ever. To each their own...

    These postings are in response to a comment posted by a new member. Her comment was very negative and has been removed, however the gist of it was that she thought we were unfriendly, unwelcoming and snooty. She arrived, lingered in the doorway until greeted and welcomed, then was introduced to several members, was helped to tune her ukulele and offered a songbook to share. She left after 10 minutes.

    I came in after doing the beginners course and joined 3 chord Thursday. I did stay for the whole meet up, not just for 2 songs - that seems like quite a short time to make such a harsh judgement. It is an incredibly friendly group and everyone is always happy to help everyone else. I agree with Lorraine, there is not an ounce of snobbishness, and if you keep going you improve!

    I am sorry you felt that way. When I first joined the group, as a beginner, I found it difficult to join in with most of the songs. However due to the friendly nature of the group I persevered. I just love it.
    I enjoy the meetings because there is not ounce of snobbiness and I am able to play most of the songs.

    I nominate for the Beatles 'One After 909'. Will post the chords under Files and of course bring copies to the meeting, but if you can please check it out before we meet.
    Cheers all

    Changed my mind - when you were sweet 16 (The Fureys):

    Anyone chance the solo on their resonator?

    January 22, 2013

    • Michael R.

      The key is the same, working on it now . . .

      January 22, 2013

      Got it! Now to practice
