South Tampa Ukulele Jam

Today, when you come in the gate, turn left immediately into the parking lot. The Hall is right there up front.  You will see the pool as you enter the gate, look left and there is the big hall.  Just park and come on in!  Gate code is 043.  

Special Announcement!  I was able to reserve the Hall at our park for Sept. 21st!  We can start at 2 PM for set up and social and then 2:30 start the jam. The hall seats 250 people, so we can go as large as you want. There is a stage too! Just help me when it is over to put the tables away!

 From now to the end of the year, I can get the hall on either the 3rd or 4th Saturday, then January will have to be outdoors or my place, then from Feb 2014 to Dec 2014, I got the hall on every 3rd Saturday!!! Yay!!!

 Beginner to Advanced, this Jam will be ongoing in South Tampa just across the Gandy Bridge on the north side. You will need the gate code to get in, it is 043 . rsvp at my email account [masked] and I will email you some charts that are handy for upping your Uke game.  My phone is[masked] if you get lost. .The location is Homes Of Regency Cove, 4851 West Gandy Blvd, Tampa, Florida, 33611.

For those who wish to stay and jam we can do the after jam in my backyard right on the water with the tiki torches. That is always fun!

Songs for September 21st are again in the Blue Leap Year Addition Daily Ukulele.

1. As Time Goes By pg 27

2. Bus Stop pg 56

3. Catch A Falling Star pg 67 (cause that was fun to play!)

4. Do You Know The Way To San Jose pg 88 (not that hard, I'll show you!)

5. Every Breath You Take pg 110

6. I Don't Know Why pg 161 (corrected from wrong pg number)

7. I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter pg 176

8. It Was A Very Good Year pg 193

9. It's Now Or Never  pg 196

10. Lean On Me pg 214

As always, if you love a song and want us to do it at the jam, call it out if it is in the book.  If it is not in the book and you want to do it, bring sheets for everyone so we can play along.  I suggest that you have the Uke chord diagram over the words if it is difficult.

  See you all in September.  Don't forget folding chairs for the after jam outdoors!  Also, bring water, it will be warm!  OHHH, and because outside is subject to breezes, go to the DOLLAR STORE and pick up some of those clips to put on your music and music stands to hold your music books open!

      Wish you could! But if you are going to be around later in the day/evening, let me know!!! We can harmonize by the water!

    Really looking forward to tomorrow. Don't forget that there is a large stage and we will have a PA system set up so that some of you can get up and show us your stuff if you are into performing a few for us. I will have the performances interspersed with jamming from the book as well as jamming from some of our old faves like Jambalaya etc. Also, if you want to stay afterwards and go out to the water, they have fixed up a new area right next to the hall that is perfect for hanging out and getting a little sea breeze by the docks. I am yours for the day! LOL. See you at 2 PM!

      No prob at all Jennifer, we will be at the hall from about 2 to 6 and then head back to my place or by the water. Looking forward to seeing you!
