Tree Town Ukes Meetup: Warm Weather Songs

  • Jan 28, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Happy New Year! For January, post some warm weather songs to take our minds off of the snow and ice! Print out and bring any music posted after the December meetup. Priority goes to new(er) members and first-time posters. You can find the music up at the top under the "MORE" tab, then click >>Files. Remember, if there's a song you would like to play, please post it there or bring 20 copies to pass around. 

UPDATE: We will also practice some Beatles tunes for the Gilda's Club UkeFest on Feb. 22. Our Club will be leading part of the group strum (from 1:00 to 1:15) and our theme is the Fab Four! We will try to squeeze in 4 EZ ones in the time allotted. 

As usual... we will save a few minutes for open mike for anyone who wants to perform a tune. Finally, please bring a couple of bucks to throw in the hat for room rental and Yahoo meetup fees. Thanks!

UPDATE II: If anyone knows somebody who plays clarinet, accordion or some other small, non-electric instrument and wants to sit in occasionally for jams or gigs please let Greg know. The ideal person would be able to play solos or just the melody lines (by ear) of oldies like "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover," "Shine On Harvest Moon," etc. Sorry no pianos or guitars.

    could anyone help me find the chords for Leonard Cohen's Anthem. I love this song. I found the chords for Halleluia and it's pretty easy so I think Anthem will be to but I can't find the uke chords for this one. thanks.

      chordie.com has it. Under 'artist' go to Cohen, and Anthem is listed. Song lyrics and chord fingering are there. On the right side, under the chord chart, is the option to change the fingering to the instrument you want. Pretty cool!

    I was thinking about going crazy from being cooped up in the house with the frigid weather. After last night, I think I can keep going for a few more weeks! Thanks!

    I really enjoyed last night and I will be back! How about Love songs as a theme for February, in honor of Valentines Day?

    If you can play one chord, you can probably use it in most songs. That's enough to get you hooked.

    Once there was a little boy who played a ukulele. He'd go around town: clink, clunk, CLONK! Of course, the grownups would be busy and they'd say: "Take that thing out of here. We're talking. Git!" And they'd kick him out of the house.
