Tree Town Ukes Valentine's Strum

UPDATE:  Come early and shop Oz's for strings, kazoos, books, cables and all uke essentials. If you have a new uke, chances are it came with cheap strings. Try a set of Martin fluorocarbon or Aquila strings and hear what a difference good strings can make.  

We will also be running through some repertoire tunes in order to get a live set together. If you are interested in playing some shows this summer/fall (retirement homes, outdoor festivals), let Greg or Annette know. Also, we're still looking for an accordion player to sit in!

For February... Post your songs of love and heartache. We need about 10-12... otherwise it will be a short meetup. You don't have to lead the song, but you may have to hum a few bars to get us started if it's obscure.

Print out and bring any music posted after the January meetup. 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 (PDF is best) or bring 15-20 copies. 

As always, we'll pass the fez to pay for the room, so bring a few bucks to drop in. And we should have some time for open mike if anyone wants to perform a solo tune.

In other business, our own Ukulele Lady, Fawn K. is putting together a Veteran's Day ukulele music video project. This will be a montage of photos set to ukulele music. If you have a photo of a service man or service woman you'd like to include, please see Fawn for details.

    I just put up a poll to see if anyone's interested in a gig or two this summer at a farmer's market in A2. To vote, please look in the "More" section and click "Polls."

    Sorry we could not make it. 30 min. zero visibility snow hit Plymouth on our way out the driveway. Looking forward to March meeting -- more love songs??

      Hi Rich, I drove through that on my way home from work -- not fun. March will be only repertoire songs. Stay tuned for the set list. Thanks!

    Thanks to everyone for making this one of the most productive meetups in months! A special shout out to our newcomers who hung in there and contributed to the very positive vibe. Please download the MP3s and practice at home, and we'll see you next month!

    So sorry I didn't make it and didn't change my RSVP. I was planning on it, but after work I just was soooo tired that My car auto piloted me home to bed. I do miss attending and will make a special effort in April, Maybe My winter Blahs will be over and ready for Spring.

    Posted a last minute song, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do. Adventurous souls can learn the bridge on their own--chords are too hard after I transposed the verses to C.

    Hey Tree Town peeps, I just found a great deal on an electronic tuner. 3 bucks, no shipping! I have no affiliation with this company. Just bought one and it works as good as the other tuner I have. I thought I would pass it on. I will also have mine at the next meeting if anyone would like to check it out.

    I posted this under last nights meetup, but it maybe missed there now so....

    How about Love songs as a theme for February, in honor of Valentines Day?

    January 29, 2014

    • Greg

      I think we left it at "songs that mention 'hearts' and 'red.'" Of course themes are only suggested, so Love Songs/Valentine's Day would certainly be appropriate too.
